Heat Loss and Air Tightness Detection
Ever increasing energy costs are having a profound affect on how much it is costing building owners to heat and cool commercial and residential buildings. Heat loss due to poor insulation and air tightness accounts for huge amounts of wasted energy in buildings.
What are the symptoms?
- Heating/cooling energy bill is high for the type and size of building
- Building is draughty
- Condensation on walls and windows
- Rapid decrease in temperature once heating system has been turned off
- Rooms failing to reach target temperature
A heat loss and air tightness survey will need to be carried out using sophisticated equipment and methods to pin‐point where thermal energy heat) is being lost from your building. Normally infra‐red (thermography) will be used to survey your building and determine where thermal energy is being lost.
