LumaSense Technologies Announces Weatherization Program for Home Inspection

Save Money by Meeting Current Home and Building Energy Conservation Standards

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2009) - LumaSense Technologies, a leading provider of infrared thermography and non-contact temperature and gas sensing solutions, today announced a new program for the growing energy audit and weatherization industry.

The recent U.S. Economic Stimulus Package is allowing more homes to participate in energy audits than ever before. Identifying and being able to correct previously unknown energy consumption issues in the home or commercial building is a crucial factor in energy conservation. Radiometric thermal imaging cameras are the best tool for making these discoveries and validating current home and building insulation integrity, as well as other anomalies such as moisture or termite damage.

Infrared imaging cameras have many features and benefits that can help you make accurate assessments of the thermal integrity of any residence or building. The lowest price camera in our Mikron Infrared product line has a minimal thermal resolution of 160x120 (that's 19,200 temperature calibrated pixels) ensuring that you are able to see details necessary to make determinations of thermal integrity and water damage. Mikron cameras are fully radiometric, which means they have the ability to measure the temperature of any spot on the image, unlike thermal imagers only (non-radiometric) that will not give you sufficient data to make a solid assessment.

Recently, LumaSense Technologies announced their Mikron MikroSHOT™ ultra-portable thermal imaging camera. This device is an excellent addition to LumaSense Technologies' well-established Mikron Infrared Portable Imaging portfolio of products. The MikroSHOT is able to fit in your pocket and is simple to use. For professionals in the home or electrical inspection, agricultural, power utility and other industries, the MikroSHOT is an affordable, low cost solution.

"LumaSense Technologies has a portfolio of radiometric cameras that are affordable and have the ability to meet all weatherization program needs. We are U.S. based and have been supporting our customers with fast, responsive service for years. We are in the best position to meet the weatherization program requirements with the right products, the right software and the right level of domestic support," comments Brett Sargent, Vice President of Sales for LumaSense Technologies.
