Owens Corning Energy Assessment app for FLIR ONE
Tuesday, December 22, 2015
If you’re the proud owner of a FLIR ONE and consider yourself a do-it-yourselfer, the free Comfort Tracker app for iPhone, iPad or Android from Owens Corning is a must-have. With winter up on us, or yet to arrive for some, the Comfort Tracker app helps contractors and DIY homeowners to turn their mobile devices into a tool that can help improve the home’s energy performance throughout the year.
According to North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA), more than 90 percent of U.S. homes are under-insulated resulting in lost energy efficiency, increased heating and cooling costs, and uncomfortable homes.
Using the FLIR ONE’s thermal camera, the Comfort Tracker app helps you conduct a simple and accurate energy assessment based on the insulation in your home.
The app with the FLIR ONE helps detect anomalies in the heat signatures of the walls in your home to diagnose possible problems with the current insulation. From here, the app recommends products and solutions to correct the flaw.
If you don’t have FLIR ONE yet, there’s still time to add it to your list this holiday. Once you’re ready to go hunt energy leaks with your FLIR ONE, download the Comfort Tracker app and start saving today:
