Thermal imaging, also known as thermography, is a unique technology that identifies thermal patterns. Typically used in finding missing people or diagnosing bad electrical connections, thermal imaging is also a fabulous way to assess the energy efficiency of your home. Here are a few ways that thermal imaging can help you save your hard-earned dollars this winter.
Benefits of Thermal Imaging
1. Fans, Vents and Ducts – Some of the most obvious areas for heat to escape your home and cold air to enter comes from the fans, vents and ducts throughout the house. An infrared camera can capture on film exactly which vents and ducts have leaks or need to be sealed better.
2. Windows and Doors – Another big culprit for escaping heat comes from your windows and doors. You can see right away from the infrared photos which windows and doors need to be insulated better or replaced altogether. In addition, the camera will show you any areas that don’t have sufficient insulation around your windows or doors.
3. Floors, Walls and Ceilings – One of the more hidden areas for heat outflow comes from poor insulation in the floors, walls and ceilings. This is where thermal imaging can really open your eyes to missing or poor insulation inside your home.
4. Attics and Crawl Spaces – Does your attic always feel cold? Are you also aware of the draft coming up into your home from a crawl space? Thermography can quickly identify where you can add insulation to stop valuable energy from leaving your house.
You’ll be amazed at the visual evidence that thermal imaging can provide about your house! The infrared camera captures the exact locations of any heat-escaping areas within your home. Once you’ve received feedback from a thermal imaging assessment, you can create a working plan to fix these spots. In the long run, thermal imaging is an exceptional tool to specifically pinpoint how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency for any time of the year.
