    Good advice. I’ll send some Houston and Austin clients to you website for advice. We sell windows and siding amongst other things. Energy audit is a good idea before and after window install to measure difference.

No doubt you’ve probably heard the phrase, “Out of sight, out of mind.” And, while it’s true you may not be able to see the places around your home where energy loss is happening, it’s a fair bet when you get the monthly utility bill, it’s definitely on your mind. Luckily for us, technology has advanced to the point that allows us to see the invisible. An energy audit of your home is a worthwhile investment, because it pinpoints the sources of energy loss so you can correct the problem. And now, the tools the pros use are available to anyone. Tools like this can be used to detect leaks around doors and windows by measuring the surrounding temperature. It can also detect an overloaded circuit that could possibly cause a fire. You can even rent state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras that can give you a “chilling” account of where your home’s envelope needs to be sealed. So take advantage of these tools to remove the cloak of invisibility and turn “out of mind” into peace of mind.
