Calculate Heat Loss with Infrared Camera

August 22, 2011 by - 0 Comments

Did you like this?

attic insulation for heat lossYou may wonder why a roofing contractor would need to calculate for heat loss. One of the concerns for a roofing company is the energy-efficiency of your home. The condition of your roof and attic impact your monthly home heating and cooling bills.

 

There has to be enough insulation in the attic to keep it cooler than the rest of the house, otherwise you can end up with condensation problems or ice dams. From the point of view of living in the house, the insulation needs to efficiently prevent the cold from the attic influencing the temperature of the rooms below it. In the summer, you don’t want heat radiating from your attic and forcing your air conditioning system to work overtime.

When we go into your home to test for adequate attic ventilation, we need to know that when we install an attic fan or roof vent, your money isn’t wasted because the insulation is failing.
 
Using infrared cameras we scan the walls and ceilings in your house. We see precisely where you are having “energy leaks” from the attic. The insulation may look fine to the naked eye, but if it has been damaged by water, you will not be able to see it. In a stuffy attic, excess humidity collects in the insulation, thus reducing the R-value. When we calculate for heat loss it’s part of the process of keeping a balanced environment in your home by doing the necessary roof repair.
