Thermal Imaging for Home Insp ections

Our board member, Joe Konopacki, will present this month's topic.

While a typical pre-purchase home inspection requires a thorough visual inspection, we all know the value added by using tools - from flashlights & outlet testers to moisture meters and now... thermal imaging cameras.

We will discuss the technology that makes infrared cameras work and the features that will best serve you in the field. You will learn about the useful applications of this technology to help you find and diagnose issues in homes. Joe will help you unders
tand the abilities, limitations and usefulness of this increasingly affordable technology. Digital cameras have changed the way we report our findings - digital thermal imaging is the next step.

Joe also became a certified Building Analyst and Envelope Professional through the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and a HERS Rater through the Residential Energy Survey Network (RESNET). He has worked with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to provide BPI training in Illinois and established Insight as a BPI training affiliate, with Joe as lead instructor. Joe has presented on building science topics at industry conferences, for professional groups and homeowners. He advocates for considering all of a building's systems and how they interact.
