Most well-insulated buildings should show consistent temperatures, providing they are well maintained.
A thermographic survey will detect any decreased temperatures which indicate cold air ingress which is typically a result of missing or damaged insulation.
The equipment we use sees heat instead of light and automatically allocates a colour from a spectrum to the temperature. White shows the hottest parts of a building, moving down to red, then blue and black are the coldest. Our reliable equipment allows us to generate a visual thermal imaging survey.
We use the latest thermal imaging cameras to provide a detailed analysis and report which accurately identifies energy inefficiencies.
Some materials reflect heat in different ways though (for example, window glass) and so do not give accurate thermal imaging readings. Sections such as roofs and walls, however, will show different colours for the changing temperature.
Many homes lose heat through damaged or missing insulation in the ceilings and wall-ceiling junctions or poor detailing at junctions. Increased external-wall temperatures show where heat is leaking and therefore the potential for improvement. By making these improvements, you will save money on your heating bills.
With your report, Ploughcroft will offer no-obligation advice about how to improve the energy efficiency of your home. By working with you to understand your report, we’ll let you make your own decision about which heat-saving methods to proceed with.
