If you were to rank the rooms in your home where you and your family spend the most time, the attic would likely not be ranked very high on that list, if it’s even on it at all. In fact, it’s probably safe to say that most homeowners spend very little, if any, time in their attic on a regular basis. Because of that, it can be tough to notice when issues start to happen up there. Fortunately, there’s an easier way to help identify attic issues than crawling up into that dark dusty place.
Thermal imaging is a very useful tool for many things, and identifying attic issues is one of them. For example, recessed lighting is very popular these days, but if it’s installed incorrectly, (too close to insulation, for example) it can be a fire hire hazard. Thermal imaging can help you identify the hot spots caused by overheating recessed lighting in your attic.
