PV Project Thermography - Control Home (5/12/98)

Heat Flow Through Recessed Can Lighting

This pair of photographs show a common pathway for heat to "leak" from the attic into the conditioned space - via recessed can lighting. The IR camera photograph clearly shows heat from the attic entering the conditioned space. It should be noted that the lights had been "off" when these photographs were taken.

The temperature range is from 70°F (darkest colors) to 88°F (lightest colors).
