How Much Does Thermal Imaging Cost?

Should I Hire an Inspection Company That Offers Thermal Imaging?

Yes. Once you see the advantages of thermal imaging in a Home Inspection, you’ll understand the value of it. A thermal inspection is our top-of-the-line inspection that goes beyond a standard visual evaluation and can uncover many surprises and hidden issues. It can identify hidden moisture, overheating electrical, missing insulation and more.

When Should I Have a Thermal Inspection Done?

We recommend IR Imaging if your home has any of the following:

  • Radiant Floor Heating
  • Vaulted/Cathedral Ceilings
  • Flat Roof
  • Deck Above Living Areas
  • Old electrical / plumbing
  • Prior / Past Leakage

We recommend thermal imaging for every home, however the above items are examples of higher-risk situations.

How Much Does a Thermal Inspection Cost?

We charge for Thermal Imaging as an add-on to our standard inspections. Our add-on rates are:based on the property size, and range from $45 to $150.

Other inspection companies will only offer thermal inspections, and their prices are generally quite high, and their inspections lengthy. We like to give the customer the option – this way we can accommodate any budget or schedule.
