Our home is expensive to heat. Not only is that, but it feels drafty. We were convinced that our main heating problems were the Windows in our family room (where the thermostat is) – all were replaced without any effect.
Annoyed, we needed to find a way to pinpoint our homes problems. We turned to Thermal Imaging by Northwest Infrared to help us understand the problems. I am very impressed and highly recommend their service. I believe this is the single best thing that can be done to your home. It is inexpensive and pinpoints phantom energy loss. Northwest Infrared only does energy evaluation – you’ll get brutally honest information without the sales pitch.
Thermal analysis is a two step process:
- Depressurize the home taking accurate barometric measurements to determine how much leakage there is.
- Use a thermal imager to see where cold air is leaking into the home.

Our new windows weren’t sealed correctly (you can bet we’ll be bringing that up with Anderson Renewable):
Just a dog
I took some video during the process:
