Heat Loss Performance Testing

Infrared verification of insulation in residential buildings:

Is your home cold and drafty?
Are your heating bills higher than they should be?
Northwest infrared specializes in locating missing and damaged insulation in walls and ceilings. Your house is not cold and drafty because your heating system is old. It is cold due to damaged insulation and air leaks. Infrared scanning allows the professionally trained Thermographer to take a thermal picture of your walls and ceilings to show exactly where insulation is damaged and air is coming through your walls. We have found that nine out of ten homes have multiple openings in their thermal envelope that can be repaired to reduce their energy consumption. As Thermographers we do not sell any products or offer contracting services so there is no conflict of interest. In many cases, with the information provided from our reports, the building owner can make the repairs themselves and save even more money on their energy bills each month.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could find these types of flaws in the thermal envelope of your home?

More Missing Insulation

Here is yet another huge void in a vaulted ceiling = exterior wall. The blown-in insulation settled after the original installation. = Without the infrared scan, it would have continued to go unidentified and the homeowners would have continued to pay higher energy bills due to the = large gaps in the home’s thermal envelope.
