  • ircamera1Although most of the HBA building was insulated when it was built, over time, the insulation had settled or been disturbed.

    An infrared, or IR, camera (left) helped identify problem areas by showing warm areas in red and cold areas in blue.

    New fiberglass batt insulation was added to the attic walls. See the videos below to see the difference.

    HBA staff have also found their workspaces to be more comfortable.
