Thermal Imaging (Infrared Technology)

Updated: Jul 17, 2023



Expands its General Home Inspection Service to Include Thermal Imaging (Infrared Technology)

DURBAN, KZN. (July 14, 2022) -- Picture Window Property Inspections is pleased to announce that it is now including Thermal Imaging as part of our General Home Inspection service.

Thermal imaging (also known as thermography and infrared or IR technology) is an emerging technology that may allow us to show you things about your home that no one can show you using other inspection methods. Thermal imaging produces images of invisible heat energy emitted from objects and systems in the home and allows me to measure it. Thermal imaging may help diagnose the problem rather than merely identify symptoms and can sometimes, but not always, identify and document: electrical faults before they cause a fire; overloaded and undersized circuits; circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement; missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold; possible pest infestation; hidden roof leaks (before they cause serious damage); air-conditioner compressor leaks; under-fastening and/or missing framing members; structural defects; broken seals in double-pane windows; energy loss and loss of system efficiency; dangerous flue leaks; damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems; unknown plumbing leaks; and overheated equipment. The colour images produced can then be included in the inspection report to provide supporting documentation. One picture is worth a thousand words.

Homeowners (or prospective owners) wishing to have their homes assessed may contact Picture Window Property Inspections to schedule their General Home Inspection at 083 777 2968, or by emailing
