A cold snap is the perfect time for a thermal imaging survey, and it has been down to -8 this week in Surrey. A Thermal Imaging survey as part of a whole house retrofit assessment can identify problem areas for thermal bridging as well as highlight missing or badly fitted insulation. The resulting pictures are clear for clients to understand just how important it is to have continuous insulation wrapping their home, and just how much heat can be leaked through poor detailing and thermal bridging.

Blower door test and Thermal Imaging

When a thermal imaging survey is combined with a blower door pressure test an extra layer of information is uncovered. The house is depressurised with a fan at the front door, allowing cold air from outside to infiltrate that can be seen with the camera.
