What Is Infrared Thermography?
Thermography seeks to locate problems in your home by examining things via specialized cameras that see heat signatures. The service takes a look at your home’s exterior and interior both, using the camera equipment to look for and locate areas of the home where you might be losing heat where you don’t want to, or gaining outdoor temperatures via poor insulation and other issues.

During your thermographic inspection, your electrician will use an infrared camera to check for:
- 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
Thorough Home Inspections with Kolb Electric
Our experts are specially trained in the use of thermographic equipment and stand ready to help you figure out where your home needs help. Our inspections are complete and thorough, meaning we’ll check your home from top to bottom. We use our cutting-edge equipment to look for:
- 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. 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 or your roof, which can help you pinpoint leaks and lessen their effects before they do major damage to your home.
- Electrical systems: one of the best things about an infrared thermography scan is that it helps you see any deficiencies in your electrical systems, including loose connections that could cause certain appliances to run inefficiently (or to 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. Our infrared camera inspection may even be able to detect missing or damaged structural components.
