April-October: thermal imaging is closed for most purposes through the warmer months.
But see our new resource on Thermal Imaging in a Heatwave, for which trained surveyors may want to borrow a camera in the summer.
Thermal imaging can vividly show where your home is leaking heat, due to problems with insulation, draughts, etc.
The images are most revealing when it’s >10°C warmer inside than out, so winter is best.
Some of the problems shown are easy for householders to fix, like draught-proofing, and some, like faulty insulation, may need professional help (not part of this project). Significant improvements in comfort, energy bills and carbon emissions are often made as a result.
Come to a training evening to learn how to use our thermal cameras and interpret their images -
then you can borrow a camera to survey your home, those of friends or family and (we hope) others in your neighbourhood. It's great to see your home in a new light and people find it good motivation towards fixing the problems revealed.
If you want a survey, come to a training session, or if that's not your thing, can you persuade a friend to come to one and then survey your home?
