Great! Sounds like you’re ready to make an important investment in your building to make it more energy efficient.
But hold your horses! There’s something you need to do first before contacting insulation contractors for quotes, an important first step we think is vital to your comfort.
A Thermal Scan.
Thermal imaging, or thermography, uses infrared light to ‘see’ variations in temperature. Because everyday objects give off heat, thermal imaging is a useful tool for troubleshooting energy waste in a building.
A Thermal Scan can help pinpoint the following issues in your building:
- Missing insulation
- Air leaks
- HVAC issues
- Moisture intrusion
A thermal scan is the first step to a more comfortable, energy efficient building. That way you’re not just insulating ‘blindly’ in hopes that it’ll fix what you think is wrong. A Thermal Scan will TELL YOU what’s wrong, enabling you to make informed decisions BEFORE wasting money on thermal solutions that may not work.
You should treat insulating your home or building the same way you would any purchase. You wouldn’t buy a car sight unseen and then hope you like it, enjoy the ride, gets good gas mileage, is low maintenance, etc. RIGHT? You do your homework first, test drive, check the stats, research, THEN purchase the car. Same goes with insulating a building. You wouldn’t just throw some insulation up in your attic and hope it keeps the building warm.
Problem is, because of the brutal winter we’ve been having, a lot of building owners are desperate for relief from uncomfortable surroundings. Freezing cold rooms. Annoying drafts. Dangerous ice dams on the roof. It’s enough to make any fed-up building owner jump the gun and act out of desperation.
It's worth taking the time to assess the situation. We want you to get your energy efficient upgrades started on the right footing. A Thermal Scan will do just that, and can have a significantly positive impact on troubleshooting and problem diagnosing. It will help you locate potential problems before they become troublesome, find current problems that need attention, and help you sleep better at night knowing you are able to make better energy upgrade decisions.
