How to Identify Heat Loss in Your Home

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014 by Ronald Evans

Frost melting on roof

Frigid weather is unfortunately here and homeowners in Wisconsin are bundling up in preparation for the freezing months ahead. Many homes in cold weather climates are vastly under insulated. Even if the insulation is sufficient, often times the home has not been properly air sealed and leaks excess heat. At Dr. Energy Saver by LeafGuard NE WI we take an analytical approach to discovering and then remedying heat loss and inefficiency issues using our diagnostic equipment. Homeowners can also look at a few simple things on their own to get an idea of what is happening in the home.

While cold floors, drafts, and uncomfortable rooms are definitely telltale signs of heat loss due to insulation and air sealing deficiencies, simply looking at a house in colder weather can be a good indicator. Uneven melting on the roof is a telltale sign of heat loss, and when examined by a professional with an infrared camera, these issues are magnified.

Dr. Energy Saver by LeafGuard NE WI can take a more in depth look at these types of issues and give homeowners an action plan on what we can do to remedy home comfort and energy loss issues.
