Free Infrared Thermal Imaging Included
Home Inspections of Nebraska is redefining inspection standards in Lincoln and Omaha
Home Inspections of Nebraska continues to be an inspection leader in Nebraska by using the most advanced technology available. Infrared Thermal Imaging allows our inspectors to detect things the human eye cannot see. Make sure you are getting the most thorough inspection possible, call us today. Nobody likes “surprises” when it comes to their home; especially when there is a “BIG” dollar amount attached to those unexpected “SURPRISES”! With Thermal Imaging Technology, we’re able to help protect you against hidden problems and/or damages, no matter if you’re the seller, the buyer or even just a complacent homeowner looking to make your home as efficient as possible.
With Infrared Imaging, we’re able to see what other Nebraska home inspectors can’t:
- Potential internal structural problems
- Moisture (which can lead to the development of mold)
- HVAC duct work leaks
- Displaced and/or missing insulation
- Plumbing and roof leaks
- Electrical hot spots that can lead to house fires if not corrected
- Heat loss and cold air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows
What is Infrared Thermography?
We’re able to provide you with a more thorough home inspection when buying or selling your home. We’re also able to save you money by accurately identifying the source(s) of any underlying issues (eliminating any destructive work to find the source), and determine any areas that could be more energy efficient within your home.
Infrared Thermography (IR) is a technology that allows us to “see” what the human eye cannot. IR detects tiny but crucial differences in temperature throughout a house, including behind the walls, beneath the floors and beyond ceilings. These temperature variations often reveal “invisible” problems concealed from the human eye, including hidden moisture intrusion, roof and plumbing leaks, faulty wiring, missing insulation, ventilation problems, broken window seals, heating and cooling systems, appliances and insect hives inside walls.
Most of these problems will go undetected in an ordinary visual inspection. But with our enhanced infrared home inspection, inspectors can easily and quickly scan the house and pinpoint these concerns, providing clients with additional vital information that competitors simply can’t offer.
Under the right or properly controlled conditions, infrared allows a trained inspector to make determinations about what is happening behind the wall based on the surface temperature of the wall and differences in the building material’s thermal properties.
Why Have An Inspection With Infrared Thermography?
As an additional tool to our traditional home inspection, the IR camera allows us to offer an enhanced home inspection. An enhanced home inspection is our traditional home inspection with the added benefits of IR technology which allows our inspectors to “see” more than what the human can “see” alone. The “traditional” home inspection can provide a lot of information about a property but is limited to what an inspector can see without the aid of IR technology. IR provides the inspector a much more in depth look at certain conditions that may exist at a property. Our Inspectors are trained and certified to use and interpret the findings of IR technology. Some competitors may have an IR camera, but lack the proper training to interpret what they are seeing.
An “Enhanced” IR home inspection will allow you to know, in advance of your real estate purchase, any issues that may exist that are invisible to the human eye. This way issues can be addressed before the purchase or can be handled after you take possession of the property.
