For the more complicated projects, like attic insulation, radiant barrier installation, or a comprehensive home energy audit, it's wise to call in a company that specializes in this kind of work. These experts have a higher level of knowledge and experience, as well as advanced tools that are specifically designed for the job. For example, you can use a thermal leak detector
to find insulation "soft spots" in your home, or you can hire a specialist to conduct a hi-tech thermographic scan
. Both methods can find problem areas, but the scan - although more expensive - will be able to give you significantly more detail.
