Infrared Scanning Standard Task Force

The thermal imaging technology has advanced significantly in the past few years and the price of equipment has grown more affordable. The technology offers the promise of a way to measure the EPA ENERGY STAR Homes Thermal Bypass Checklist and the quality of the installation of the insulation after the dry wall has been installed.

To pave the way to achieving this potential, RESNET is considering adopting a standard for conducting an infrared scanning standard. A draft standard is currently be developed by a RESNET standard drafting committee. The committee is basing its work on the experience of its members and the United Kingdom's standard for using the technology in measuring the quality of insulation installation.

RESNET has formed a infrared standard task force. The task force will be responsible for reviewing and commenting on the draft standard developed by the drafting committee. The input from members of the task force will be used by the RESNET Technical Committee and the RESNET Board of Directors in its deliberations on adopting the standard. The task force represents a rich diversity in the building performance industry. To view the members of the task force click on RESNET Infrared Scanning Standard Task Force Members.
