Inspection Tools / Equipment
Although Home inspectors are actually required to use only a few types of equipment like ladder, flashlight; All Season Inspection use:
EYE-STICK OR DRONE FOR ROOF INSPECTION
Eye–Stick enables inspection of extreme heights and dangerous situations from a safe distance. We’ll be able to record, save and evaluate roofs, gutters, attics, crawl spaces, and more without ladders or safety concerns with the Eye–Stick wireless video recorder/monitor.
Drones are multi-purpose gadgets being used in different fields and scenarios. One of the scenarios is home and roof inspections.
Electrical tester: This type of tester is widely used and indicates the more common defects. Like GFCI/AFCI Tester, Voltage Indicator.
Moisture meters are used to measure the percentage of water/ moisture in a given substance Moisture Meters come in two types: search and measure. Using the meter in search mode, inspectors can find elevated moisture levels hidden behind a variety of materials, such as tile and vinyl.
CO Detector: Carbon monoxide (CO) is a tasteless, odorless, toxic gas produced by combustion appliances, such as water heaters, furnaces, and boilers. CO can accumulate in the human body over time to a point at which it can be fatal. Excessive levels can be produced when combustion appliances operate inefficiently and need servicing or when they are improperly vented. Analyzers measure CO levels and give results in parts per million (PPM).
INFRARED (IR) CAMERAS
Infrared (IR) cameras form images using infrared radiation in a manner similar to the way a conventional camera forms images using visible light. Different colors correspond to different temperatures, so an inspector is able to identify areas that are abnormally hot or cold.
ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD TESTER
An EMF meter is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic fields (abbreviated as EMF). Most meters measure the electromagnetic radiation flux density (DC fields) or the change in an electromagnetic field over time (AC fields), essentially the same as a radio antenna, but with quite different detection characteristics.
Low–E glass is a vital component of energy-efficient windows. The Low-E Coating Detector is designed to detect Low–Emissivity coatings on single and double glazed units and indicate on which surface it is present.
