Infrared – A Closer Look Inc. Dallas Energy Audit Surveys uses interior infrared scanning of your home or business to allow our energy auditors to check the effectiveness of your house insulation and attic insulation in your building’s construction. The thermograms, that our state of the art equipment generates help our auditors to determine where there are problems with your insulation, through wall conductive surfaces or air infiltration.

Your energy auditor then decides which cost effective options are available to improve the energy efficiency at the building envelope level. In North Texas, interior scans are common during the summer months. Exterior scans may yield valuable information if taken during certain season and times of day or night, but the heat loading of the exterior walls often over power the small leaks that can be visible during the summer days.

In addition to using thermography during an energy audit, you should have a scan done before purchasing a new or existing house. Newly constructed houses can have significant thermal defects in their thermal envelopes that can cost thousands of dollars in energy consumption over several years. You may wish to include a clause in the contract on your next house requiring a thermographic scan of a house or business before submitting your contract.

Enhanced Infrared Energy Survey

Call for a bid at 940-891-3803. The cost is less than your energy bill next month and you can start saving energy now!

The Infrared Energy Survey thermographic scans can be performed in conjunction with a blower door test to increase air infiltrations and make detection of air leaks easier and to a much smaller detail. The blower door is used to slightly depressurize the house. This helps exaggerate air leaking through cracks and gaps in the building energy envelope. That leakage is even more visible with an infrared camera.

HERS rating score

Call for a bid at 940-891-3803 and get that MPG type of information for your house that you use when looking for a new car.

The HERS rating starts with a physical inspection of the property to collect information about the building envelope and major energy consuming products in the house. This information is recorded and then entered into computer software that creates a digital profile of the structure and energy consumption.

This rating is the industry standard and can easily tell you and potential buyers how energy efficient house your really is.
