Infrared Energy Loss Survey Course
Price: $499 Length: 32-Hours (Online)
course is designed to help you expand your thermal testing business to include infrared energy loss surveys. Providing
this service will help your clients understand the sources and severity of energy loss in homes and other buildings.
Energy loss results in higher energy bills, personal discomfort, and potential structural and air quality problems
from moisture accumulation within a building envelope. A professional infrared energy loss survey report can be
used to help remediate insulation problems, seal air leaks, or prove damages due to poor workmanship or improper
installation when the building was constructed.
This course will teach you the use and operation of infrared cameras, how to conduct proper thermal surveys, and
how to prepare and deliver a professional infrared energy loss survey report. You will learn the process for investigating
and positively identifying many different types of energy loss including insulation deficiencies, bypasses, air
infiltration, thermal bridging, and HVAC system problems. A previous Level
