WHY DO I HAVE TO WEAR DOUBLE WOOL SOCKS IN MY 8 MONTH OLD HOME?

A homeowner of a newly built 2 story home in an over 55 community contacted AmeriSpec Inspection Services to determine the cause of cold rooms and significant air leakage. The owner complained that a few rooms in the home were as much as 10 degrees colder than adjoining rooms. The builder of the home had been working with the homeowner to address the issues and had all but given up.

We performed an Infrared Scan of the entire home and found missing and improperly installed insulation and air leakage at almost every wall to wall, wall to ceiling and wall to floor junction throughout the home (dark areas show missing/improperly installed insulation and air leakage).

A full written report with infrared and digital photos of every anomaly was presented to the homeowner as well as folder of repair options.
