Thermal Energy Audits
in Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton & beyond!

A thermal imaging inspection is a high-tech approach to imaging that goes well beyond a routine visual inspection. With building inspections, a thermal imaging inspection can identify and highlight performance deficiencies with great accuracy. Using an infrared camera, a qualified technician can detect the smallest inconsistencies in surface temperatures, thus identifying problem areas.

Inch by Inch Inspections provides professional, certified home energy audits for your new home or property. An energy audit helps homeowners and commercial property owners maximize energy efficiency and decrease utility costs.

The Comprehensive Home Energy Audit Includes:

  • Evaluation of Health and Safety of Combustion Heating Appliances
  • Worst Case spillage and draft test for naturally vented combustion appliancesinfrared thermal imaging audit toronto gta
  • Measurement of Ambient CO
  • Evaluation of Efficiency of Combustion Appliances
  • Evaluation of CO levels of Dryer and Gas Stove
  • Air Leakage Testing with Infrared Thermal Imaging
  • Lighting Evaluation
  • Evaluation of Thermal Envelope (Insulation)

Once a thermal imaging inspection has been performed, various images are documented so that performance irregularities can be assessed and evaluated. This is of great value to a property owner when a building is being inspected for sale, or when being prepared for renovation. In fact, thermal imaging inspection can be of benefit for both residential and commercial properties.

In general, building materials emit infrared energy depending on composition. Some materials emit infrared energy very well, while others emit none. Here, an infrared camera can detect all types of performance anomalies in a building structure (most of them not visible to the naked eye). A professional thermal imaging inspection will unveil a host of issues (both good and bad).  

Like any technology, thermal imaging requires skill and experience. A proficient technician will understand the principles of infrared energy and heat transfer, and will be able to professionally analyze infrared images. As such, building problems related to heat distribution, air movement, and moisture intrusion can be effectively diagnosed, and practical remedies can be offered.

Within the framework of a home inspection, thermal imaging can detect and identify numerous deficiencies in a building envelope. The important thing, however, is accurate interpretation. And this is where a trained and qualified professional is essential – both for diagnosis and assessment.

Whether it’s a residential or commercial building, thermal imaging will uncover thermal imaging tool energy efficiency heat leakagecountless issues.  

  • moisture pockets located behind walls
  • sources and scope of building air leakage   
  • missing or damaged areas of insulation  
  • general mechanical/electrical problems
  • concerns with sealed windows and doors
  • issues with heating and air conditioning

Thermal imaging in Toronto can be very valuable when selling a property, buying a property, or getting ready to renovate. The long term benefits will make the short term investment well worthwhile.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Hiring a construction contractor to renovate my house for the first time, I was not familiar with any of the DSS-related requirements.  So, it was quite reassuring to find someone like Tony who is trustworthy and knowledgeable. I also needed a quick turnaround for the completed DSS report and Tony delivered (on time, as promised).  In short, Tony was great to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime.   

Richard, Toronto

Tony did an excellent job with inspecting the house. He was very knowledgable in his field and thorough with his inspection. He carefully and patiently looked at both the exterior and interior of the building. He pointed out the deficiencies, what the risks are and how to rectify them. He answered all of our questions and made sure that we understood them. He offered his expertise and help if we needed.

Mandan

I have heard a lot of stories about home inspection but I could honestly say that I had a great experience. I would like to thank Tony from Inch by Inch Home Inspection for the great experience. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Tony through my realtor. I want to thank Tony for taking the time to answer any questions and any concerns I had about my home inspection.

Teresa

Tony Muscat of Inch by Inch Inspections is extremely professional, caring and a prompt individual, when he heard we may have a mould problem he came immediately. Tony was worried with the level of mould that was contained in this recent purchased older home and he walked me through the process of getting rid of the mould and what dangers were involved. He paid the best attention to us, while we went through this horrible ordeal. The fact that impressed me the most was his vast amount of knowledge, and the dangers of each mould which there are many. He is extremely professional and equipped to handle any job. I would recommend Inch by Inch, (Tony) to anyone he is a concerned and serious individual, that cares about your family!!!!!!!
