If you’ve noticed drafty windows or cold spots around your house, you should be concerned about energy efficiency. After all, air leaking in from the outdoors means the heating and cooling system has to work harder to keep your home comfortable. Detecting an occasional draft, however, doesn’t help you determine just how energy efficient your home is. Here at Controlled Climate Services in Kennesaw, we can perform some tests to assist you in measuring this important factor.
Low-Emissivity Window Checkers
Low-emissivity coatings are applied to window panes to reduce how much heat they absorb from the sun. While most standard windows come with this coating, some older windows and specialty windows like stained glass don’t have it. Fortunately, with the help of a device called a low emissivity window checker, we can determine if your windows are lacking this important treatment.
We can use an infrared camera to capture images of certain areas inside your home. Using infrared technology, we’re able to detect cold spots and hot spots throughout your house. These images will ultimately help us identify the source of air leaks and insulation problems so we can fix them to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Blower Door Test
We can perform a blower door test to determine how airtight your home is. To conduct this test, we attach a large, high-powered fan to a doorway in your house. Next, we turn on the fan and measure both the airflow and the pressure inside your residence.
