Performing Remote Inspections for Insulation Projects Nationwide

We have been busy planning our emergence since the stay at home order was issued last year! On our weekly calls, the Thermaxx sales team strategized so that all momentum was not lost when states start loosening rules and easing back into working. Our goal is to hit the ground running– carefully, of course, and not lose the progress that has been made in the energy sector.

We have tied our data collection tool directly to Salesforce and have the ability to generate an insulation survey within 24 hours of walking through a property. With the transition to more remote working, we luckily had a backlog of many jobs we surveyed. A lot of our projects are incentive eligible and require much more attention beyond the typical procurement process. Most utility incentive programs require a pre & post inspection.  When we perform a site walk through, we are documenting all the required data for the incentive engineering review with our app, including photographs of each “asset.”  

We reached out to the utility companies we work with and they agreed– the EET field app we are using to perform our insulation surveys can be used for utility company remote pre inspections!  Since presenting this idea, we have successfully submitted 6 incentive application packages in NY, CT, CA, OR and MA. We have also used our partner Slate Pages, to perform post inspections.
