Most failures in equipment—whether electrical, mechanical, process, or electronic—are signaled by a significant rise in operating temperature long before failure occurs. Infrared thermography can detect heat patterns in the infrared wave-length spectrum that are not visible to the unaided eye. These heat patterns can help identify deteriorating components before they fail. Infrared thermography is the science of detecting infrared energy emitted from an object, converting it to apparent temperature, and displaying the result as an infrared image.
Crum Home Inspections uses advanced technology to detect temperature differences in key areas that indicate a potential problem. Such areas include Overheating Circuit Breakers, Leaks in HVAC Ducts, leaks in roof sheathing, lack of insulation behind walls, moisture behind walls etc
