Thermal Imaging: Unlocking the Secrets to an Energy Efficient Home

Thermal imaging has become an invaluable tool to assess and detect areas of heat loss in a home to help increase energy efficiency. To this end, Ignite Property Group offer comprehensive thermal imaging services for homes of all ages. Contrary to popular belief, even new builds are not exempt from insulation issues, making a heat loss survey essential for any homeowner. Within this blog, we will delve into the intricacies of thermal imaging, how it works and why investing in a professional service from Ignite Property Group can make a substantial difference to your home’s insulation. 

Understanding Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging essentially operates on the principle that every object with a temperature above absolute zero will emit infrared radiation. Thermal imaging cameras capture these infrared emissions to provide a detailed visual representation of temperature variations. This allows us to identify gaps in insulation, such as air leaks and other inefficiencies, that otherwise may go unnoticed. 

Optimal Time for a Thermal Imaging Survey

Generally speaking, thermal imaging surveys are best carried out at night. This doesn’t have anything to do with the surrounding environment being light or dark but most importantly, the core temperature of a home is predominantly cooler at night so areas of contrast are easier to identify. 

Insulation Issues in New Builds

It’s fair to say that when buying a newly built property, many would assume that they would be insulated flawlessly. In reality, this can be quite a different situation. At Ignite Property Group, we recognise that there are many construction imperfections and poor insulation practices which can result in insulation issues in a home, regardless of its age. Through a heat loss survey, one of our expert team members can provide you with a detailed report to enable homeowners to address any issues promptly and efficiently.  

The Ignite Advantage: Comprehensive Thermal Imaging Services

The advantage of hiring a trained professional to assist with your heat loss assessment is that not only do our team utilise state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras, but we are able to accurately read the images so that you are provided with a detailed report to rectify any problems accurately without spending money in areas that might not necessarily require additional attention.
