Good Earth Construction is offering FREE FLIR infrared residential and commercial energy evaluations to all Billings area residents and business owners. Good Earth Construction has been offering this free service since 2012. However the general public is not taking advantage of this free service as we had hoped and we are trying to get the word out. We feel that this free service is socially, environmentally and economically responsible. Good Earth Construction would like to help and assist owners of all heated and cooled structures to become as energy efficient as possible. Good Earth Construction would like to educate and inform all home and business owners especially lower income home and business owners of energy loss conditions occurring in their home or business and advise them of cost effective ways to correct the problems and save money.
Simply put, all heated and cooled structures operate on the laws of thermal dynamics. All heated and cooled structures want to achieve a balanced temperature with the outside air temperature. For example: let's use your morning coffee as an example of the outside air temperature and cold milk as an example of a cooled structure. Your coffee is 200 degrees you add cold milk that is 40 degrees, the average temperature of the coffee and milk will become 160 degrees because the coffee (outside air temperature) absorbed the temperature of the milk (a cooled structure), thereby achieving an average temperature of 160 degrees. The same principle applies to heated and cooled structures. The only thing preventing a heated or cooled structure from obtaining this temperature balance is insulation.
Good Earth Construction uses the FLIR I-series infrared camera for all of our energy evaluations. We come to your home or business free of charge and take infrared photos and video of the interior/exterior walls, ceilings, windows and doors etc. in order to identify areas in which energy loss maybe occurring and then give a free written report of our observations along with recommendations on how to correct any problems found. This infrared technology is unlike any other energy evaluation. The FLIR I-series camera is not only capable of seeing energy loss from doors and windows it can also see into walls and ceilings in order to identify insulation and other issues. Unlike current energy evaluations: insulation thickness measurements, Blow-by tests, R-factors and energy coefficients. This infrared technology that we use takes out all of the guess work and allows the home or business owner to visually see with their own eyes in real time energy escaping from the structure. The need for all of us to become more energy efficient is obvious and Good Earth Construction feels that the only way to achieve this overall energy efficiency is to address the problem one structure and one person at a time.
Good Earth Construction is reaching out to the media in hopes that more people will take advantage of this totally free service. Energy efficiency begins and ends with the individual so please help make Billings a more socially, environmentally and economically responsible city by encouraging our citizens to be more energy efficient.
