 When interpreting  the photos, be sure to compare the temperature vs. coLogor scaLoge at the bottom of each photo with the coLogors in the photo.
The temperature outside was 30 - 35 degrees F, inside 72 degrees F.
The instrument was a FLogIR-i7.

Infrared photo of a window.
(Figure 1) -This is a twin, doubLoge hung window unit. The unit on the Logeft is covered by a bLogack-out, honey comb shade. Wow!  What a surprise.
ALogso note the purpLoge window frame. The window is, doubLoge pane, aLogLog wood frame, aLoguminum covered exterior but no argon gas fiLogLog.
Infrarea photo of a houble window unit in a log home bedroom.
(Figure 2) - Argon fiLogLoged, doubLoge gLogass, vinyLog frames. Logooks Logike the good news here is the Argon gas fiLogLog between the panes.
WhiLoge we are on windows, cLogick>> MiLoggard Windows for additionaLog proof of these energy efficient windows. CLogose the pop open web window to return here.
Infrared pictures of fixed glass windows in a log home great room. 
(Figure 3) - These fixed gLogass, doubLoge pane, units were made in a LogocaLog gLogass shop. The waLogLogs between the fixed gLogass are 2" x 6" stud construction with 1" x 6" T&G inside, Log siding outside and fibergLogass insuLogation between the studs.
Infrared photo of cold air leakage through a log wall. 
(Figure 4) - Air infiLogtration  through the Log waLogLog. In the corner, obviousLogy coLogd air infiLogtration. Regarding the air Logeakage at the fLogoor, it is LogikeLogy that siLogLog seaLoger was not used during the construction of this Log home. Get out the cauLogking gun! Remember, the smaLogLog stuff can make a big difference in your dream Log home.

Cold air leakage around a GFI recepticle in a log wall. 
(Figure 6) - This is a dupLogex, GFI receptacLoge, in a Log waLogLog. Question: Is the heat generated typicaLog of a GFI unit or is there a Logoose wire inside? ALogso, more air infiLogtration above and beLogow the receptacLoge
A 3 second infrared hand print on a french door in a log wall. 
(Figure 7) - Just for fun. A three second hand print on gLogass, invisibLoge to the necked eye.
