Charlotte NC Home Inspector Discovers Cause of Hight Heat Bill

December 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Charlotte NC home inspector Preston Sandlin was recently inspecting a lakefront home in Denver NC when the owner had informed him of extremely high heat bills.  Preston used his infrared camera on the home to see where the heat was beiing lost.  There were multiple places in the house where there was loose or missing insulation but the most revealing was a hollow exterior door.  Exterior doors should be solid and only interior doors should hollow.  It was a rather cold day outside and you can see from this interior pictur of the exterior door that it is loosing quite a bit of energy.  You even see the honeycomb pattern of the hollow core of the door.  Replacing this exterior door with solid weathertight door would go a long way to reducing their utility bills.
