Combined Energy Report

Thermography Plus

 Air Tightness Testing

When we Combine TWO powerful technologies we end up with ONE VERY POWERFUL tool!

 

Combining our Building Air Tightness and Thermography Technology we can produce a report on your buildings current Thermal Performance.

The Report  is produced as a supplement to the  Air Tightness Test where we leave the 'Blower Door' fan running at a set speed and inspect the building with our thermal infrared camera.

 

The camera records two images,

One Visual that our eyes can see

One Infrared that our eyes can't see

 

In the visual photo we can identify where about in the building the image was taken 

Locate the problem/s and make suggestions to repair

In the infrared picture we see a pattern, a pattern where the surface temperature indicates that an underlying problem may exist.

With knowledge of the structure behind the surface we can understand what may be causing the anomaly and make suggestions for rectification.

Our report presents you with these paired images with suggestions for the effective repairs of the problem

During our Energy Report inspection we can identify the 3 causes of high energy use.

A - Air Leakage - Unwanted draughts - air enters or leaves the building

B - Wind Washing - (Thermal Bypass) -  where energy is leaking due to air flow behind the internal surfaces and through or around  any insulation material (through fibers and around insulation board)

C - Thermal Bridging - Where energy leaks directly through the structure. We can quickly locate poor or missing insulation

Each one of the above adds to your energy usage - increasing your Heating or Cooling Costs

Finding the problem Air Leaks is our skill

Benefits to you

We normally provide this service to clients wishing to  install an Air Source Heat Pump, but our view is anyone can benefit from preventing heat loss -

and should be conducted BEFORE replacing ANY heating system

following the advice in the report could lead to:-

  • Potentially smaller equipment size requirement for equipment, lower capital cost

  • Lower heating bills due to less heat loss - On-going savings

  • Better performance from ventilation system

  • Reduced chance of Condensation and Mould

  • Fewer draughts (maybe eliminated)

  • Much Improved Comfort Conditions with steady internal temperatures

  • Lower noise transmission from outside

  • Reduced cleaning  due to less air borne dust/dirt 

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality

  • Building is Quicker to heat up & Slower to cool down

The cost of this report can be paid for by the savings on smaller equipment and savings on future running costs
