Thermal imaging for energy efficiency – Pros and cons

Thermal Imaging

Many UK property owners are overwhelmed by the ever-developing legislation and new funding mechanisms that form a major part of the UK’s push for energy efficiency.

Infrared thermography is helping to change this by leaving nothing to guesswork or speculation. A single thermal image of a property can visually reveal exactly where heat is escaping and every area of concern within a property. Crucially, it does so in a way that is both highly cost effective and completely non-invasive.

At a time when the wrong refurbishment program could result in legal issues and poor tenant retention rates, an increasing number of properties are being surveyed this way, helping to establish their precise current energy performance and the direction they need to go in.

With this in mind we have produced an indepth article on the technology emphasising its importance in today’s climate.

The paper lists the benefits of thermal imaging in terms of being:

  • Accurate
  • Non-invasive
  • Fast
  • Safe
  • Cost effective
