In my area there is only ONE inspection firm offering Thermal Imaging that I know of. I would expect that if someone else did, that they would advertise the hell out of that!
So only ONE that I know of and they will do a complete home inspection for $260 and if you add Thermal Imaging they add $30. Is that low?
I was figuring that you could demand a higher fee then that for adding TI bacause of all the benefits you would get with it.
I had another inspector tell me that he doesn’t do it because the Utility company;s do it for free to optimize your energy efficiency. But that is just for energy efficiency. TI does so much more then that.
As a one man operation, would it be beneficial to me to offer TI, of course after getting certified, since only one other offers it?
They also don’t have pricing for ONLY TI inspections. Isn’t this a hot area to get into! To offer TI separate as well as combined with a reg. inspection?
Or am I missing something here? Maybe I have not put enough thought into this.
Would love to here some thoughts on this.
