Sometimes, you need to know what is going on behind your walls, without cutting away drywall, to see where heating losses are costing you money. Our state-of-the-art Infrared Thermal Imaging technology lets us detect problem areas like gaps in existing insulation, air leakages, heating and cooling loss due to poor construction, water damage and moisture intrusion.
Home inspections provide appraisals of a building’s condition – often in relation to a sale – but can also be used to detect problems that aren’t obvious on the surface. These applications are ideal for infrared technology, providing homeowners with practical solutions and cost-effective guidance for solving unseen issues.
Heat loss areas can be identified from the surface of the building with infrared thermography. Identifying faults early means corrections can be made before extensive damage occurs. We perform energy audits on residential and commercial buildings, then give owners or contractors a recommendation for ways to increase the thermal efficiency of the structure and/or resolve insulation problems.
We have a ceramic floor above the garage and in the winter, the floor would often be 18 degrees colder than the room temperature. After removing the fiberglass and adding Icynene, the temperature difference is now less than 2 degrees, and we no longer have frozen pipes.
We were living in our 2 car garage while building our 3200 sq ft house with Icynene. We are now living in our home and using the same amount of fuel to heat and cool the house as we were using in the garage.
I had no idea that any one product could do so much for our homes as well as benefit the clients. We were able to reduce our energy consumption dramatically, which reduced our energy bills.
After re-insulating my attic with Icynene, my home is significantly cooler in summer & warmer in winter.
With Icynene in our townhouse, our energy bills are 35% less than our neighbors who used fiberglass. And with the addition of an air filter, our son is having less asthma attacks.
I am SO glad I decided to use Icynene to insulate the entire envelope of my house. We did a full-renovation, and the 100% air barrier has been fabulous. Ameri-spec tested our house for the federal renovation grant, and said we were more heat efficient than most of the new “green” homes going up on the west side. Icynene definitely contributed to the $3800 rebate we got.
