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

Heat Flow Through Recessed Cans

This set of photos show that even the PVRES house can suffer ill effects from recessed cans. As in the control house, because recessed cans are not covered with insulation in the attic space, hot attic air leaks down into the conditioned space.

The temperature range is from 65°F (darkest colors) to 83°F (lightest colors).
