How Infrared Thermography Improves Energy Efficiency

Is your HVAC contractor like a blindfolded surgeon? That’s scary to think about. Mostly because a blindfolded surgeon can’t do the job he needs to. In the same way, a contractor who is blindly trying to solve your home energy problems is useless. That’s why we use infrared thermography.

What is Infrared Thermography?

Sounds serious, and it is. But it won’t hurt a bit. In fact, when we apply infrared thermography to the entry points of your home (both seen and unseen), this scan will help you see where the air is leaking in and out of your home.

So, why is this important? Let me back up for a moment. Obviously, the efficiency of your cooling and heating system isn’t just about the setting on your thermostat. There are many factors beyond the weather and the highs and lows of today’s temperature. And while energy efficiency is affected a great deal by the performance of your home comfort system, it also has as much to do with the environment that is being heated or cooled. 

That’s why I mention infrared thermography. This is part of what we call our “Whole House Energy Analysis,” a scientific, professional evaluation of how your home environment affects your HVAC system’s energy efficiency. Are there hidden energy leaks? Are there particular areas where a little attention could make a big improvement?

These are the kind of questions this energy analysis can answer, and the result for you will be energy savings, better year-round comfort, plus some other things, too, that you can learn more about by taking a look at this info.
