Building Thermal Analysis
If you want to make improvements to the energy efficiency of an existing building a good place to start is with a Thermal Analysis. A Thermal Analysis is a review of the building fabric with a thermal imaging camera to determine how effective the insulation properties of the building elements are and to identify any problem areas. The thermal imaging can be applied to any building element from walls, roof, windows, doors and even the floor. The Thermal Analysis must be carried out by a trained and experienced operator as a good quality thermal imaging camera is a complex piece of equipment and is only as good as the operator who uses it.
Air Tightness Testing
From the 1st July 2008, all new buildings require an air-tightness test. Air leakage is the uncontrolled flow of air through gaps and cracks in the fabric of the building. The way to measure this is by using blower door test equipment. Greener Energy Homes conduct these tests and recommend way to improve or rectify any weaknesses in the structure of the building.
