Insulation missing within the wall cavity
Unintended air leakage paths at the roof soffits
Missing insulation identified during an internal survey
The accuracy and sensitivity of high specification building thermal imaging cameras enables building thermography to be the best non-destructive testing method to assess the continuity of insulation, identify excessive thermal bridges and locate unintended air leakage paths within the fabric of a building. This could be vital in determining what exactly is wrong with the building quickly and efficiently, without creating prolonged ordeal for both the building contractor and building owner. The survey reports are very comprehensive providing excellent detail to thermal anomalies identified within the building, assisting efficient and effective remedial works to be undertaken that enables the building to perform to its designed specification.
Thermographic building thermal imaging surveys to assess the integrity of the building fabric are usually required for one of three reasons...
1. To assist in diagnosing suspected problems with the building fabric or comfort levels:-
Where there are suspected problems with the building fabric such as moisture ingress, condensation and mould growth or where there is the perception that the thermal efficiency isn't what it should be, the use of thermography can provide excellent visual and quantitative evidence of the causes of the suspected problems.
2. To demonstrate compliance with the construction specification on newly constructed buildings:-
Due to Part L of the Building Regulations and sustainability assessments such as BREEAM an increasing number of Building Specifications are including a thermographic survey into the schedule of works as a means of quality assurance and to achieve the required sustainability rating.
3. To identify potential improvements to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions:-
On existing buildings, thermography can be used to assess the overall performance of the individual building fabric elements such that informed decisions can be made on improving energy efficiency. If required, in depth analysis can also be undertaken to estimate the potential cost and CO2 reductions if particular improvements are undertaken.
