A building owner or homeowner can benefit from an Infrared Energy Loss Inspection in the following ways:
  • The condition of the insulation can be assessed without destructive testing.
  • Water infiltration, which damages the performance of insulation, into the walls or attic is easily detectible.
  • Infrared inspections can identify areas where insulation is improperly installed or missing.
  • The sources of air infiltration can be identified.
  • Infrared inspections can be used for the purpose of quality assurance of a new home or commercial building.
  • Property owners can save money by being able to pinpoint areas needed to repair and make energy-efficient improvements.
  • Insulated roof systems and low slope roofs can be inspected for both energy loss and condition assessment. See the Commercial Roofing section of our website for more information.
