This two-day class is designed for energy auditors, weatherization contractors and home performance professionals who use thermal imaging or are considering adding the technology to their program.

IR for Weatherization and Energy Audits will meet the needs of any building thermographer that is using infrared to inspect residential buildings for insulation defects, air leakage problems and moisture related issues. Courses are open to all models of thermal imaging equipment.

There are several hands-on simulations and exercises built into the course. While having an infrared camera is not necessarily required for attendance, it is strongly suggested that participants who own a thermal imager bring it to get the most out of the course.

Completion of this course prepares students to successfully apply infrared technology to residential energy audits.
