THERMAL IMAGING RESIDENTIAL INSPECTION AGREEMENT
This is an addendum to the Residential Inspection Agreement regarding the inspection at:
_______________________________________________________________________.
Thermal   imaging   is   a   technology   that   allows   the   PRO1   CERTIFIED   INSPECTOR   to   show   you   things   about   a
building   that   no   one   can   show   you   using   other   inspection   methods.   Thermal   imaging   produces   images   of   invisible
heat   energy   emitted   from   objects   and   systems   in   the   building,   and   allows   us   to   measure   it.   Thermal   imaging   helps
to   diagnose   the   problem   rather   than   merely   identify   symptoms,   and   can   sometimes,   but   not   always,   identify   and
document:   electrical   faults   before   they   cause   a   fire;   overloaded   and   undersized   circuits;   circuit   breakers   in   need   of
immediate   replacement;   missing,   damaged,   and/or   wet   insulation;   heat   loss   and   air   infiltration   in   walls,   ceilings,
floors,   windows   and   doors;   water   and   moisture   intrusion   that   could   lead   to   mold;   possible   pest   infestation;   hidden
roof   leaks   before   they   cause   serious   damage;   air-conditioner   compressor   leaks;   under-fastening   and/or   missing
framing   members;   structural   defects;   broken   seals   in   double-pane   windows;   energy   loss   and   efficiency;   dangerous
flue   leaks;   damaged   and/or   malfunctioning   radiant   heating   systems;   unknown   plumbing   leaks;   and   overheated
equipment.   These   color   images   can   then   be   included   in   the   inspection   report,   providing   supporting   documentation
to the report. A picture is worth a thousand words.
1.    CLIENT    requests    and    authorizes    INSPECTOR    to    perform    a    thermal    imaging    scan    on    the    structure    at
__________________________________   for   the   following   purposes:     ___________________________________.  
The   fee   for   this   additional   service   will   be   $_____________,   all   of   which   is   due   prior   to   delivery   of   the   thermal
images.
2.   INSPECTOR’s   liability   for   any   damages   allegedly   arising   out   of   any   aspect   of   the   thermal-imaging   service   shall
be   limited   to   the   additional   amount   paid   for   the   thermal-imaging   scan.     CLIENT   voluntarily   waives   any   claim   for
consequential, exemplary or incidental damages to the fullest extent allowed by law.
3. The   thermal-imaging   scan   will   be   limited   in   scope   to   the   equipment   used   by   INSPECTOR.   The   inspection   will   be
a   non-invasive   and   non-destructive   examination   of   the   visible,   safe   and   readily   accessible   portions   of   the   interior
and/or   exterior   of   the   structure   for   atypical   temperature/thermal   variations.     NO   OTHER   WARRANTIES   OF   ANY
KIND,   EXPRESS   OR   IMPLIED,   INCLUDING,   BUT   not   LIMITED   TO,   WARRANTIES   REGARDING   FUTURE   USE,
HABITABILITY,    OPERABILITY,    SUITABILITY    OR    MERCHANTABILITY,    WITH    RESPECT    TO    THE    SUBJECT
PROPERTY, ARE PROVIDED.
4.   Thermal   imaging   services   do   not   include   any   inspections,   examinations,   testing   or   evaluations   for   harmful,
dangerous   or   toxic   substances,   materials   or   environmental   hazards,   including,   but   not   limited   to:   mold;   bio-aerosols;
radon;   lead;   asbestos;   non-biological   airborne   particulates;   contaminants;   petroleum   products;   petrochemicals;
radioactive    materials;    electromagnetic    radiation;    or    plant,    animal    or    insect    secretions    or    excretions.       Infrared
cameras   are   not   moisture   meters   but   can   aid   in   identifying   areas   that   warrant   further   investigation.     If   INSPECTOR
offers   any   information   or   opinions   about   any   of   the   foregoing,   this   information   shall   be   deemed   to   be   informational
only   and   supplied   as   a   courtesy   to   the   CLIENT,   and   shall   not   be   deemed   to   be   an   amendment   to   this Addendum   or
the Residential Inspection Agreement.
5.   CLIENT   agrees   to   indemnify   and   hold   harmless   INSPECTOR,   its   agents,   employees   and   inspectors   for   the
presence   of   any   harmful,   dangerous   or   toxic   substances   or   materials,   or   environmental   hazards,   including,   but   not
limited   to,   those   listed   in   Part   4   of   this   addendum,   as   well   as   for   any   and   all   damages   and   liability   for   any   mitigation,
construction, or any other costs associated with the presence of any such hazards, substances or materials.
6.   If   CLIENT   desires   to   obtain   information   regarding   the   presence   of   any   harmful,   dangerous   or   toxic   substances,
materials   or   environmental   hazards,   including,   but   not   limited   to,   those   listed   in   Part   4   of   this   addendum,   it   is   solely
the   responsibility   of   the   CLIENT   to   contact   and   engage   the   services   of   qualified   individuals   or   companies   that
specialize in the areas of specific interest or concern.
7. All of the other terms of the Residential Inspection Agreement are incorporated herein by reference.
We   contract   with   a   third   party   to   store   certain   information   online,   such   as   our   inspection   reports,   and   the   identity   of
our   clients.     In   signing   our Agreement,   you   give   us   permission   to   do   so.     We   will   not   sell   your   personally   identifying
information.     It   is   the   duty   of   the   third   party   we   contract   with   to   keep   your   information   secure.     We   are   not   liable   for
any   misuse   of   that   information   or   their   failure   to   safeguard   it.     In   that   event,   your   sole   remedy   is   against   that   third
party.
I   have   carefully   read   the   foregoing   and   I   understand,   accept   and   agree   with   all   of   the   terms   and   conditions   of   this
Addendum.
