DO SOME ROOMS IN YOUR HOME HEAT SLOWLY IN WINTER OR COOL SLOWLY IN SUMMER?
Do you wonder if you are wasting your hard earned cash on energy expenses that don’t provide the comfort you expect? Stop wondering. Let’s us conduct a thorough energy audit utilizing the latest in building thermal imaging. You can see for yourself if there are hot or cold spots throughout your home – straining your budget and your comfort or worse, damaging the safety, integrity and value of your property.
We take a “whole building” approach to maximize the energy efficiency of your property. Indoor environments can be compromised by poor insulation, poorly sealed windows and doors, inadequate or poorly sealed duct work, plumbing leaks, or other moisture issues relating to Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.
GET THE BIG PICTURE
An infrared camera is a tool that helps allows us to the big picture. With FLIR infrared cameras for, it is easy to scan an entire building and inspect the HVAC system, building envelope, and plumbing issues. And, with FLIR cameras, you can see how, when, and where energy saving solutions can be implemented. From determining insulation effectiveness to diagnosing faulty duct work, an infrared analysis of your home helps protect your property and your budget.
HEAT LOSS CAN ACCOUNT FOR UP TO 50% OF TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Air tightness and thermal imaging testing are important quality control measures when building or renovating a house. Heat losses in buildings can account for up to 50% of the total energy consumption and comes from air leakage through chimneys, attics, wall vents and badly sealed windows/doors, etc.
Adequate air exchange is essential for occupants’ health and safety, but most buildings have a far higher rate of air exchange than is necessary. The root cause is often poor design and/or construction which allows air leakage from the inside or outside of the building, or the opposite. The leakage pathway is often complex and, without thermal imaging, extremely difficult to visualize. Thermal imaging also allows us to quickly identify problem areas so you can plan repairs to stop the energy loss immediately.
To identify areas of energy waste, infrared imaging has quickly become a valued tool in identifying problems related to energy loss, missing insulation, inefficient HVAC systems, radiant heating, water damage on roofs, and much more. A thermal imaging camera identifies patterns of heat loss that are invisible to the naked eye. Thermal imaging quickly indicates the air leaks within a property and measurement data are easily compiled into a report.
