Thermal imaging vividly reveals weaknesses in a building’s insulation and air tightness.

These popular training sessions are for people wanting to volunteer to borrow a thermal imaging camera to examine their own homes, those of friends & family and others who’ve requested a survey. Participants learn how to use our two cameras and how to interpret the results.

Find more about the benefits of infrared surveys and how those trained can borrow the CCF’s thermal imaging cameras on our thermal imaging page.
