An energy audit is what most Dayton area residents and business owners consider when they are experiencing heat loss, energy loss, and air infiltration issues with their home or building. The problem with most energy audits in and around Dayton and Cincinnati is that they focus on electrical energy saving ideas such as installing compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's) and replacing older appliances. We all know that newer appliances are much more efficient than our 10 or 20 year old existing appliances, and that compact fluorescent lights use much less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs. Our Dayton and Cincinnati clients don't need to pay for this information. You want to know where heat is escaping, why you can't cool an area of your home or building, or why your fuel bills are so outrageous. Dayton Infrared thermal imaging and inspections will do precisely that and more. Our energy survey can show clients exactly where air infiltration is occurring, where insulation may have settled or been left out by the builder, and more.
Our service helps you identify areas of concern and where to focus your repair efforts to achieve the "best bang for the buck". Many of our clients have cut their heating costs by 20% or more and achieved more comfortable rooms, homes, and buildings by following our recommended advice.
Typically this service is only considered by area residents during the heating season when fuel bills appear to literally go through the roof. The fact is heat or energy loss occurs throughout the cooling season as well. The same factors affecting your fuel bills are affecting your electric (for the A/C) during the summer months. Dayton Infrared thermal imaging inspections work just as well during the summer as they do in the winter and provide the same level of service to help you cut your energy and fuel bills!
Missing or marginal insulation can increase heating and cooling costs in homes and commercial buildings as well as creating occupant discomfort and often moisture issues. Once the finished walls, ceilings, and floors are installed, identifying missing or marginal insulation is impractical and often impossible without the use of destructive measures.
Infrared Thermal Imaging inspections now make it possible to identify missing and marginal insulation without the need for destructive or invasive measures. Our technology allows us to ‘see’ behind walls, ceilings, and floors to identify insulation issues easily and quickly.
Our Dayton area clients appreciate the opportunity and cost savings our technology affords them. Often older home construction practices did not include thermal insulation in exterior walls until
more recently required by building codes. Traditional inspections are very limited in the ability to identify missing wall insulation. Whether purchasing, selling, or maintaining a property, we can now save our residential and commercial clients both time and money by combining both our traditional inspection process with our advanced Infrared Thermal Imaging capabilities.
Heat loss can also occur via air infiltration or air intrusion. Often building practices are lax in new construction and older homes were simply built "loosely". Cold/hot air intrusion can account for a significant amount of your heating and cooling bills. Often homeowners complain of cold rooms or uncomfortable areas or simply difficulty in achieving comfortable temperatures in certain rooms. Infrared thermal imaging inspections and surveys have assisted many Ohio homeowners to realize precisely where the heat loss and air intrusion is occurring. Many times the repairs are as simple as a weekend with several tubes of caulk, a few gaskets, and a minimal amount of insulation repairs, but on occasion, the repairs can be significant to correct builder oversights. Regardless, a thermal inspection from BC Warner Inspections can help you identify your areas of concern and assist you with organizing your repair efforts to achieve the best bang for your dollar.
