Identify Heat Loss and Drafts Easily in Winter

Heat LossAs homeowners, we do what we can to keep bills down. That’s why when the price we’re paying to heat our homes goes up, and the utility rate hasn’t changed, it’s a sign that your home is losing heat somewhere. Now that winter is here, it is the perfect time to have thermal imaging done at your home to identify where the heat loss is taking place.

Winter is the right time to have thermal imaging done at your home because of the more dramatic difference between conditions indoors and outside. This makes a much more clear distinction between the heated areas and any places that are noticeably cooler, showing that heat loss is occurring. By scanning walls, ceilings, windows and other areas around the home, thermal imaging can provide a clearer picture of exactly where heat loss is occurring so that you can work to remedy the problem.

Insufficient insulation, exterior gaps, poorly caulked windows or improperly sealed doors can all allow warm air to vent out, and with a professional inspection backed by thermal imaging technology, we will find sources inside and outside your home and find the source of your heat loss.  On the exterior of your home, we will check aspects such as the roofing, flashing, vents and chimneys to see if any of those are the source of your heat loss and making you unnecessarily cold during the winter months. Any issues found during the inspection will be presented to you in your home inspection report, giving you the information you need to move forward and make needed repairs or improvements to save on your bills and stay warm this winter.

When you’re ready to have an expert come in and look at your home for potential heat loss points, Accurate Home Inspection can help. Thermal imaging cameras are a vital tool in our home inspection process and help us to find the source of heat loss at your home – and perhaps other hidden concerns with your property, as well.
