Thermal imaging helps the inspector to uncover problems that aren’t always visible to the human eye. The thermal camera employs a process that translates the heat signature in your home on a gradient scale, ranging from bright red to dark blue. Higher temperatures will translate as red, while darker colors are triggered by lower temperatures in wet areas.
In analyzing these images, the inspector can detect sources of energy loss, pinpoint dangerous electrical hot spots, flue leaks in the chimney that can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, locate wood-destroying insects and detect moisture intrusion (which can be a catalyst for mold). In short, thermal imaging can be an important preventative measure in protecting your home from potential hazards.

If you plan on selling your home, you might want to consider getting a pre-listing inspection. NextDay Inspect® offers pre-listing inspection will allow the seller to uncover any potential problems that can compromise the sale of the home. It’s not very different from the usual home inspections, but there are significant benefits to getting a pre-listing inspection done.
- By getting a pre-listing inspection done, the seller will be able to accurately priced their home as they will know the potential defects and can take care of them to improve the appeal of the house.

- Make Repairs Ahead of Time
- The inspection report will indicate any defects or potential defects found during the inspection. The seller will be able to see which items need significant repair.
- Saves A lot of Time
- By getting a pre-listing inspection done, the seller will have more control over marketing their home. There are fewer inspection-related issues to negotiate, which in turn allows for a faster transaction.
