Why now & Why Home Inspectors?

Home inspection businesses can be adversely affected by downturns in the economy, recessions, and fluctuating interest rates. However, expanding your services, such as with infrared inspections, can help you weather the ups and downs of the economy. By offering thermal imaging, you’ll be able to increase your revenue with each home inspection.

Most home inspectors already have an advanced understanding of building construction, and infrared thermography is mostly about buildings. Therefore, home inspectors are the perfect candidates for becoming infrared thermographers of buildings. Infrared inspections are a valuable and lucrative add-on service for any home inspection business.

UI’s Vice-President and The HomeInspectIR™ Chief Instructor, Peter Hopkins is a Level III Certified Infrared Thermographer and has been a home inspector since1996, having personally performed over 7000 property inspections. This true understanding of the mindset and experience of a home inspector allows him to relate to their business. “Home Inspectors are the perfect candidate for thermography because they already understand construction. However there are restraints of the profession which limit what they actually say or could say on an inspection. Having a thermal imager allows Home Inspectors to communicate with assurance, knowing where the problem is rather than guessing. Infrared will allow them to capture additional revenue.” states Mr. Hopkins.
