Abstract
Aerial thermography and spot radiometer techniques were used for the assessment of roofs and heat loss through building envelopes of office buildings. The inspections were part of the diagnostic programs developed by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) for the General Services Administration (GSA) to evaluate the thermal integrity of new and existing office buildings. The infrared inspections by aerial thermography and the spot radiometer measurements were performed by outside contractors; all other tests in the program were performed by NBS. This paper presents the analysis and results reported by the contractors, and discusses the capabilities and limitations of equipment, and make recommendations for aerial thermography and spot radiometer inspections on office buildings. Also included are comparisons of R-values determined from spot radiometer and heat flow meter measurements, and discussions of the results in conjunction with the ground-based infrared survey and other techniques that were utilized. Specification formats for procurement of contractor services are suggested for further development.
