Thermal Imaging Service
Contrary to popular belief, thermal imaging does not see through walls nor does it emit radiation. Simply stated, thermal imaging picks up the radiation (heat) emitted by an object. It is rare that two different objects emit the same infrared radiation and that helps the thermal camera pick up the distinctive objects.
Thermal imaging can help spot:
- Moisture intrusion – This works because moisture changes the thermal mass of the objects it penetrates. This means that if there is a leak in a wall or floor, this location will emit a different heat trace then the surrounding area which will be spotted by the thermal camera.
- Insulation – Most attics have insulation exposed to the naked eye, however insulation behind walls is a different story. With thermal imaging, we can detect the difference in temperatures in sections of walls where no insulation exists very easily. No need to rip out walls or flooring to try and find the location of the defect.
- Electrical – When branch circuit wiring (copper, aluminum, etc.) carry loads, they become energized and heated. With thermal imaging, it becomes easy to spot electrical areas that may be of concern. These will show up as hot receptacles in wall or wires in an electrical panel.
- Air Leakage – Whether in the winter or summer seasons, thermal imaging can play a crucial role in detecting locations for significant air leakage. Once the location is found, the problem remedied, the energy savings costs increase further depicting the value of having thermal imaging in a home inspection.

Alexander was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in the inspection of my house. He did a very thorough job and caught things that I would have never noticed. He sat down and explained the Inspection Report with me and was very knowledgeable at his job. I would fully recommend Alexander's services to anyone who is looking for a quality home inspector. I will be sure to let my friends and family know about him if they need a home inspector
I was able to learn lots from my home inspection with Alex, even though I consider myself a jack of all trades-master of none. He was thorough and pleasant to deal with. I followed him through the inspection and he talked me through everything he was looking at, and why. He answered all my questions and expanded on things I didn't even think to ask.
Alex is friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. He provided outstanding customer service and also worked with us to find time in our busy schedule. Alex was courteous and insightful and he provided a detailed list of things that need work. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and made us feel really comfortable. He then encouraged us to contact him anytime with any more questions or concerns we may have. It's an understatement to say that we were happy with his services and would most definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reputable home inspector.
Due to my life style which keeps me away from home more than I like, I found that Alex had lots of great ideas to lower my energy bills while I'm away while at the same time making me feel more comfortable growing my biggest investment. His fantastic and helpful attitude made all the difference to me creating this review. In my opinion if you want this work done professionally and also to work within your schedule you will find no one better suited.
I’ve had Certa inspect 2 of my properties, the inspections were very thorough. Also the rate was more appropriate than other quotes that were given to me. I liked the knowledge of the inspector and the advice that he gave me about my houses.
As a young woman with little experience in maintaining an older home, Alex took the time to educate me in ways to maintain the home and it's componants. He also explained the importance of keeping up with simple repairs which could save a homeowner lots of money in the long run.
My brother and I bought a house earlier this year. Being a foreclosure, we had no inspection done on the house prior to buying it. We had Alex come in and do a full scale inspection to find some things we might have missed. Alex was very thorough and polite throughout the whole process. We were very happy with his inspection and would recommend him to anyone else!
Our company called Alexander with Certa Property Inspections and he was able to go and assess our unit the same day after we had a tenant complain of mold. His recommendations were appreciated and explained thoroughly. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. The results were back within a few days. We would definitely recommend Certa to anyone else.
I’m impressed by the prompt service Alex provides! He has significantly helped me improve the saleability of a property listing by eliminating smoke odors through the use of his Ozone Machine. Alex stands behind the services he provides and offers competitive home inspection rates. I highly recommend him!
We had a unit that had been heavily smoked in for years, the tobacco odor was so strong that it made your lungs hurt to breathe in there for more than a few minutes. Certa brought in the Ozone machine for the weekend and we were absolutely amazed with the results. You honestly could not even tell their were smokers in there other than the appearance. We will definitely be using them again!
