Since 1925, Kolb Electric has been providing top-quality residential electrical services in the Washington, DC area. Since the beginning, one of our highest priorities has been helping people save money on their energy bills by helping them explore energy-efficient solutions for their homes.
One of the best ways to save money is with an infrared thermography inspection from Kolb Electric! Using an infrared camera, our licensed, trained technicians will identify hidden areas where your home is losing energy. Some things we’ll identify include:
- Faulty wiring, breakers, and fuses
- Moisture spots
- Hidden mold and mildew
- Leaky pipes and ducts
- Leaks in the roof and ceilings
- Cracks in the foundation
- Spots where you’re losing heat and energy
- Potential structural integrity problems
- Inadequate insulation
- Problems with your ventilation
- Potential termite infestations
- Potential spots where other pests may live
What Are the Benefits of Infrared Thermography Inspections?
When combined with traditional home inspection techniques, the infrared thermography inspection method reveals considerably more about your house than can be seen with conventional inspection tools. Some things we can detect with thermographic inspections include:
Water leaks. Using an infrared camera to scan the inside of your home can reveal moisture leakage around plumbing systems, the roof, any windows, etc. We’ll be able to see these areas because areas with more moisture will appear darker than surrounding warmer, dry areas.
Insulation deficiencies. Our scanners will reveal large temperature differences within your home where insulation is deficient or absent.
Roof leaks. We’ll be able to spot water and moisture intrusion and accumulation below the surface of your roof, which can help you pinpoint leaks and lessen their effects before they do any major damage to your home.
Electrical system problems. One of the best things about an infrared thermography scan is that it helps you see any deficiencies in your electrical system, including loose connections that could cause certain appliances to run inefficiently (or not run at all).
Structural issues. Finally, infrared thermography scans will help locate structural issues within your home, including poor heat transfer, bad conductivity, and more. We may even be able to detect missing or damaged structural components.
