I purchased a infrared camera after Christmas and took the Level 1 class in January. I am now in the process of working on my contracts, advertising, etc. I am still trying to decide how far I want to go and with what part. I am a licensed home inspector but I think I would rather push the camera than the inspections. I have also thought about just doing the camera and talking with other HI to help supplement their business. That way it is really no competition.
To get a little more idea, my utility provider is coming to my house on Monday to do a energy survey. I figured what can it hurt? Plus I can get a little more idea of what it all entails. Do I want to just try and do the camera? Or do I want to get the blower door and do the whole thing? Those are the kind of questions that I am still working on right now.
I am also a general contractor and I work around a lot of old buildings. I am also in a major triangle of cities of a couple of million people.
