“Seeing” and “Hearing” Through Walls
Infrared empowers home inspectors to detect hidden problems that may otherwise go undetected in an ordinary inspection. From concealed leaks and moisture intrusion to faulty wiring, energy loss and termite infestations, infrared can help expose previously inaccessible areas of the house for a more detailed, accurate and comprehensive inspection.
Unfortunately, not all infrared cameras are created equal, and good, comprehensive training can be difficult to find. Kaplan in partnership with HomeSafe Inspection, Inc. provides complete thermography training and discusses equipment options for the home inspection profession.
Using technologies developed by infrared home inspection pioneer HomeSafe Inspection, this 6-hour course provides a general introduction to infrared as a powerful new inspection tool for your arsenal. You will learn what to look for in a good IR camera for home inspections. You will learn the advantages of combining infrared inspection techniques with HomeSafe’s powerful acoustic (listening) sensors to, in effect, “see” and “hear” through a house’s walls, floors and ceilings. And you will learn how IR can help increase your sales and grow your business.
