This is really a great idea. I could see how buyers (up here in Michigan) would and could really benefit from the energy aspect.

Yes... with the high cost of energy prices... more and more people are having a thermal imaging scan done on their homes to find out areas of energy loss.  The Dept. of Energy is not recommending thermal imaging scans before the purchase a home.

Bringing you a prosperous future where energy is clean, abundant, reliable, and affordable
