Where thermography comes in….
Thermography is used to identify thermal defects in buildings by measuring and recording the reflected energy of an object or area. These thermal images accurately detect problems by relying on reflected heat. The coldest temperatures will appear as black/dark blue images and range up to red / White for the warmest temperature.
In this process, we determine the areas of heat loss, building defects and anomalies in building structures, which in turn enables homeowners to avoid the sometimes-costly expense of invasive and destructive measures. We effectively allow the homeowner to have a more detailed insight into the property in which they plan to invest. This practice has proven highly successful in old and listed buildings to help identify adaptions and alterations.
Our focus is to improve and maximise the thermal qualities of the whole structure. This takes into account the age, condition, usage, the status of the property (example listed) and particularly the clients long- and short-term goals. There are also substantial added value benefits, which are:
- Identify long and short-term maintenance issues
- Improve ventilation
- Improve health conditions, allergy-free (fungi and moulds associated with damp and condensation)
- Improved comfort
- Change habits
- Save money
- Helping the war on climate change
