:219 Summer Thermal Image Scan

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:219 EcoTip: Thermal imaging uses infrared energy to track sources of energy loss. There are many ways thermal imaging can be used to help diagnose hidden conditions but they all rely on temperature differences, Having you home scanned in summer can help identify issues related to hot outdoor conditions that might not be visible during other times of the year.

 Additional Information:

Suggested Review: :036, 037

The thermal image above shows areas of missing insulation in the summer (the red/orange areas). Compare this to :036 which shows heat escaping from a home’s eves in winter (the red/orange areas) and :037 which shows cold spots (the blue areas) which represent missing insulation in winter.
