Because of its ability to capture more information than the human eye, you will learn and potentially spot current issues in your house. Many of these deficiencies may be hidden from view and not present themselves until after you purchase your home and are stuck with the problem.

Infrared Testing Provides Detailed Information About the Condition of Your Home

How do you know if your home is experiencing rapid heat loss in the winter or letting cooling air out in the summer? With infrared technology, you’ll see cool air escaping through a gap under your front door or a large amount of heat radiating from your windows. 5280 Homecheck Inspections offers the services you need to detect these energy losses in your home.

An Infrared Camera can spot:
• Heat Loss and Air Infiltration in Walls, Ceilings, Floors, Windows and Doors
• Damaged and/or Malfunctioning Radiant Heating Systems

• Broken Seals in Windows
• Structural Defects Leading to Energy Loss

Infrared is a Tool That Tells You That 5280 HomeCheck Inspections is Serious About Your Home Inspection

Many inspection companies do not offer thermal inspections. Why? It’s mainly about cost. Infrared Cameras are very expensive, and training their inspectors to do thermal inspections is another cost they are not willing to invest in. We believe that any tool that allows us to spot potential problems within a house is something our customers need and deserve.
