How much is the invisible costing you?
Checking for roof leaks
To check for evidence of roof leaks, the infrared inspection should be done about two hours after sunset. After sunset is when the air temperature is cooling but the temperature of the roofing system remains warm. This will allow for the required temperature differential (the home inspection is not conducted after sunset).
To conduct an accurate electrical thermal inspection, the circuits should be under load for several hours prior to the evaluation.
