Check your home heat loss and insulation with a thermal imaging camera

by Mars

Insulation and heat loss are going to become terms and practices we’ll all need to embrace as we strive to lower heating carbon emissions and bills. One of the easiest ways to get a grip on this is to get a heat loss thermal imaging camera.

The fundamentals of this exercise are easy. If you’re leaking heat from your house, you will have to turn up the heating to keep rooms warm and at temperature, which uses more energy. This is especially important if you are using a low flow rate heating system like an air source heat pump and want to keep your running costs low. The opposite also naturally applies. The less heat that leaks out of your home, the less energy you need to keep it warm which cuts your carbon emissions and saves you money.

We would like to thank Octopus Energy for lending us a FLIR ONE thermal imaging camera. It was a truly useful exercise to walk around the house and quickly and easy identify problem areas that we will start patching up in the weeks and months ahead.
