Paper Abstract

The effectiveness of aerial infrared thermography as an energy audit procedure for residences having pitched ventilated roofs is investigated. Three adjacent unoccupied houses were instrumented to provide ground-truth comparison data under various weather conditions. Factors affecting the accuracy of this technique are identified and analyzed, and guidelines are presented concerning the recommended use of aerial infrared thermography as a procedure for assessing the thermal performance of residences. Keywords: aerial scanning; energy conservation; infrared halo analysis; infrared thermography; roof heat-loss survey.
