Interior Inspection

Maryland insulation contractor

An inspection of the inside the home can reveal many things.  Thermal imaging can be used to detect thermal by-passes (leaky areas) of the home and can help guide homeowners to treating the right spots and putting time and effort into the right things. 

Other areas that are investigated include the basement, utility room for HVAC equipment configuration, garage connection, windows and doors.  Health and safety is a focus and as an example, natural gas lines can be inspected as well as basic plumbing and electrical for general condition feedback.

The basement rim joist is a silent energy drain for many homeowners in Maryland.

Due to pressure, warm air rises and escapes at the top floor ceiling resulting in cold air being drawn in at the basement level.

It is physics and the flow of air (draftiness) needs to be broken!
