Thermal imaging helps detect where heat is escaping, prevents energy waste

Residents in Rose Hill and Iffley, around Oxford, will be able to find out whether heat is escaping from their homes and they’re wasting energy by signing up for a thermal imaging campaign, a news report in the local media was able to reveal.

The Rose Hill and Iffley Low Carbon Hub is set to run its thermal imaging campaign for the second year in January 2015 and is encouraging people to sign their home up.

This year the scheme is particularly targeting people suffering from, or at risk of, fuel poverty.

Members of the group will take pictures of residents’ homes using a special thermal imaging camera, which will show where heat is escaping and wasting energy. The thermal images need to be taken on cold, clear days to effectively show where heat is leaking.

After the photos have been taken and processed, they will be shared during a group event, with home owners receiving advice on how to best tackle the issue of energy efficiency.

Creating specific heat zones for each radiator represents a significant step forward towards achieving a superior level of energy efficiency, and this is specifically where the extensive set of features provided by the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves could really be put to very good use.
