About Weatherization and Infrared
A good weatherization IR survey can identify thermal anomalies that indicate missing insulation and insulation defects due to damage, moisture and improper installation.
The IR survey can also provide indication of potential areas of imminent condensation, moist or wet areas as well as air infiltration and exfiltration, especially when used in conjunction with blower door testing.
IR surveys can also find duct leaks when used with duct pressurization testing. Documentation with IR images is a key feature of IR thermography for weatherization. The course covers the caveats and environmental conditions necessary for a successful weatherization IR survey, as well as pitfalls to avoid.
