Infrared Images featured image

Infrared (IR) cameras play a very important role in our building energy inspections. While the blower door is being operated, our energy auditors utilize the IR camera to detect areas of heat loss in the building shell that cannot be detected by the human eye. Below is a list of different things that the IR camera can and cannot do:

IR Cameras CAN:

  • Detect the presence of of inadequate or deteriorated insulation
  • Detection of air infiltration
  • Investigate water leakage

IR Cameras CANNOT:

  • Provide X-ray Vision
  • Provide Night-Vision
  • Detect mold

Infrared photos are included in our energy audit report, and give the homeowner a much clearer picture of the problems areas in their building. Contact Us today to get an IR inspection as part of your energy audit package.
