The attic is one of those places that most homeowners don’t like to spend a lot of time in – which is understandable. It’s dark, hot, and dirty up there. Unfortunately, this is also a part of your home where a lot of common issues start. The good news is that a professional home inspection with thermal imaging can help to identify these issues.
One common issue is leaks or gaps in the roof or siding. These may not be easily identified from the outside, or even from a visual inspection of the attic. However, an infrared camera can identify changes in temperature caused by these areas.
Another common issue has to do with the all-important central air conditioning in a home. Typically, ductwork for the HVAC system is placed in a home’s attic. Thermal imaging can help detect cracks, loose seals, or other ductwork damage that is causing you to lose cool air into your attic.
