Heat Lost

By Marc Lize on 2014-09-04

 

Heat Lost is a result of many factors:

  • An air barrier that is poorly installed and/or ineffective.
  • The lack of insulation in the attic, walls and foundation walls.
  • Singles glaze windows provide zero R-value and contribute to heat lost in a major way.
  • Windows with metal frames that are not thermally broken. Like aluminum.
  • Double pane windows with the lost of it's argon gas due to a failure of the seal.
  • Wet foundations.
  • The lack of weather stripping at openings such as doors.
  • Poor insulated floor above the car garage.
  • Poor insulated floor above a crawl space.
  • Damage to the building envelope.
