Finding Ice Dam Damage

How Do I Prevent Damage From Ice Dams? Ice damming is caused by inadequate insulation.  To prevent an ice dam, don’t heat the roof, keep it cold. That way, the snow on the roof eventually dissipates without making large amounts of melting water. The underside of the roof deck should not exceed 30 F. The […]

Reduce Heating Costs

If you are concerned about heat loss, then you have come to the right place. Thermal imaging can be used to determine heat loss. Thermal imaging can validate the performance and quality of insulation in homes and commercial buildings. With the ever-increasing costs of heat, the return on investing in an energy audit and subsequent […]

Missy The Missing Cat

I was called into a home to do a normal home inspection for heat loss. Because my camera is so sensitive to temperature change it can actually see liquids like water evaporating from the environment (This in physics is the property of the latent heat of fusion) I saw a pattern of droplets evaporating on […]
