If you are purchasing a home you should have a proper insulation inspection done before you sign any papers. At Virginia Foam we offer energy audits of existing homes and homes up for purchase. Our certified Building Performance Inspectors are experts at evaluating energy loss. They will walk you through each energy test they conduct and then leave you with a detailed description of your homes energy evaluation containing the information you will need to make your home more energy efficient.
Types of Tests Performed
The Blower Door test is performed to inform inspectors the amount of times per hour the air in your house is completely changed out. This test is done with a high pressure fan placed in the frame of an exterior door. The fan sucks the inside air out of the house to create negative pressure. The ending result will help our qualified inspectors know how much air leakage your home has.
At Virginia Foam we have the latest technology in Infrared cameras to perform top quality Thermal Imaging tests in your home. These tests are used to identify points in your home where there are significant amounts of energy loss. Thermal Imaging tests allow our inspectors to see the hidden problems in your homes insulation. Problems that would appear in a Thermal Imaging test include wall insulation, windows, or water damage.
