PV Project Thermography - Control Home (5/7/98)

Southwest Corner

This IR photograph shows the effect of the south-facing covered porch on the control home. In the center of the photograph, the red spot is heat coming into the master bedroom through the corner joining the south wall (under the covered porch), the west wall, and the ceiling. Since this picture was taken about 3:15PM with the sun shining on the west wall, it is seen that the covered south wall is visibly cooler than both the ceiling and the west wall.

The temperature range is from 66°F (darkest colors) to 84°F (lightest colors).
