Thermal Inspection Solutions
We are energy audit inspectors providing infrared camera and blower door tests to the Greater Houston area. As energy costs continue to rise, it has become extremely important to provide thermal solutions for your home that will result in energy savings for both cooling and heating. The fact is that most homes have areas where conditioned air, whether warmed or cooled, escapes causing air conditioning and heating systems to work longer and harder in order to maintain a desirable environment. This results in larger energy costs and shorter equipment life. It would be wise to consider a home energy audit to determine how these costs can be minimized. It would be a mistake to think this is a problem in older homes only. Many inspections performed on newly constructed homes have revealed significant energy losses due to poor or inadequate installation of appliances and windows as well as construction.
Thermal Inspection – Infrared Thermal Imaging and Blower Door Tests
The Energy Audit process is approached in two distinct ways; (1) determining areas resulting in the loss of energy and (2) an assessment of the home’s environmental factors. A typical Home Energy Audit would involve an inspection of the entire home focusing on those areas which typically are responsible for energy loss and gain. This would include, in part, an inspection of the heating/cooling system, associated duct work, leakage around windows and doors, protrusions through the home’s exterior, attic ventilation and many other areas too numerous to list here. In addition, at every room in the home, we take a series of specific measurements such as Relative Humidity, Ambient Temperatures, Dew points, and Return and Supply Air differentials and perform an analysis of this data to arrive at a clear picture of your home’s environment. With the data obtained during the process, we can formulate a clear and concise report with recommendations that you can use to start saving energy and become more comfortable in your home. Of course we utilize special equipment for these measurements which includes the use of Infrared Thermal Image Scanning and other vital Tools and Methods.
Make My Home More Energy Efficient
If you think your energy bills are high or have experienced a significant increase in your energy costs or remain generally uncomfortable in your home, please contact us so that we may discuss your situation and set up an audit inspection. You will receive a clearly written report with recommendations prioritized according to those issues having the greatest impact and a free annotated photo album of all deficiencies found during the audit. Initial phone consultations are free.

With Bryon you get a team of inspectors who are very thorough and provide you reports with detailed commentary, pictures and code information. We saved a lot of money by hiring Bryon before we closed on our home. It's a wise investment.
Bryon and his team did an outstanding job. He took time going over the report stressing out what needs to be addressed right away. We are very pleased and will use his service again.. Will recommend to others! Nara and Jerry
Bryon and his crew were pretty unbelievable. In entering this process, I wanted nothing more than to have someone as elaborate and attentive to detail as Bryon was. Since this was my first time purchasing a home, I had no clue on what to look for in a finished house or what to ask about during my walk through. Bryon was extremely helpful in this process because when he found issues, he didn't just snap detailed photos of them, but he made sure to EDUCATE me on what he was looking at and why it was important that the builders fixed the issue at hand. I wanted to make sure I was getting every dollars worth that I was investing in the house and that the builders weren't cutting any corners just to get me to close. Bryon made me feel very comfortable and confident that he was on MY side and that he and his crew were going to do everything in their power to make sure the house was done RIGHT. Bryon and his crew left nothing off the list. I received an 83 page report with about 150+ pictures. Some may think this is excessive, but when you are preparing yourself to make one of the biggest purchases and investments of your life, I would want and expect nothing less. Thank you Bryon and your wonderful crew for your excellent customer service and support. I will NEVER EVER use anyone else AND I would recommend everyone to Bryon and his highly professional crew. Needless to say I had Bryon back for a re-inspection and if I ever need another inspection or any home advice whatsoever, I NOW know where to go.
Excellent, very experienced & professional.
High Quality, Thorough and Professional Inspector
This is the 2nd new construction home I have ask Bryon to inspect. I appreciate his thoroughness and how he takes the time to explain issues and presents resolutions. He really goes the extra mile by putting pictures in the report to ensure the customer knows what they are looking at. He goes above and beyond to educate you on how things should be and improvements that can be made. I needed my inspection turnaround fairly quickly and Bryon went out of his way to make sure that I received it short notice. Purchasing a home is a big investment, Bryon's inspection gave me assurance I was making the right choice. He is worth every penny and I would strongly recommend him. Thanks again Bryon! Best, Pree
Prompt and Professional
I have dealt with many inspectors in the past and Bryon Palfrey is bar none the best. He and his team were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I felt that they were very thorough and patient with any questions that I had and explained everything to me in great detail. Bryon is a true professional and his knowledge and customer service is exceptional. I will use his services in the future for any inspection needs. His report was very detailed and price is fair.
A Five Star Rating is Not Enough!
I was very pleased with the level of service from Bryon A. Parffrey Inspector, LLC. Bryon and his team (including a licensed master electrician, a licensed WDI inspector, and an aerial drone pilot) provided the most through 250 page report my real estate agent has ever seen in her 20+ years of experience. My realtor assumed that I paid more than double the amount for Bryon and his team of experts. I received a home inspection package discount including thermal analysis, WDI inspection, and an aerial drone inspection (very highly recommended). Bryon went out of his way to accommodate my option period deadline when nobody else would. In addition, Bryon provided the inspection report the following day! This was the best experience I have ever had with any contractor. Thanks Bryon !!! ******
Quality service very friendly and well explained inspection
Great experience well explained and very detailed. Thanks again
High Quality Home Inspection with Professional Service
Bryon and his team provided excellent service. They were very professional and were very knowledgeable. Bryon was able to answer questions during the inspection and not just at the end like other inspectors. Bryon also pointed things out to me during the inspection as he was inspecting. I highly recommend Bryon A. Parffrey Inspector, LLC.
High Quality Home Inspection
Bryon was very helpful and critical in the deciding whether or not to buy a new home. With his help we were given the information that we needed in order to make the right decision for us. His report was thorough and well done with many pictures backing up his findings and recommendations and all done for a great price. Thank you Bryon and company for helping us make the right decision. I highly recommend Bryon for he is one of the best in the business.
Looking for the Best, you've found him!
When looking for an inspector there are various things to consider. Bryon makes inspecting a home a breeze. He is well rounded and able to assist in all home inspecting matters. I highly recommend him and encourage anyone to use him. FYI, I have used him for the last three homes I have purchased.
Finding the right inspector is no small task. Getting one with an in depth knowledge of the work is even harder. With thousands to choose from, sometimes one just relies on good reviews from customers. Bryon and his crew did a fantastic job with our house inspection. They were very thorough and meticulous and inspected our house like it was thier own. They provided a 174 page comprehensive report filled with pictures that I'm sure our builder is going to hate :). I highly recommend this company!!
Excellent inspection, extremely knowledgeable
Bryon was a champion for us (buyers) when inspecting the home under contract. He was able to identify several material items that we could not have identified on our own. He was curteous, kind, efficient and very thorough.
Inspection for new built
Bryon Parffrey and his team did an outstanding job! First of all, inspection took not more than 1 hour because he brought whole team with him Secondly, we had full report on the same day in our inbox And lastly, after showing report to the seller, Bryon was kind enough to take time to go over vital points on the report, stressing out what needs to be addressed right away. We were impressed! Nara and Jerry

EXCEPTIONAL AND EXCELLENT QUALITY SERVICE
In February 2016, while seeking for high quality and honest building inspectors that will not just perform a quick checklist review inspection but provide high quality inspection, Bryon A. Parffrey was selected as our Inspector based on his great record. Being our first time dealing with him, I was skeptical but at the completion of his evaluation/ assessment of the premises, we were so pleased with his report and the findings including the method of presentation. Bryon presented the findings in a very professional format; the report was very thorough and comprehensively covered all the critical and important information that aided us to make informed decisions which also helped us to save a lot of money. Bryon’s report was presented in both textual format and pictorial format specified all the findings with clear images of the issues and the report was self-explanatory. We were extremely happy that Bryon represented our interest very well and glad that we selected him as our Inspector. Thank you, Bryon for the exceptional inspection report.
Absolutely wonderful. They were so friendly and paid attention to details. They did a house inspection on my new home and they really put my mind at ease. They allowed me to tag along as they worked and were patient and thorough in explaining what they were doing, what they were seeing and any next steps that needed to be taken. They treated me respectfully, which I greatly appreciated and have had problems with in the past in regard to other businesses I've worked with. They were very orderly and got back to me with the report even ahead of schedule. All in all, a great experience and I would recommend them over and over again.
I cannot say enough good things about Bryon and his crew. Bryon is an excellent communicator, whether it be setting an appointment or explaining a facet of the inspection process, he makes sure you are informed. His attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations, it was actually surprising how quickly he was able to work and how thorough his work was. I will be recommending Bryon to all of my clients from here on out.
AWESOME EXPERIENCE START TO FINISH
I contacted Bryon via phone and he took my call. I explained my situation and he was very helpful and professionual. He tried to save me money by telling me how I could do a few things to find out what I needed to know. The next day I decided I needed a professional like Bryon to confirm my position and dispute I was having with a builder. He sent someone out and the Inspectior with just visual inspection cleared that I was at no way at fault. After his inspection I was provided with a report with pictures that clearly outlined his findings. I am happy to say this is on of the best customer service oriented companies I have dealt with. Today, customer service doesn't seem that important to companies but it is with this company! HIghly Receommend! I will absolutely call this company again for any of the services the provide.
Thorough, Professional, and Fast
Thank you for your thorough inspection of our property we are intending to purchase. Report and photos have been exteremly helpful when determining immediate issues that need to be taken care of. This inspection has given us the piece of mind we were looking for.
Very professional,experienced & polite . Immediate response & quick action.
High quality inspection by a true professional
After searching long and hard to find an inspector for my new home I found Bryon. His wide range of experience provided me assurance that I was making a great choice. On the inspection day, I was not disappointed. Bryon showed up a walked me through the house explaining several key areas to the inspection and how things "should be". He was able to directly recall minimum and maximum tolerances on almost every area. Bryon told me that I would have the report in two days but ended up providing me the 180 page report (with pictures) in less than 24 hours. I would definitely recommend Bryon as your certified inspector if you are required or just looking for "peace of mind".
outstanding service, detailed inspection unlike any other
From the beginning, Bryon's communication was amazing. As a first time home buyer with so many questions, he explained in detailed every aspect of the inspection with so many pictures. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and a great pleasure to work with. Will definitely go to him for any inspection needs, highly recommend to anyone needing his services. Thank you, Bryon for all your help and look forward to doing future business!
Efficient and Prompt
They were thorough and available to answer any questions and give me recommendations... VERY PLEASED
First rate knowledge and experience that you can trust.
There is no one better in the business than Bryon Parffrey. He has every certification imaginable and is an excellent teacher with a great sense of humor. If you want the right answer to nearly any homebuilding question or you are in a tough situation and need an opinion that you can trust. He is the man.
Very Professional & Timely!!!
Bryon and his Team did a Excellent Job Inspecting Our potential New Location. The Report was timely, detailed and well organized. I would Highly Recommend Bryon and his Team for any size Commercial Building or Home. We will use Bryon for Our new locations in the future. Thank You Bryon. Much Appreciated!!!
Bryon, You did great. Thank you for meeting with us when we were in town, for your investment insights into the market and for your thorough evaluation of the building. We really appreciate your work.
Byron did a great job
Byron did a great job for us. We were from out of the area and he helped educate us on what to be concerned about. His report was very complete and very detailed. It was obvious he new what he was doing. Along with his team, they uncovered several significant problems with the property we were looking to purchase. He reviewed those with us and answered any questions we had. I would definitely use Bryon in the future.
Comment:Thanks!!! Great Job!!!
Thank you Bryan, you're awesome and have definitely given us some great information to make a better decision.
I had called 15 companies without finding a solution to my brick problem. In 3 minutes you were a God send. I help people like you did me but seldom I received it back. I want to thank you.
Home inspection - New Construction
I would like to express my wife's and I's gratitude to Bryon for his excellent job inspecting our new construction home. Bryon's inspection report was sufficiently detailed and actually got the builder to finally address many serious issues with the home improvements. One day after the report was submitted, the builder removed a large section of brick and re-leveled and squared eight windows. Additionally, >30 other home repairs were identified and were required to be fixed which the builder did based on Bryon's recommendations. Lastly, Bryon also provided a quality reference to a drywall contractor as this individual was needed due to bowed walls which the builder just couldn't fix after multiple attempts. We highly recommend Bryon and wish we had used his services before the final home walk (foundation and pre-drywall inspections) as he could have saved us time and stress dealing with our builder. One note I would like to add is that we used a semi-custom builder that charged ~$165 sq ft. and assumed they would build at a higher standard; however, we found out differently based on Bryon's inspection. Lesson learned = protect yourself by using his services or expect to be addressing home issues after closing.
"I used Mr. Parffrey for the first time on 03/09/2015 and he performed an AWESOME job with not only the home inspection and provided me with photos and explanation; but he did and EXCELLENT JOB with explaining the details to me. I would recommend Mr Parffrey for any home or commercial inspection."
"I'm a smarter buyer, now!"
I contacted a few inspectors and Bryon was the one that said "I am doing an inspection now, but would be happy to help you right after. Let me ask you afew questions..." Within 20 seconds I was confident that I was talking to an expert that LIKED doing thorough inspections. THAT is why I chose Bryon. He met me the same day and walked me through a super detailed inspection with a ton of pictures. He was so detailed with his review and specific in his explanation that I think I could be a good inspector myself. He TAUGHT me about the house I was buying. Before my closing, I feel like I have an intimate knowledge of my new home. I am also well equipped to negotiate with my builder. I'd like to say "I know a few inspectors that I'd recommend,' but I don't. I used to. Now, I only know ONE. After learning from Bryon, I'd only recommend him. He set a very high expectation for me and it is because he really likes what he does.
So thankful for Bryon!!!
I requested Bryon's expertise for a pre-drywall inspection on my new home. Not only did he provide me with a detailed report with pictures on the SAME DAY, but he took the time to explain every issue noted and the associated code. It was rainy morning and Bryon did not fail to take note of every issue associated with my new build including the interior and exterior structure. Bryon even made a path for me to walk through the muddy terrain so that I was sure not to fail or get dirty. Bryon is by far a very talented inspector and gentlemen. I will definitely utilize his services for my future inspection needs!
First Time Home Buyer
Bryon is very informative and willing to help. I don't know much about what needed to be inspected but Bryon had a detailed report with pictures assembled. I will recommend Bryon to all my friends. Thanks for all the help!!!
Great work, very thorough
I have used Bryon for two different homes now. A total of five inspections. His insight into energy efficiency and attention to detail are top-notch. As a result of his inspections, I have had an entire sub-floor replaced as well as a staircase by the builders. I would highly recommend using his service.
Great Experience/Great Information
Bryon and his team performed a wonderful job for the inspection I requested. He came prepared with a team of experts and they went through my warehouse and took a lot of pictures of items so we could reference back to them. The report is very thorough and detailed and as mentioned above you always had a picture to reference back to. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for an inspector for a small or large space. The space I had inspected was 90,000 sq. ft. so I was concerned about the scope of the job but Bryon did a wonderful job!
I would recommend Bryon to anybody. He did the inspection the very next day and is there for you when needed and answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. Bryon does a full and comprehensive job. You get your moneys worth with his inspection, and he happens to have a good sense of humor too! -:) Thank You Bryon, Mike
Home Inspection August 13, 2014
Me and my wife needed a home inspection done before moving into our constructed home, so we researched several home inspectors. When I ran across Bryon's information and credentials, I felt like he would be the right inspector to look at our future home. As soon as he arrived onsite with his crew, they were locked in on doing a complete and thorough inspection of me and my wife's new home. I really appreciated him for having a vast wealth of knowledge about inspecting the interior and exterior of houses. He provided us with easy to understand information in his final report, and he took tons of photos for reference. We were also able to use our home inspection report to get our builder to make the necessary corrections and repairs needed before closing on the house. Professional, courteous, and competent are some good words to sum up Bryon.I highly recommend him for any type of home inspection you may need!!!
Commercial Property Inspection in Houston, TX
Bryon and his team did a fantastic job! They were thorough and professional throughout the entire process. We were completely pleased with every aspect, from set up of appointment, actual inspection, delivery of report, and follow up. I will contact Bryon for all of my client's commercial and residential inspection needs. Thanks again, Esanet Benedict, Realtor.
Above and Beyond!
Bryon and his team were wonderful! They showed up on time and took their time checking every detail of your soon-to-be home. I questioned him about every single detail and he willingly answered all of my questions. He was about to provide me advice with regards to some of the changes we wanted to make structurally. The best part is every concern he found in the home he was able to explain in detail how to go about fixing it (many of which we are able to fix on our own by simply going to Home Depot and buying products he suggested). All in all I am very pleased with the attention to detail in both the inspection and the report. We had our report back the same day and we're resting much easier now knowing buying a safe home.
Money well spent!
Bryon conducted a home inspection for me prior to my June 2014 purchase of a new home. Bryon's inspection report was very thorough. He pointed out deficiencies, but he also made recommendations for repairs. After providing the inspection report to the builder, I have contacted Bryon with questions about the repairs the builder is recommending and the repairs the builder is refusing to do. Bryon continues to be available and promptly answers my questions. If you are buying a home, I highly recommend Bryon for your home inspection. You will not regret it.
Bryon was extremely helpful with his inspection and reporting style. He was fast to respond to my inspection request and was able to be at the residence the very next day. Thanks again Bryon for all your help!
We had Bryon do an inspection on our newly constructed home and we're glad we did! It was quick and easy to make an appointment and the report was ready the next day! Would definitely recommend!
Bryon is exceptionally knowledgeable, a great teacher, experienced, fun, fair and honest. Furthermore he has saved me a lot of money on owner-building my own quality house. I highly recommend him and his services.
As the title says, very helpful and gave us a detailed explanation of the inspection. Will do future business
Commercial Building Inspection
Bryon and his team were friendly approachable and most importantly very thorough and knowledgeable about the entire inspection process. The reports were returned very quickly and presented in an amazing powerpoint presentation with every inch of the property discussed. And best of all it was very cost efficient!
Excellent! Informative, professional and explained items needing attention in a very clear and concise manner.
I found this company on line and i am glad i did , very very professional team, they took enough time to explain every thing during inspection ,lots of details i do recommend them for sure .
