Our I-STAR™ Energy Appraisal Program uses the latest technology, including infrared/digital photography, and state-of-the-art energy assessment appraisal software to quantify your heat loss. Our NIA-certified technicians use the resulting data to calculate potential energy savings and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to determine the optimum course of remediation.
Our team of highly skilled appraisers and insulation professionals offer a full-service, efficient, safe and cost-effective energy assessment approach to reducing your energy consumption and carbon footprint.
Building Envelope Assessments
Building envelope energy losses are accelerated by moisture infiltration, wet, damaged, missing or inadequate insulation, poor construction practices, neglected maintenance and air leakage. Our team has the resources, experience, training and measurement tools to perform any type of assessment so you have the knowledge at hand to identify and eliminate weak points. To help identify building energy losses and moisture problems, we use infrared building envelope analysis. By using a comprehensive integrated evaluation approach we can provide high-level assessments for schools, hospitals, offices, pharmaceuticals, government, industrial and privately owned facilities. Our assessment includes Blower Door Evaluation and Infrared Technology Evaluation.
Mechanical Insulation Assessments
After completing our interview with the facility/energy manager and other engineering staff, we review the facility layout and mechanical system insulation integration and conduct a walk-through of the facility during which we fully measure and document all applicable piping, ductwork and equipment including insulated and un-insulated systems. Once we have completed all measurements and documentation, we utilize the 3E Plus® Program to provide the proper dollar values to BTU losses, and to calculate greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2, NOx and Carbon Equivalent (CE) data. Our assessment includes Steam Trap Evaluation and Infrared Technology Evaluation.
To realize the full benefits of a window film, whether it’s to save energy or provide an extra-layer of protection, it must be installed correctly. Even the highest quality films will not perform if they are not professionally – and correctly – installed. No matter what size or application, our full-service window film installation personnel are committed to completing your project on schedule and to the highest degree of quality.
