Thermal Images for Buildings

A building, whether it be a domestic or commercial property can benefit from a building thermal survey. A Forward-Looking Infra-Red Camera (FLIR) can detect a number of building issues that are usually invisible to the naked eye. You can learn more about FLIR cameras here. Your building structure could be suffering from heat loss, water ingress, cold bridging, or defective insulation. Being able to identify these anomalies before it’s too late can help you to maintain your property, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint.

A Thermal Image Survey on your building can map any energy loss, and also locate exactly where this is occurring. Using thermal images in this way can reduce the need for potentially expensive and invasive building works. According to Insulation.org, wet insulation can result in 10 x heat loss as compared to that of dry insulation.

Thermal Imaging Inspections

We use our UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) to inspect every aspect of your building from elevations, roofs, chimney stacks, and windows, we will find any anomalies. The thermal images are then sent through our photogrammetry software using the most modern techniques on RJPG images. This then allows identification of any points of weakness in your building.

Who Can Benefit?

We believe that anyone who pays for energy could benefit from a thermal survey. The earth has limited and precious stocks of fossil fuels, and what is left should not be squandered lightly, especially when a fix is available. FLIR camera systems have helped save millions in wasted energy across the world.

Home Owners: A thermal image of your house can easily identify areas that are costing you money in energy (gas and electricity) escaping from your home. Save £000s each year by repairing any defects that can be identified. You may also find leaks or other water issues on your home that may develop into larger problems com if not rectified at the earliest opportunity.

Facilities Managers: If you look after a large or small building, heat loss can be costing you or your tenants money. Helping identify and fix issues in your building will create happier tenants and reduce your carbon footprint.

Housing Associations: Drone Site Surveys can assist with reports identifying heat loss within your housing stock. We are able to cover huge amounts of your properties in a much speedier time frame than would normally be possible using traditional surveying methods. Reducing heat loss, enabling you to identify properties with issues allows you to become proactive rather than reactive.

What are the Benefits of a Thermal Roof Survey

All roof types can be thermally surveyed and there are benefits to all. Whether flat, pitched, insulated, even metal, thermal imaging can easily identify areas of weakness and water ingress. One of the best features of a thermal roof survey is that they are non-invasive and require no scaffolding or working at height. Roofs should be regularly surveyed, they protect valuable assets below and if your roof has a warranty, it is probably part of the t’s and c’s to get your roof regularly inspected.

Some of the benefits of a thermal roof survey

  • Identify any hidden issues, quickly, safely and accurately
  • Detect standing water or areas of water ingress on flat roofs
  • Get evidential footage before any bad weather
  • Use the aerial imagery to make a claim on your roof insurance

You can, with a thermal survey, identify problems in your roof way before the effects will be seen inside the building.
