reduce heating bills & improve energy performance.
Suitable for home owners, property buyers/sellers and rental agencies. BREEAM credits awarded following our certified reports.
Heat losses in a building arise because of differences between indoor and outdoor air temperature. Naturally, heat flows from hot to cold and insulation reduces the speed of this convergence.
Confirm continuity of good insulation
Identify insulation deficiencies or construction issues
Detect empty wall cavities
Identify areas of missing or poor insulation
Detect attic insulation inefficiencies
find areas inside the walls where insulation may have fell down or settled
Cold Air Infiltration
Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your building is a cost effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, increase comfort and create a healthier indoor environment.
Avoid additional moisture and condensation problems
Avoid uncomfortable drafts caused by cold air leaking into the building
Reduce energy consumption
Heat the building more efficiently
Prioritize what needs attention first
Damp and mold cause respiratory infection, allergies and asthma. Moisture in the home can be caused by leaking pipes, damp, or leaks into the building envelope.
Visible mold is a problem, however most of the toxic mold floating around our air is invisible to the naked eye.
Detect water leaks and moisture early
Confirm water damage and severity
Assess condensation and mold growth potential
Dew point and vapor pressure data recorded
Improve energy performance
Justify maintenance spend
Residential Heating System
Thermal Imaging is an important diagnostics tool pinpointing problems in commercial and domestic heating systems.
Underfloor pipes or pipes behind walls can be located with leakages identified. Heating system performance can be assessed. Trapped air or sludge build-up affects radiator performance, among other things.
Leaks from heating systems can be serious enough to cause significant damage to a property.
UNDERFLOOR Heating System
Underfloor heating systems can be assesed using thermal imaging to detect areas of poor performance.
It cab also be used to identify the location of the heating element under the floor, which is essential in situations where holes need to be drilled, to avoid nasty suprises.
