I don't use it. As I understand the equipment, it takes a good deal of time and expertise to interpret the images in meaningful way. My impression is that a home inspector who thinks he can snap some pics and quickly reveal otherwise invisible problems is in for a $10,000 disappointment.

On the other hand, I think the technology is nothing short of astonishing. A well trained and equipped thermographer can save a building owner big bucks.

To incorporate it into a home inspection would probably double the time and triple the cost of the inspection.
