Monica and Gil Miceli, Founders

The husband-and-wife team, started HOT/SHOT Infrared in 1985 from the confines of their home.  It was Gil’s idea to start a company utilizing infrared cameras to locate energy loss on residential homes. After some minor success with home inspections, they quickly agreed to limit the scope of their work to commercial inspections. Monica headed up the sales team and they slowly started educating the Denver commercial real estate industry on the merits of infrared electrical inspections.  In 1989, Monica took over the Presidential duties and continued in this capacity until her death in 2015.  Gil was always seeking new ways to bring infrared into varied markets.  In 1990, they purchased their first aerial camera and began what has become a staple in our business, power line surveys. After a tough first 15 years, the company stabilized and became a profitable business.  Today, the company is run by their children and son-in-law with constant growth and a high reputation.
