Infrared Scanning and "Blower Door" Analysis
Infrared scanning (thermography) is used to detect thermal defects and air leakage in building envelopes. By using infrared video and still cameras to measure surface temperatures we can determine whether or not a building needs insulation, where in the building it should go and if insulation has been installed correctly.
Thermographic scans are also commonly used with "Blower Door" tests. The blower door helps exaggerate air leaking through defects in the building shell. Such air leaks appear as black streaks in the infrared camera's viewfinder. Together, these two mechanisms work to identify escape points for unconditioned air, which detracts heavily from the energy efficiency of a unit.
