Here’s great news for all our clients! Clarion now uses infrared cameras in all our home inspections – at no extra cost to you!

The use of infrared cameras is something that is new and exciting in the home inspection industry. It involves using sensitive cameras to detect differences in the surface temperatures of the various components of a home.

It requires training and practice, but an experienced home inspector can use this information to detect problems such as leaks and moisture, moulds and insulation problems, as well as electrical issues that may be hidden to the naked eye.

Until these cameras became available a few years ago, home inspectors could only make an educated guess about conditions behind the walls and ceilings in a home. An infrared camera is a tool that helps us “see” many problems that were often missed during home inspections in the past.

Surprisingly, not many other home inspection companies have integrated this technology into their business – possibly because of the high purchase costs of thermal imagers and extra training required to operate them.

At Clarion Home Inspections, we use infrared cameras in all our home inspections – at no extra cost to you. All of our competitors that have infrared cameras charge an extra fee for using these tools.

We find that strange.

Our philosophy is that our clients should be given the best service possible for the price they pay. What’s the point of having cutting edge technology if it’s not going to be used?

Is Your Home a Radon Risk

Dangerous levels of radon have been detected in homes in all regions of the country; in some parts of Southern B.C., as many as 10 % of the homes tested have unsafe amounts of radon gas. In some confined spaces – like basements and crawlspaces– radon can accumulate to relatively high levels and become a health hazard. Clarion Home Inspections recommends that all home purchases should include a radon test before the home is occuppied.

How Safe Are Your Appliances

If you're like most people, you probably have heard something about the recent safety recalls involving some of the big car manufacturers, but you may not be aware that the makers of the appliances in your home have had similar troubles, only on a far greater scale. We all like to think of the appliances in our homes as being safe, but, the fact is, there have been over 20 million product recalls in North America in the past twenty years.
