It Happened On A <31 Degree Cold Winter Day in Ojai, CA
On a 31 degree morning in Ojai, CA, Frost/Ice was on all cars parked outside in the streets. The Owners had to scrape the ice from the cars to drive. We witnessed our Modular Lifestyles Home Owner’s House’s Roofs and Solar Panels displaying the same”ICE” as the cars however the other builder’s existing homes were free of “ICE” on their roofs (Hmmm?).
Photo Exterior Porch of Our Award Winning Home showing heat loss
Actual Home: TopYellow House to the Right
This IR photo depicts little transference of the Home’s furnace heat in the attic. The heat loss is at the seam of the ceiling and exterior windows. The interior home’s furnace temperature is operating at 78 degrees.
WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?
It appears our Competitor’s Home Owners Furnace Heat to be leaking through the attic to their roof surface which allows NO “ICE” to form on the Roof Shingles.
