Heat loss occurs more rapidly on homes that are poorly insulated. This will lead to higher utility bills. Here is a thermal image of the ceiling of a home we recently inspected here in San Diego that had a very large gap in the attic insulation. The homeowner had no idea this condition even existed in their home because this was located in an inaccessible section of the attic space and could only be seen with our thermal imaging technology. To ensure that your home is properly insulated be sure to thoroughly inspect the attic space and walls. However, some areas will not be visible, so the use of equipment like our thermal imaging cameras may be needed to do a more thorough inspection.
