Thermal Tech is known for locating water ingression, but when it comes to energy auditing of homes, you may be losing more energy than your aware of?
We provide complete energy audit services and can detect heat loss using a calibrated thermography process, where your home is losing valuable heat in the winter. But Dan, it’s the middle of summer? Glad you asked, we can also show where heat is infiltrating your home and putting greater demands on your air conditioner in the hot summer months as well!
Getting back to recessed lighting or recessed can light. Recessed lighting can be a major source of energy loss in the home. They are essentially open holes to your attic. Each individual light is a mini chimney that sucks energy out of your home. By code any non-IC light, must have insulation at least 3″ away from the fixture itself. Fortunately it is possible to remedy the situation without having to replace the fixture. By identifying the problem, only then can a solution be presented. Fortunately installing a foil faced foam box which is then sealed around the light and then buried in the blanket of cellulose is one such remedy
