HCIL-2016-05

With recent sensor improvements and falling costs, energy auditors are increasingly using thermography--infrared (IR) cameras--to detect thermal defects and analyze building efficiency. In this workshop paper, we view thermographic energy auditing as a HumanBuilding Interaction (HBI). We provide an overview of emerging thermal data collection techniques in research and industry. We also reflect on our own work in this area and present our vision of citizen science/DIY thermography (Figure 1), which has the potential to engage the public in new HBIs by expanding their ability to: perform energy audits, survey public infrastructure, and contribute to urban energy analysis.
