In the context of global carbon reduction targets and the latest MEES regulations, it’s vital that buildings must be energy-efficient and sustainable. However, it’s not always easy to accurately establish areas of heat loss. Thankfully, powerful thermal imaging technology can make a significant impact. It provides a unique insight into a property’s condition by revealing details that are invisible to the naked eye, enhancing the results of a non-thermal survey.
Enhanced, Precise Surveys
Using state-of-the-art cameras to scan the fabric of a building, our surveyors can detect insulation deficiencies, moisture intrusion, electrical faults, and even pest infestations. Due to the camera’s acute sensitivity, we can precisely pinpoint problem areas by differentiating between minute temperature differences, and this level of detail in a survey is invaluable. We can provide a more comprehensive analysis, which is critical for identifying deficiencies and defects and improving energy efficiency before building or refurbishment work starts.
Combined Expertise and Precision
Whilst imaging throws up hidden thermal anomalies, as with most technical advances, the thermographic data is complex. To gain maximum impact, it needs specialist interpretation. And as experienced surveyors who understand the complexities of a building, we are perfectly equipped to decode. Where appropriate, using thermal imaging means surveys, whilst comprehensive, are more precise.
If you’re concerned about any aspect of your building, including the most effective route to achieve energy efficiency, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
