What is a Thermal Imaging Home Inspection?
Thermal imaging home inspections are a non-invasive way to identify problems in a home. They use infrared thermal sensors to measure the surface temperature of walls, floors, and ceilings – which can reveal underlying issues such as moisture intrusion, insufficient insulation, faulty wiring, and damaged pipes. With just one scan, the technician can detect an entire range of possible issues before they become visible. What’s more, no changes or modifications need to be made to the property for these scans to take place. With a thermal imaging home inspection in Houston from Morrell Inspection Services, you can rest assured that any problems will be identified quickly and accurately – giving you peace of mind and helping to protect your investment!
A thermal imaging camera can detect warm and cool signatures. A warm image is represented by white and red colors, while a cold image appears yellowish and blue on the screen. Since moisture absorbs heat energy, it leaves a cool signature, which is picked up by a thermal imaging camera to detect potential water leaks.

Benefits of Thermal Imaging for Home Inspection
Thermal imaging for home inspections offers a variety of benefits.
Benefit #1 — Helps Detect Potential Water Leaks
If not addressed timely, water leaks can cause unprecedented damage to your property. What makes it more challenging is the fact that the issue doesn’t appear on the surface until it’s too late. However, with the help of a thermal imaging scan, you can detect potential water leaks before they have a chance to affect your property’s structural integrity.
Benefit #2 — Non-Invasive
Unlike conventional inspection methods, thermal imaging does not involve any physical changes to the property. All it takes is for the thermal imaging camera to have unobstructed access to the surface under scrutiny. That said, thermal imaging is completely non-invasive.
Benefit #3 — Quick and Easy
A thermal imaging inspection can be performed in a couple of hours. And since the process is non-invasive, the buyer or seller need not be present on site during the inspection.
This aspect makes thermal imaging an excellent option for buyers/sellers who want a thorough inspection done without disrupting their busy schedule.
Additionally, thermal imaging is a cost-effective solution that can help protect your investment, as any problems will be identified quickly and easily with just one scan. With Morrell Inspection Services, you can rest assured that all potential risks and problems will be professionally assessed and addressed with safety in mind!
FREE LIMITED THERMAL SCAN W/ HOME INSPECTION
Infrared/Thermal cameras or other equipment will be used, just like any other tool for portions of the inspection process, as determined by the inspector at his/her sole discretion and is always “limited in nature” as part of a home inspection and not to be construed as a full or complete thermal scan and report. Typically, our company scans the electrical panel, outlets, and ceilings under bathrooms, areas where plumbing is running down the walls, or areas the inspector deems problematic. This scan is not a full house thermal scan.
