Thermal Imaging Simplified?  To keep it simple, Thermal Imaging is the viewing and recording actual surface temperatures, signatures, and anomalies observed at surfaces such as walls, ceilings, floors, pipes, ducts, etc.  It is easier to think of Thermal Imaging as a thermometer with a TV screen attached. The surface temperature is translated into a visual image. Using a high resolution thermal imager (or camera), we can observe and interpret surface temperatures to help determine what is or may be occurring in areas we can’t readily view without destructive evaluations.  All objects emit energy in the form of heat.  Thermal imaging allows us to ‘see’ this energy and interpret our findings or the anomalies observed. Because everything has a surface temperature, infrared thermal imaging technology allows us to ‘see’ the temperature of those surfaces. The images seen are then interpreted and further investigated.  As human beings, we are limited to seeing light only in the visible light spectrumcalled white light. This is the light that bounces off everyday objects whether the light is being emitted by our sun or an artificial source such as a light bulb. The infrared spectrum is otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Without assistance from […]

Inspection Standards
ASTM Inspection Standards

The Commercial Building inspector conducts all inspections based on the following  Inspection Standards: National Association of Commercial Building Inspectors (NACBI) Code of Ethics Standards of Practice ASTM E2018 – 08 Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process No PCA can wholly eliminate the uncertainty regarding the presence of physical deficiencies and the performance of a subject property’s building systems. Preparation of a PCR in accordance with this guide is intended to reduce, but not eliminate, the uncertainty regarding the potential for component or system failure and to reduce the potential that such component or system may not be initially observed. This guide also recognizes the inherent subjective nature of a consultant’s opinions as to such issues as workmanship, quality of original installation, and estimating the RUL of any given component or system. The guide recognizes a consultant’s suggested remedy may be determined under time constraints, formed without the aid of engineering calculations, testing, exploratory probing, the removal or relocation of materials, design, or other technically exhaustive means. Furthermore, there may be other alternative or more appropriate schemes or methods to remedy a physical deficiency. The consultant’s opinions generally are formed without detailed knowledge from those familiar with the component’s or system’s performance. Not Technically Exhaustive—Appropriate due diligence according to this guide is not to be construed as technically exhaustive. There is a point at which the cost of information obtained or the time required to conduct the PCA and prepare the PCR may outweigh the usefulness […]
