Either we have a spirit from the other world making mischief or we have nooks and crannies, invisible to the eye, that are causing chill winds in our home, despite all the work we have done on it. I wanted to find out whether we needed an exorcist or something more prosaic: more insulation.
Using a thermal imaging camera that detects areas of hot and cold with startling accuracy, James helps householders find areas of their homes where insulation is missing or joists and beams are creating ”thermal bridges’’ allowing heat to pass to the outside. Thermal imaging has been hailed as the latest technological weapon in the battle against heating bills – but does it work?

What can Thermal Imaging be Used for?
A thermal imaging survey has numerous benefits when applied to the investigation of building damage, structural assessment, or energy efficiency. A thermal imaging survey could be instructed to facilitate the identification of thermal bridging, air leakage or energy loss, discontinuous insulation, water ingress or water damage, structural Defects, to map damp, or simply to map heating or water pipes within floors or walls.
Thermal Imaging surveys are designed to generate a primary or comprehensive picture of the targeted issue, relying upon energy and density differentials. Thermography can be an essential non-destructive technique for anything from predictive maintenance, to non-destructive leak detection. Thermal imaging can help establish a plan for proposed future action or necessary remedial actions without the need to undertake destructive investigative works.
