Infrared Imaging is recognized as the fastest and most cost effective
way to find energy leaks. We use only high resolution IR cameras to
“find where your energy is leaking” and combine the power of Infrared
technology with our complete Home Performance energy audit. The
assessment looks at over 100 energy and money wasting items, identifies
areas in need and tells you where to make the improvements necessary
for saving energy and lowering your utility bill.
Agreenergy is happy to provide Infrared Imaging either as part of our comprehensive energy audit, or as an individual service.
The above image, courtesy of the US government Energy Star web site shows where homes leak energy. As warmer air rises in the building and exits the building, as it does it pulls in outside air to replace it creating drafty areas and wasting energy. This air circulation is called the “Stack effect”.
What can Agreenergy find when we scan your walls, floors ceilings and doors for signs of leaking energy? We can detect:
- Air infiltration (leaks) caused by faulty seals in windows, doors and light fixture
- Missing insulation
- Roof leaks
- Cold/hot air leaks around pipes entering the home
- Water leaks in plumbing
- Problems with radiant heating systems, heat distribution/leaks
- Pinpoint damaged or wet insulationa
- Moisture problems
- Leaking AC/heating ductwork
- Blocked pipes
- Overheating electrical panels (yikes! dangerous!)
Find your energy leaks now and start saving money!

|These pictures show the power of Infrared technology. The homeowner
said the room felt cold and was about to pay a contractor to install
replacement windows. It’s a good thing they called us first to verify
where they were leaking energy! We inspected the home with our high
resolution Infrared camera and found that the windows were OK. The cold
air (blue) was entering the room not from the windows, but from from
behind the baseboard!
|We often find energy loss under and through light fixtures and electrical outlets up against an outside wall or ceiling.|
