Highlight heat loss – Thermography

by Steph Marshall | on Dec 05, 2013 | 4 Comments

Is your building leaking energy like a bucket full of holes?

Unlike a bucket a building does not show visible signs of where energy is escaping, the best tool for detecting this heat loss is thermography.

Now is the time to have your building assessed using infrared thermography.   It is essential that there is a 10 degree variation between internal and external temperatures for the equipment to perform at its best.

Some areas that can be highlighted with the use of a thermographic survey:

  • Missing or insufficient insulation
  • Damp and condensation
  • Doors and windows with poor seals
  • Leaking gutters
  • Underfloor heating problems
  • Leaking pipes
  • Heating under performing
  • Blockages in pipes
  • Mechanical or electrical overheating

Thermal imaging is developing at a rapid rate and is able to show a huge array of problems that could remain undetected.  The most important aspect of any thermal survey is to ensure the operator is fully trained and experienced in the use of the equipment.

Whilst thermography is a great tool it certainly does not negate the need for an Energy Audit. An energy audit covers a range of areas from processes to people.  Please do give us a call if you would like further information about thermography or our energy audit services.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you have offered on your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick
    for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
