Did you know that a quarter of the energy consumed by Arizona homes is used for cooling? Many Phoenix-area homeowners are often surprised to discover that houses of a similar size consume far less energy than their own, especially on heating and cooling.
Energy Audits with Infrared Diagnostics
While many people think that infrared cameras are only used by firefighters and people from outer space, the reality is that infrared building diagnostics can be an incredibly helpful piece of the home improvement process. When homeowners want to investigate building envelope issues, infrared diagnostics are a useful tool.
When your home is evaluated by an infrared camera, you are given valuable information in regards to the effectiveness of your home’s insulation. An infrared scanner reveals hidden air leaks and areas where insulation isn’t performing, and can also yield some interesting surprises, like large voids or gaps in your wall or ceiling insulation. Having your home evaluated by an infrared camera is a valuable part of any good home energy audit, and a step that we guarantee to take with thoroughness and precision. Our experience tells us that it can also be a fun part of the energy audit for homeowners!
Diagnose Home Comfort Issues
Do you have uneven temperatures in your home? Is your second floor much warmer than the first or can you feel drafts in some areas of the house? Are there uncomfortably warm rooms, causing you to crank up your cooling system to compensate? If so, our infrared diagnostics can highlight the cause and therefore energy-saving opportunities using thermography.
