Missing Insulation Bad Door Weatherstrip Blower Door Testing Air Leak at Light Fixture
We have taken our Infrared Thermography experience in Healthcare, Commercial and Industrial settings into the Residential market in order to help homeowners identify energy losses and moisture infiltration in their homes. Infrared (IR) scanning is the most effective way to observe heating and A/C losses through window and door frames, exterior walls and ceilings. Moisture in walls, attics, ceilings and exterior finishes will most often result in temperature differentials that can be observed via Infrared technology.
With our findings, homeowners are equipped to take corrective action that will improve their environment and decrease their energy costs. Infrared scans can be performed on new construction and renovations in order to "proof/accept" the contractor's work. We also work with Home Inspection Services when an existing
home is being evaluated by a prospective buyer.
Considering your heating and cooling load can be up to 50% of your actual energy bill, an Energy Scan IR in conjunction with a Blower Door test will help identify the two largest sources of heat and cooling loss thereby helping you save on your utility costs.
Our Infrared Survey of the building will be focused on the heat or cooling loss by finding missing, misplaced, or damaged insulation in the exterior walls, ceilings, and floors.
Our Enhanced Survey is a more detailed analysis of your home with the inclusion of a Blower Door Fan Test on your home. A Blower Door is used to find air leakage in your home, by quantitatively measuring air changes per hour. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings so we can locate the leakage areas.
When unconditioned air from outside slips into your home, or conditioned air seeps out, you have to pay to heat or cool that extra air replacement. By air sealing and insulating, you could potentially save up to 30% of your energy bill and create a healthier indoor environment. With an Energy ScanIR and Blower Door test, we can give you the correct information to institute a plan of action so as to make the correct improvements. The inspection report you will receive reflects the conditions of the property at the time of the survey only. For example; weather conditions, inaccessible areas, furniture or appliances that cover a given area may affect the survey results.
By conducting an energy audit, the auditor is able to identify ways to reduce energy loss. Minimizing energy loss could result in dramatic savings to your energy bills. Once the audit is completed, you will receive a detailed report of the results. The report will highlight any problems and include the auditor's recommendations on actions that need to be taken to improve energy efficiency. The intended result is home improvements that will increase your home's energy efficiency, comfort level, durability, and lower monthly utility bills.
In these very "trying" economic times, homeowners need to protect/improve their most valuable material asset...
