I've got many IR images of missing insulation throughout homes. Enjoy...


HEAT LOSS UP THROUGH AN UNFINISHED ATTIC


HEAT LOSS UP THROUGH A CHIMNEY CHASE INTO AN UNFINISHED ATTIC


COLD AIR INFILTRATION IN KITCHEN WALLS AND CEILING


INSULATION VOIDS THROUGHOUT THE EDGES OF THIS CEILING


INSULATION VOIDS CAUSING ICE DAMS OUTSIDE THIS WALL


A FINISHED ATTIC WITH EXCESSIVE INSULATION VOIDS


ANOTHER HOME WITH ICE DAMS OUTSIDE THIS WALL


THIS CEILING JOIST CAVITY WAS NEVER INSULATED


INSULATION VOIDS THROUGHOUT OUTER CEILING JOIST CAVITIES


WHY IS MY BATHROOM SO COLD? HMMMM, INFRARED DETECTS MISSING INSULATION


SETTLED WALL INSULATION


THE WALL CAVITIES AROUND THIS WINDOW WERE NOT INSULATED.
