The Journal of Light Construction has long been respected as a place where builders can educate themselves and share information. I was recently asked to write an article introducing their readers to thermography and how it can be used in the buildings trade. The article is available as a PDF ( http://www.jlconline.com/cgi-local/viewnew.pdf/0/c110b79b5eeef975d9... ). I hope you enjoy the piece and also consider subscribing to the magazine.

Even after almost 30 years of using this remarkable technology, I'm still amazed at what I find and, more than ever, believe IR is an essential ingredient to successful energy work on any building.

Thermally yours,

John

Great article John. Your 30 year commitment to the field of thermography is greatly appreciated by us newbies who are trying to catch up with you. I agree that IR is essential to properly determine what is going on with a building's energy performance.
