What is thermal image scanning?

Thermal scanning is a non-intrusive method of locating potential problems in the home that you may be about to purchase. Discoveries made by thermal scanning may significantly affect your decision to purchase the property.

Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material has a unique thermal signature. When moisture, heat, or cold are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. With the help of an infrared  camera, we can see many things that simply are not detectable to the naked eye.

Cold areas behind walls, floors, or ceilings can indicate the presence of moisture, or lack of insulation and the infrared camera helps us diagnose these problems easily. Thermal imaging also easily detects overheating circuits, fuses, or circuit breakers. In some cases, flat roof leaks, or leakage under, or behind plumbing fixtures can also be found.

Featured throughout our website are thermal photos taken by our infrared camera, identifying significant problems found behind the walls.

Here are some actual photos of the camera in action:

Charitable Giving

We are very involved with the community and are proud of the work we do. A portion of every B4U Buy inspection supports the Canadian Cancer Society's Camp Goodtimes, and helps provide the types of childhood memories that most of us take for granted. In addition, we are devoted to creating a fabulous Christmas light display, raising several thousand dollars in donations annually for the Canadian Cancer Society.
