"Hmmm.. So thermography in conjunction with data can tell you stuff and information which is useful for comparing other data and stuff that is green.
oh yeah, and impressive pictures, useful tools, pretty colors, data, and stuff."
"The intent of evaluating a building for an energy rating is to include many data points, one of them being thermography. Thermography is a measurement tool with most thermal imagers calibrated to provide an accurate thermal measurement (+-2C or 2%).…"
"What does it even tell you? Thermal is diagnostic, not measurement.
I get really tired of seeing this "save energy" stuff with no measurement behind it. Save HOW MUCH? LOTS? Put LOTS on a deposit slip and…"
"Any bets on how long it will take this company to land in court?
A local energy efficiency group in Michigan tried a similar idea last year in a small town and got a lot of backlash from homeowners. This is an idea that looks good to energy wonks…"
If that foil sandwich is a supplement to existing minimal fiberglass batts, then it will have some enhancement effect, by reducing convection in the fiberglass and by creating a modest (though dusty) radiant barrier, which will help reduce…"

"Hello all..... Taking into account all the feedback I've received on Home Energy Pros, as well as from others I've talked with in person, I've also come to the conclusion that offering just an independent energy "audit"…"
"The independent auditing business model does not have much staying power, plus there is not enough profit dollars in it to sustain yourself long term.
Besides, using this model, I would argue, unless one expands into additional offerings (radon…"
"Hate to add to the chagrin this may cause some of you pure auditors (God bless you), but such a model has worked very well, and continues to do so, for my company.
Offer a free walk-through assessment, and if they want to play ball offer them the…"
"A number of you are going to end up wanting to shoot me after you read this, especially those who are strictly independent energy auditors, but I ask that you take a moment to hear what I am saying here, and it might just help you gain revenue with…"
