Thermal Image UK: Thermal Imaging and Air Tightness Testing in Scotland and across the UK

Our core services are building thermography and air tightness testing. Thermography identifies energy loss caused by missing or defective insulation, air leaks, moisture penetration and thermal bridging. We provide you with an interpretation of the images that can help inform maintenance and investment decisions. Air Tightness Testing provides a compliance check against new building standards, or can be used independently as an energy efficiency check as outlined below.

Thermography inspections, thermal imaging surveys

We also respond to client requests on a range of other infrared applications, including flat roof leaks and underfloor heating checks. If you have a specific request or would like more information please get in touch using the contact details below.

Air tightness testing surveys, Air leakage testing

Either combined with an infrared survey or on its own, an air tightness test (air permeability test) using a blower door fan(s) can identify the location and cause of costly air leaks - e.g cracks, joints, service pipes etc. These can result in significant loss of energy in a building, and can often be the most cost effective problems to resolve. Call us on 01357 520557 to discuss how we can help you reduce energy loss.

Air Tightness Testing Scotland

All our surveys are carried out by Certified Level 2 Thermographers so you are assured of a professional and standardised approach.

All our building surveys are carried out in accordance with British Standard BS EN13187:1999 Thermal performance of buildings - Qualitative detection of thermal irregularities in building envelopes - Infrared method.

Quantifying Energy Loss using thermal imaging

 An estimation of energy loss through a wall can theoretically be derived where the inside and outside surface and air temperatures and the thermal properties of the wall are known. However the accuracy of any such calculation is disproportionately affected by small but unavoidable temperature measurement errors, by anomalies within the wall itself and by the weather. Our approach is to use thermography to locate anomalies within a wall or other parts of the building envelope, and to quanitify energy loss in other ways. This is consistent with BS EN13187:1999
