Infrared Imaging

Infrared Imaging can help you "see" behind walls and ceilings.

What is an infrared scan?

An infrared scan (infrared imaging) is a heat detection test. It is usually part of a complete home energy audit.

The test uses a specialized infrared camera to capture temperature differences in the home. Heat differences are depicted by various colors. Infrared scans are often called thermographic scans.

An infrared scan, interpreted by a trained auditor, will reveal hot and cold air escaping, depending on the season.
Infrared scans, also known as infrared images, are interpreted by a trained auditor. The brightly colored images reveal hot air escaping in the winter, and cold air escaping in the summer. By discovering these areas, the auditor offers recommendations to fix these problem areas.

The images are used to determine what is otherwise hidden from view or invisible in your home. With specialized training, the skilled home energy auditor is able to interpret these images.

What can infrared images reveal?

Your Green Home Consulting auditor uses infrared imaging to:

  • Reveal air conditioning and heating leaks.
  • View behind drywall and walls.
  • Look at ceilings.
  • Find drafts coming from windows and doors.
  • Determine insulation coverage and effectiveness.
  • Discover areas that hold moisture.
  • Spot ice dams.
  • Identify problematic hidden electrical issues.
  • Uncover pest problems.
The home energy auditor can detect heat in areas where you might least expect it. One must be skilled at deciphering the images to determine the cause, whether it is an overheated electrical wire, pests or air leakage.
The home energy auditor can detect heat in areas where one might least expect it. The auditor must be adept at deciphering the images, It takes training to determine the cause of hot and cold spots. The problem could be an overheated electrical wire, air leakage, a lack of insulation, or even an insect infestation. It is not only savings that is of concern, but also safety and comfort!

How are the best infrared images obtained?

The best infrared imaging occurs when performed in conjunction with a blower door test.

The blower door test exaggerates air leakage points for better visualization of the problem. Usually, the two tests are performed at the same time.

What is the benefit of an infrared scan?

This test indicates where air leakage is occurring and provides vital information to guide improvements. As a result, we can suggest customized solutions to reduce loss of air conditioning and heating. Infrared testing will save on energy, ensure your home is safe, and make your home more comfortable.

Find out which improvements will make the biggest difference in your home. Learn about the relative benefit for the cost.
