What does Thermal Imaging bring to a home inspection?
|A breaker that is slightly warm, with a wire that is warm only in the first few inches. This can be a sign that the wire is damaged, and should be evaluated by an electrician.|
One of the frequent electrical issues I've been seeing is hot receptacles. If an electric outlet has nothing plugged into it, it shouldn't be hotter than the surrounding area (GFCI outlets are an exception).
|This receptacle was so warm that you could actually see where the wires were overheating behind the drywall (top left of the receptacle).|
|Missing insulation in the stairwell to the attic. The darker lines are caused by the framing.|
