The application of the proposed ASHRAE Standard "Application of Infrared Sensing Devices to the Assessment of Building Heat Loss Characteristics" afford the design professional and the construction industry with a standard of performance and a test of the quality of the Building Envelope. An established standard is required to communicate a uniform performance test that can be included in Section 00200 supplementary conditions of a new project specifications or contracted for as a special test before commencing a remodeling -retrofit project. Thermograms provided to the design professionals will assist in more thermally effective future designs.
