Your Home Check has developed a homebuilder’s service program that utilizes new infrared technology which provides an “MRI” of the home.

How infrared works

  • By operating the A/C or heating system, we create a temperature differential between the inside of the room and the inside of the wall or ceiling.
  • All materials within the wall absorb heat at different rates which creates a thermal picture for us
  • The camera then detects temperature changes less than a 1/10 of a degree so moisture, which is always cooler is easy to detect or an empty wall cavity.

What can infrared technology detect?

  • Moisture intrusion- Wall and roof leaks
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Missing insulation
  • Electrical problems
  • Thermal loss
  • Ductwork leaks
  • Freon leaks in A/C condensers

Specifics on the process

  • Takes about 45 minutes
  • Before scheduling, we need power, gas & water & operational A/C & furnace and preferably the appliances have been installed but in some cases this is not possible.
  • Minimal workers present such as painters, sheetrock repair or flooring
  • After scanning there is a normal 48 hour turn around time in which we will do one of two things
  • Email an issue report with detailed pictures to builder for repair
  • After repairs are made, builder calls us back out to rescan and verify repairs
  • End result is an infrared certification issued for home which will be emailed to builder

Request can be made via fax, phone or email

Allow 3 business days to schedule

Infrared Certification

See sample certification that will be emailed to the builder if no issue found within 48 hours.  The home buyer can also be presented with a copy.
