Westporters beginning today have a unique way to improve the energy efficiency of their homes—they can access a thermal image taken last month by a roving vehicle that shows their home’s exterior heat loss.
The program, which runs until May 1, builds on the success of Westport’s Home Energy Challenge and the Solarize Westport initiative, said an announcement from Westport’s WeGreen Task Force. Westport is one of only four towns in the state offering the opportunity, it said.
Using a vehicle similar to Google’s mapping vehicle, the program used a vehicle in January to survey Westport’s homes to see where energy is leaking. The homeowner must give permission to access the results, the announcement said.
There will not be any privacy concerns, as the thermal imaging cannot see through surfaces such as windows, it said.
