VPIS funded the Energy Lending Library at the Mary Riley Styles Public Library. Established in 2017, the Energy Lending Library allows Library cardholders to take home thermal imaging cameras and books that will help identify areas of energy waste in homes.
Thermal imaging cameras see what your eyes can’t. They help identify hot and cold spots in the home, indicating where insulation is missing and where air leaks occur. The expanded Energy Lending Library now has four portable thermal camera devices that attach to a smartphone: two iOS attachments that connect directly to an iPhone or iPad Lighting port, one attachment that connects to Android devices using USB-C, and one attachment that connects to Android devices with Micro-USB.
