thermal imaging heat loss survey

If you have been experiencing draughts or ineffective insulation, or if your building is not performing as it should, a thermal imaging heat loss survey may be just what you need. Using a specialist thermal camera, this type of inspection can highlight areas where heat is escaping or entering a building, revealing issues that would not be otherwise visible. This enables remedial work to be carried out, helping to improve energy efficiency and comfort levels. Find out

Thermography is a non-invasive technique that uses thermal cameras to capture infrared radiation, enabling a visualisation of surface temperature variations. This data is then analysed, identifying any anomalies that could be indicative of problems such as thermal bridging, air leakage paths and defective insulation. A bespoke report is then generated detailing the identified issues and recommendations for their resolution.

Comparing Heating Costs: The Value of a Thermal Imaging Heat Loss Survey

The accuracy of a thermal imaging survey is greatly enhanced by conducting the examination in the right conditions. This means that the buildings or structures being inspected need to be heated in order to achieve a greater temperature contrast between internal and external surfaces. This can be achieved either through the use of artificial heating e.g. domestic heating or natural solar heating – usually during the winter.

Similarly, the ability of a person to observe thermal variations on the body of an animal is heavily dependent on physiological factors. Physiological processes such as increased or decreased blood flow to the skin significantly affects the skin’s surface temperature, whilst a variety of body coverings can also influence an animal’s thermogram. For this reason, it is not possible to reliably predict how wild animals will respond during a thermographic examination.
