Infrared Insulation Defect Scan

Increase the Comfort and Efficiency of Your Home Perform an Infrared Energy Audit

An infrared insulation defect scan is a scan of the building's walls, floors, and ceilings for defects in insulation and air sealing.

A proper inspection conducted by trained personnel with the appropriate equipment can reveal damaged or missing insulation, improper caulking, incorrectly installed materials, mold, or water damage.

For example, the infrared image below on the left shows missing ceiling insulation. The regular digital image on the right does not indicate any problems.

Below is another infrared image of improperly insulated walls with blown-in cellulose insulation. The blown-in insulation was not densely packed, and over the years insulation settled causing a defective thermal barrier. We recommend adding densely packed blown-in insulation where needed and retesting with the infrared thermal camera.

Note that houses normally have hundreds of small leaks, such as gaps around windows, doors, and baseboards, which are noticeable at times as drafts. Although this air infiltration increases the heating and cooling costs, it also maintains indoor air quality. There is a trend in modern buildings to seal the house with plastic vapor barriers to absolutely minimize air leaks and then use mechanical ventilation systems such as heat exchangers to provide air exchange.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Greg

We got the report last night. Thanks for sending it so quickly. Again, I cannot tell you how exciting it was to see all the data you generated for us and how grateful I was for the bits of knowledge you provided; all that is going to be very helpful as the guys start work on the house.

Marcia

This is so amazing! Thanks so much, Flemming. Will go over a couple more times and think on it and revert back with any questions. At the moment I think you covered everything.

Mike

Flemming called me back in a very timely manner with a proposed service date. Upon calling him back, we confirmed and he arrived on time even though our home is outside of his usual area. He got right to work, made suggestions and pointed things out to me.

Matt

Had Flemming do the energy inspection on our 130+ year old house. He did a wonderful job explaining what he found telling me about what he would suggest. When we remodeled a year or so later we incorporated many of his recommendations into the work.

This is an excellent vendor. Flemming was punctual, professional and very thorough. He returns calls, arrives at the job promptly, and he did an excellent job evaluating my home.

Lori

Flemming Lund performed an infrared audit of my home. He provided a detail report with color photos and recommendations. The report provided was extremely detailed and it ended up being invaluable for the insulation work I ended up doing with another vendor.
