Extended Home Inspection
What to expect with an
This house inspection includes all checklist items from an Essential Home inspection plus a Thermal Imaging Assessment. Using industry approved technology and equipment our Mike Holmes inspectors are backed by Mike’s standards of quality by using the innovations, knowledge, training and right equipment to properly inspect your home. Essential for homeowners who want the very best for their home.
Despite what you might have seen on television or in movies, thermographic imaging cameras can’t see behind walls (or ghost for that matter). Instead, they detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces.
Anything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. A thermal camera is able to detect this heat and create a thermal image based on that information. A qualified professional then examines the thermal image and assesses what’s potentially going on behind the surface that’s causing the temperature variations in the thermal image.
