The U.S. Department of Energy Recommendations


The U.S. Department of Energy now advises home buyers to get an infrared (thermographic) inspection before making a final purchasing decision In a publication titled "A Consumer's Guide to Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy" (EERE), the DOE outlines the benefits of infrared scanning to detect problems with energy efficiency. It goes on to state, "In addition to using thermography during an energy audit, you should have a scan done before purchasing a house; even new houses can have defects in their thermal envelopes."

"You may wish to include a clause in the contract requiring a thermographic scan of the house," the DOE adds. "A thermographic scan performed by a certified technician is usually accurate enough to use as documentation in court proceedings."
