Thermal Imaging – the first step for all retrofits? - Online
Gathering baseline data is an essential first step in planning a retrofit; understanding energy use and heat loss from an existing building is key to defining the next steps in a project.
Thermal Imaging is a fast-track method to gaining the knowledge needed to take remedial action to improve comfort and energy-efficiency, saving money and reducing carbon output along the way.
A non-invasive tool, Thermal Imaging can provide vital data in retrofitting historical buildings, clearly showing problem areas for remedial action such as cold spots, damp, heat loss and thermal bridges.
About the session
Brian Harper and Dave Tudgey of The Cold Homes Energy Efficiency Survey Experts (C.H.E.E.S.E) project join us to explain why an initial thermal survey is the best way to find out where the energy loss issues lie in an existing building, how to interpret thermal imaging output and how to use the data to inform retrofit strategy.
Active participation will be encouraged during the regular Q&A breaks during the event.
