Infrared Moisture & Energy Loss Survey

Moisture & Energy Loss Survey cape coral florida Gulf Coast Home Inspections

Increasing home comfort, air quality and well being!

Infrared Thermography is recognized as the fastest and most cost effective way to find moisture in building materials as well as areas of energy loss -insulation deficiencies and air infiltration- in your home. Infrared imaging allows for a non destructive thermal assessment of a structure. Moisture intrusion and energy loss surveys without infrared technology involve a lot of guesswork and assumptions. With the right equipment, proper education and experience, the thermographer can find and determine the presence of moisture, air infiltration and the severity of missing or defective insulation in walls, ceilings and other areas.

Moisture leads to Mold

You deserve high air quality! Locating potential, wet areas for mold growth is our focus and one of the strengths of infrared imaging. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and all of them will grow with moisture. On the opposite, mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present.

Question: How do you know when it's time to have a Moisture Survey? You have:

Symptoms and Cause! Cost-effective removal and drying or replacement of wet components is a good and important step. But there must be a cause that lead to the moisture inside your home! This is what a Moisture Survey can do for you: We focus on finding the source of the problem because symptoms tend to reappear after a while if the cause has not been fixed. We'll locate the probable cause and you'll get a report with radiometric pictures of the critical areas including recommendations how to fix it.

Energy Loss = Insulation Deficiencies and Air Infiltration

Energy loss accounts for up to 30% of your energy bill!

Getting to know where the areas of energy losses are located is one of the most effective ways to save money and increase the living comfort in your home. Remedies often cost a few dollars only, but have a great effect. Adding insulation, re-caulking of cracks, or installing some weather stripping takes very little effort, but creates big improvements.

With an Energy Loss Survey you go a step in the right direction: Saving energy by not wasting it anymore! We'll find the deficiencies and the survey report shows you where problem areas are located. Including suggestions what to do and how to improve.
