Modern Building Inspection Tools

JimsBuildingInspectionsBuilding inspection has been very important for both tenant and landlords to ensure safety and reliability of an establishment. Because of this, more and more devices have been created to make inspections better and more accurate. To know more, below are some of the modern building inspection tools experts use.

AFCI/GFCI Tester

AFCI/GFCI tester allows you to test any outlet you might see. The dual AFCI/GFCI tester also tests both 120-volt and 240-volt receptacles.

Infrared (IR) Thermometer or Camera

Infrared (IR) Thermometer or Camera shows temperature variations over a large surface area. Unexpected heat variations can be indicators of air leakage, excess moisture, heat loss, or insufficient insulation.

Moisture Meters

A moisture meter can tell you where there is excess moisture. As of now, there are two basic types of moisture meters: pin-style and pinless. A pin-style meter inserts two little pins into the material and runs an electric current between them. On the other hand, a pinless meter has the advantage of not requiring any physical intrusion into the building material and it uses a larger scanning area.

Carbon Monoxide Analyzer

A carbon monoxide detector or alarm tests for the noxious gas over time and should be present in a house or building, just like a smoke alarm to ensure the safety of air in your establishment.
