Building Science Services
Building Science is an established method that uses scientific principles to reveal the influence of energy as it pertains to heat, moisture, and air within the building environment. The basic principles of energy transfer are the fundamental ingredients to understanding and balancing a building system. A building that allows energy to move efficiently through it will have a reduction in utility usage, be a more sustainable structure, and will provide a healthier environment, all translating into decreased operating costs.
New buildings can often be compromised from the start, therefore creating the need for commissioning. Non–commissioned or renovated buildings can similarly go through a retro–commissioning process. Infrared thermography is fast becoming recognized as a valuable tool in the building commissioning practice from commercial and government buildings down to the residential level.
At Infrared New England we treat your entire building as an energy system. We work with architects, lawyers, contractors, property managers, energy consultants, water restoration companies, and qualified home owners (references available). We are committed to helping our clients find solutions to their building concerns. Our report documents the condition of your building and offers specific recommendations to optimize its efficiency.
Here are some of the many conditions we identify:
- Total Heat Loss
- Moisture Intrusion
- Insufficient Insulation
- HVAC Imbalances
- Inadequate Air Sealing
- Electrical Hot Spots
- Radiant Heat Maps
- Pipe Leaks
- Roof Leaks
- Ice Dams
- Block Wall Grout Deficiencies
