Thermographic Inspections

Infrared images are taken by a special camera during the thermographic inspection by the auditor. These images can be very useful in pinpointing specific areas of the home where there is a gap in the air barrier or missing insulation. Understanding how to use the infrared camera during thermographic inspections in order to get the highest quality and most relevant images possible is a critical task for the auditor. The better the images you capture, the easier it is for the crew chief to direct his team in their air-sealing measures.

After completing this lesson, auditors will be able to:

  • Explain what a thermographic camera captures with its infrared images
  • Know how infrared images are best taken
  • Discuss how infrared images improve the weatherization process
