Infrared Energy Loss Survey Course
| Hours: 32 | Type: Online | Enroll
This course is designed to help you expand your thermal testing business to include infrared energy
loss surveys. Providing this service will help your clients understand the sources and severity of energy loss
in homes and other buildings. Energy loss results in higher energy bills, personal discomfort, and potential structural
and air quality problems from moisture accumulation in certain areas. A professional infrared energy loss survey
report can be used to help remediate insulation problems, seal air leaks, or prove damages due to poor workmanship
or improper installation when the building was constructed.
This course will teach you the use and operation of infrared cameras, how to conduct proper thermal surveys, and
how to prepare and deliver a professional infrared energy loss survey report. You will learn the process for investigating
and positively identifying many different types of energy loss including insulation deficiencies, bypasses, air
infiltration, thermal bridging, and HVAC system problems. A previous Level 1 Thermographer certification is recommended, but not required. You do not need an
infrared camera to take this course. Level I Thermographer Certification, or 24 course hours in thermography basics,
or equivalent thermography work experience is recommended.
This is one of the only infrared moisture survey courses available anywhere, and provides outstanding infrared
training for an excellent value. Written in easy-to-understand language, the thermal training is accompanied by
many examples, videos, and practice exercises to help you become familiar with the concepts.
- Create infrared energy loss survey reports that document conditions, make recommendations, and use post-processed
- Ways to avoid false infrared temperatures that can result from emissivity and reflectivity of building materials
- How to locate and seal many thermal bypasses that siphon energy from buildings during hot and cold seasons.
- Ways to improve the quality of a thermal image by understanding resolution, palette, range, and image contrast
- Differentiate between missing or inadequate insulation versus problems with air infiltration and moisture.
As you complete each lesson, you will use interactive flash cards and take practice quizzes that will test and
verify your knowledge simultaneously through instant online feedback. Your computer records the results so you
can easily track your progress.
The course includes a quick-start DVD that will help guide you in starting a successful infrared business. Other
benefits include infrared energy loss survey report templates, a pre-survey agreement, and our toll free support
to help you get started. When you finish the course and pass the final exam, you will be a Certified Infrared Energy
Surveyor and will possess the knowledge and skills needed to start a full or part-time business, or expand your
existing infrared business.
