Heat loss

Is your building 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 through a thermal imaging inspection. An old heating system may not be the cause of a cold house — missing or damaged insulation and air leaks could be the culprit.

Experts You Can Trust

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.

Only Your Best Interests In Mind

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.

Trusted Results to Give You Peace of Mind

In many cases, with the information provided from our reports from a thermal imaging home inspection, the building owner can make the repairs themselves and save even more money on their energy bills each month.


Hire Us to See What You Can't See

There are many issues that infrared can see that are invisible to the naked eye. Once the issues are identified, the corrections can cut your energy costs.

Common issues can include:

  • Missing, damaged, or otherwise ineffective insulation,
  • Gaps in framing or stud work,  
  • Water damage within the wall cavity

Once you know the cause of your energy loss, you can address the root of the problem to correct the problem to stop energy loss and start saving money.
