this is ceiling moisture
and it would not be seen without infrared technology
Infrared thermal imaging is a science that we use that is non-invasive and non-
destructive. This tool helps us determine changes in temperature just below the surface.
What Infrared Thermal Imaging helps us see
-faulty or overheating wiring
-missing or wet insulation
-the presence of carpenter ants, termites, or other pests
-Heating and air conditioning issues
-moisture behind walls
-moisture in ceilings
What is the difference between Infrared and regular Photography?
Infrared thermal imaging is heat-sensitive photography can reveal these and other
issues that cannot be seen by the naked eye or with regular photography.
Everything has a temperature
Infrared thermal imaging is able to compare that temperature of an object or system,
and compare it to the surrounding temperature.
Can Infrared see through walls?
Infrared thermal imaging is NOT x-ray vision. You cannot see through walls.
When you are seeing the differences in the surface temperatures of different materials.
You might think that you are seeing through the wall, but you are not.
It's these temperature differences that may indicate moisture (mould) or problems with the
electrical, insulation, HVAC, plumbing etc..
Infrared thermal imaging has helped us diagnose little problems before they turn into
bigger problems. It may help us find big problems or conditions in a home before it becomes
