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.

If you’d like to buy the FLIR ONE thermal imaging camera you can shop for them here: https://amzn.to/3MMNGjf

I left a comment at YouTube for this video. I know you review the comments before you allow them to be displayed, but I haven’t seen the comments on this video in over a week. Then I noticed that several of your videos only had one or even no comments. Are you just getting overwhelmed?

My fear is that I missed some new policy by your channel that you are only accepting comments at your website.

Please give me an update.

That is extra strange because I spent a lot of time working on that comment and I remember I even went back and edited and saved it several times. I hope that is not lost because it had several ideas and thoughts that I thought your audience would find valuable.

Going back through your YouTube videos, it looks like the problem with comments started on your Feb. 15th video. Before that you had about 15 or more comments on each video.

They may be getting marked as SPAM…
I have been using a VPN, but I don’t know if YouTube is looking at that as Spam.

Fantastic post. Thermal imaging cameras have a plethora of different benefits to them, one of them is as stated in this post, the ability to point out insulation issues within a home.
