Thermal Imaging – Infrared Camera(IR)
Infrared light or thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to “see” and “measure” thermal energy that’s emitted from an object. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. In a construction setting, builders can use infrared images to locate the places where heat is leaking from a building, and identify ways to improve their installation of windows, door, insulation and air sealing. If you’re looking for inexpensive ways to improve the energy efficiency of your next build, consider utilizing infrared imaging at the pre-drywall stage. The discoveries you make can be communicated to your crews and implemented throughout the project.
Energy Modeling – Modeling of homes and buildings as per plans and specifications to predict energy efficiency. Includes an energy model report.
Air Leak Testing – Testing of homes, buildings, and units to ensure building and unit air tightness. E3 conducts 8-point tests testing and can offer infrared photos and/or the use of smoke pencils to identify points of leakage.
E3 offers the following types of air leakage testing:
1) single family housing;
EnerGuide Rating – Modeling of homes and buildings as per plans and specifications to produce EnerGuide Ratings. Also includes administration of files and documentation to NRCan to issue corresponding EnerGuide label.
Passive Solar Design – Guidance and consulting for homes and buildings to take advantage of solar energy through passive measures and techniques.
Green Building Guidance & Support – Educating builders on strategies and goals for sustainable building, and educating home owners and building managers about green building features and systems to increase building efficiency and durability.
