One of the most important ways to improve the efficiency of your dwelling is to make sure that it is well insulated. Unfortunately, many new and existing homes are missing essential insulation, leading to energy loss and higher energy bills. This is where Thermal Imaging can help.
Our home thermal imaging surveys can help you determine if your loft space, walls and floors are properly insulated. Using the latest high-resolution thermal cameras, we will check for gaps in the building fabric (walls, floors, and ceilings) for missing insulation, and we will provide you with a report of our findings.
Thermal Imaging to find drafts in your London home.
Draught can be very uncomfortable blowing cold air into your home via badly fitted windows, doors and/or cracks in the walls, floors, ceiling roofs.
Not only is this wasted energy, but it can also result in cold spots/rooms in your homes that you don’t want to use.
Our London thermal imaging surveys can help you to identify potential defects which allowing draughts to come in via air leakage paths in the building fabric so that you can seal them up and keep your home warm.
Identifying Thermal Bridging in Building Fabrics.
Our Thermal imaging surveys can also check for thermal bridging, which is when the construction elements of the wall construction etc. literally bridge across cavities – via mortar droppings etc. and causing a cold spot in the building envelope. Thermal bridging can occur around the heads, base of doors and windows.
It is important to have a professionally trained and certified Thermographer conduct thermal imaging surveys to ensure that all areas of potential thermal bridges are identified.
We can help with your Thermal Imaging Inspection
Our experienced and highly qualified thermal imaging surveyors produce higher quality and more technically consistent thermography inspections. Our Level 3 engineers can troubleshoot, calibrate equipment, interpret data, and create reports.
When you are employing a thermographer, you should check to see that they incorporate the high specifications possible for their inspections. Are they certified to Level 3 and do they use large format FLIR thermal imaging cameras? If not, you may end up having to do your survey a second time at double the cost!
Their specification should include:
- Level 3 thermographic certification
- Level 3 qualified thermographers
- Large format FLIR cameras with 45-degree lenses
Each thermal imaging report is reviewed and approved by our experienced and certified PCN Level 3 thermographers to ensure the highest quality for analysis and recommendations
