What are the benefits of having a Thermographic Survey?

A thermographic survey uses thermal imaging cameras which is are important tool used to assess the energy efficiency of a property. It can be used to identify areas where heat is being lost, or where there are drafts that could be causing problems. This type of survey is especially useful for landlords, independent investors, builders, and developers who want to make sure their properties are as energy-efficient as possible.

Home energy efficiency surveys are a great way to understand where your property might be losing heat. In addition to our standard survey, we offer other services that can be selected individually or combined into a comprehensive work scope tailored to your needs.

Thermal Imaging Surveys for Part L Compliance is the only practical method for checking a completed building for its compliance with Building Regulations Part L. This part of the building regulations identifies the required performance of the insulation systems in the walls, floor and roof of any new building. Thermal Imaging for Part L Compliance is an essential tool for any landlord, builder, developer or architect who wants to ensure their buildings meet the required standards.

Thermographic Surveys / Thermal Image Surveys will detect:

  • lack of insulation (small or large areas)
  • air leakage paths
  • poorly installed insulation
  • poorly sealed/leaky windows
  • poorly sealed/leaky doors
  • heat loss areas through flooring either due to lack of insulation, damaged solid floors, poorly fitted suspended flooring etc
  • leaking pipes
  • heating system not getting to temperature/poor radiators
Thermographic Surveys:
Frequently combined with the following additional services:
BREEAM Assessment
SBEM Calculation - (New Build - Non-Domestic)
Air Pressure Testing
Sound Testing
Acoustic Design Service - Desktop Based
Fire Risk Assessment
Noise Impact Assessments

What is a Thermographic Survey?

Thermal imaging, thermal video and infrared thermography are all excellent ways to detect variations in temperature. By using a thermal imaging camera, you can quickly and easily identify warm objects against cooler backgrounds – things not always easy to detect by the human eye.

This technology is increasingly sought after within the building construction industry, as it provides an instant non-disruptive image of a building fabric which can identify uncontrolled air leakage pathways, cold bridging and insulation issues.

Why have a Thermographic Survey?

Focus 360 Energy specialises in residential and commercial thermal imaging surveys. A thermographic survey will help improve the thermal comfort and energy efficiency of properties by identifying areas where air temperature is being lost. Implementing the findings of a thermographic survey can save money on future energy bills and significantly reduce a building’s carbon footprint.

We offer both an internal and external imaging survey to provide a comprehensive understanding of a property’s thermal performance.

Circular Economy Statement

Thermographic surveys for BREEAM

BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for buildings. It sets standards for new build, refurbishment and operation of buildings, and is used throughout the world.

To assess a building for BREEAM, thermographic surveys are carried out to identify any areas of heat loss. This information is then used to improve the energy efficiency of the building, and ultimately help it achieve a higher BREEAM rating.

Focus 360 Energy offer thermographic surveys as part of our comprehensive range of energy assessment services. Our experienced team will carry out a thorough survey of your building, and provide you with a detailed report outlining any areas of heat loss.

A great way to understand how your building is performing

As we can see, a thermographic survey can be an extremely useful tool in identifying potential problems with your home or business. By having a professional survey conducted, you can be sure that you are getting the most accurate information possible to help make informed decisions about your property.

If you are interested in learning more about thermographic surveys or getting a quote for one, please contact us today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you get the information you need.

If you want to get the most accurate thermal imaging, it’s best to do it in cold weather, usually between November and April so our thermal imaging camera can detect the heat leaving your building. The best times of day to do it are early in the morning or late afternoon/evening.

This is because surfaces need to be free of direct sunlight for at least four hours before thermal imaging can be done.

Our thermographic survey includes a detailed examination of the problems found by our technical team, along with thermal images taken as evidence. We’re committed to ensuring that you have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your home’s comfort and safety.
