Since 1982, TOH has called for these tests to find out where a home's energy is being wasted. Today, techniques like blower-door testing are combined with infrared-camera readings, like the one used at the 2007 Newton project, to help homeowners pinpoint where to plug money-wasting holes and to learn of other ways to cut down on energy consumption.
