Infrared scanning produces thermal images that allow homeowners to see where opportunities exist in their homes for energy improvements. Homeowners are able to view their homes' thermal image analysis results on a secure website, and those who view their results are eligible for a no-cost energy efficiency assessment from DOER's Mass Save® program.
The thermal scans are quite revealing. While a relatively new home may appear to be well maintained, a thermal scan can expose problems such as missing insulation or air leaking from single-pane windows. Assessing visual scans can motivate homeowners to take the next step of getting their home professionally assessed for energy efficiency opportunities.
