Find out where your home is leaking heat
With support from
Thermal imaging can vividly reveal where your home is leaking heat. The cameras are sensitive to infra-red and make ‘temperature map’ images . This can show problems with insulation, draughts, damp and more – useful in older homes, but also for revealing defects in new-builds. The images are easiest to decipher when it’s at least 10°C warmer inside than out, so this is mainly a winter activity.
Some of the problems shown are easy for householders to fix, like draught-proofing, and some, like faulty insulation, may need professional help. Significant improvements in comfort, energy bills and carbon emissions are often made as a result.
Come to a short training session 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 it provides good motivation to fix any problems that are revealed.

We are currently unable to offer surveys. If you want a survey, come to a training session, or if that’s not your thing, perhaps you can persuade a friend to get trained and then survey your home?
