Unleashing vehicles with thermal Imaging technology to detect heat-loss from homes and buildings


In 2007, Google unleashed a fleet of cars with roofmounted cameras to provide street-level images of roads around the world. Now YSI spinout HeatGrade is bringing similar “drive-by” innovations to energy efficiency in homes and businesses. HeatGrade deploys trucks and cars with thermal-imaging rooftop rigs that create heat maps of thousands of homes and buildings per hour, detecting fixable leaks in “building envelopes”—windows, doors, walls, and foundations—to help owners curb energy loss.
