Infrared Home Energy Audits in Ottawa and Montreal - Mold Busters

Ottawa & Montreal

A home energy audit is a thorough assessment of your home’s energy consumption. It’s the first step in ensuring an energy-efficient home.

Mold Busters offers complete residential energy audits in Ottawa as well as residential and commercial energy audits in Montreal.

We’ll help you detect air leakage, missing insulation and poor ventilation so that you can address these issues promptly, save money and optimize the energy performance of your home.

We use high-resolution infrared cameras to conduct a thorough thermal scan of your home, checking for air leakage and poor sealing in the following components and systems:

  • Roof and attic
  • Basement
  • Insulation
  • Vapour barriers
  • Windows and doors
  • Fireplace and chimney
  • Foundation
  • Pipes and ducts

An energy audit will reduce your utility bills, improve the overall comfort of your home, and last but not least, help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Infrared imaging for home energy audits

During an InfraScan energy audit, a certified thermographer will conduct a thorough inspection, analysis, and survey of your home using a high-resolution infrared camera, which allows the inspector to::

  • Determine if air leakage exists
  • Determine exactly where the air leakage is coming from
  • See the energy flow inside the house to determine where and how energy is being lost
  • Measure the energy input versus the energy output to determine the energy conservation of the structure

Ideally, in a sustainable energy environment, you want to reduce energy input without negatively impacting output.

Any problems found during the inspection will be identified in a series of infrared images (which you will receive after the energy audit is complete), and the inspector will recommend a number of effective retrofits, upgrades and improvements that you can implement to increase the energy efficiency of your home.

If you’ve noticed a draft in your home or are spending way too much on your energy bills, contact Mold Busters and book your energy audit.

Improving energy efficiency

One of the main contributors to heat loss and energy inefficiency is air leakage. Air leakage happens in the winter (when warm air leaks out of your home and cold air enters it) or in the summer (when warm air penetrates into your home and cool, air-conditioned air seeps out of it).

In both cases, energy bills tend to spike as your home’s HVAC system attempts to restore room temperature.

Poor insulation, cracks in walls, a damaged roof or poorly sealed windows and doors are all common ways that air can get into and out of your home.

An energy assessment will pinpoint the problem spots in your home so that you can repair them, improve energy efficiency and save money on your energy bills.
