Thermal imaging has become an invaluable tool in the specialized field of energy auditing and building diagnostics. By itself, an infrared camera only tells half the story. The use of a blower door in conjunction with a thermal imager can help you locate areas of air infiltration throughout the building envelope that are not necessarily going to be detected under the natural stack effect.
This complimentary paper, originally presented at InfraMation 2009, explains how working with a blower door helps building thermographers get better, and more consistent, results in the field.
