Thermography inspections for things like water leaks and water intrusion have become super popular in Santa Clarita. What’s more, most home inspectors and plumbers now carry these cameras daily.

To be level III certified to not just operate an infrared camera but as an instructor is a whole other story.
Thermography is more science than anything else. Indeed, when using this type of technology the operator must know how to read the images produced. Not just looking for purple or orange… but understand the entirety of the thermogram. Individuals who choose to use thermography must also know that it’s simply just a tool. The use of other testing equipment is necessary when using a thermal camera.
