Session Description

Infrared (IR) for Weatherization and Energy Auditor

CEUs:  TBD

Instructor: The Snell Group 

About the Snell Group:  The Snell Group is the leading experts on using Infrared Thermography. The infrared application classes are led by instructors who, together have decades of experience and knowledge in the industry. They respond to your particular interests, application questions, and address equipment needs to ensure your long term success with this technology. Thermography is the process of using a specialized, electronic infrared camera to detect thermal radiation (heat) emitted by an object.


Course Description:  This course is designed for those who use thermal imaging or are considering adding the technology to their program or scope of work. This class will meet the needs of any building thermographer that is using infrared to inspect residential buildings for insulation defects, air leakage problems and moisture related issues as well as other common building defects. Courses are open to all models of thermal imaging equipment. 

There are several hands-on simulations and exercises built into the course. While owning an infrared camera is not required for attendance, participants are encouraged to bring their cameras to class. Completion of this course prepares students to successfully apply infrared technology to residential energy audits, insulation and air sealing work, and home inspections.
