Infraspection Institute Partners with InterNACHI for Infrared Training

Burlington, NJ — July 11, 2018 — Infraspection Institute and the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) have announced dates for infrared training courses at two InterNACHI facilities. Infraspection Institute’s course, Infrared Inspections for Home and Building Inspectors, will be taught at InterNACHI’s House of Horrors® facilities in Boulder, CO and Weston, FL.

Cost Avoidance/Energy Savings for IR Thermography

“Has anyone documented Cost Avoidance Or Potential energy savings using Thermography. Ex. Downtime, Labor, Materials. I would be interested in understanding how you determined final cost or energy savings.”

This is the $64,000 question, how to justify the cost and benefits of an IR program. The methods used vary depending on your situation, what downtime costs in your facility, overtime and rush ordering to get new parts, lost production cost, your energy cost, etc.

I have selected several white papers that illustrate how different organizations have calculated their costs. Use them as examples of what can be done, and how they are presented.
