Energy efficiency of a building is greatly influenced by the building envelope airtightness and R-value. By limiting the heat transfer between the indoor and outdoor environment, efficient building envelopes allow homeowners to maintain comfortable living temperatures while minimizing energy required to heat and cool the building. Confirmation of design and post-construction performance is key to sustainable construction. 

The Thermal Efficiency Monitoring (TEM) Kit provides an assessment of the thermal performance of existing structures in consideration of existing standards: ASTM C1046-95(2013) & C1155-95(2013). 

Installed heat flux sensors are located on the inside and outside of the structure to ensure valid measurements are always taken, despite temperature flips between night and day, season, weather etc.
