What is a Thermal Audit?

A thermal audit is an assessment procedure used by energy solution businesses to gauge a building’s thermal performance. It entails the use of sophisticated thermal imaging cameras to take infrared images that show temperature differences across various surfaces. These photos offer important information about regions where heat is lost, poor insulation, air leaks, or broken equipment.

The Role of Thermal Imaging:

Thermal imaging technology plays a pivotal role in conducting accurate and non-invasive assessments during a thermal audit. By detecting temperature differences as small as 0.1°C, these cameras create visual representations of heat patterns that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. This allows auditors to identify potential problem areas quickly and efficiently.

The following are some advantages of thermal audits: 

1. Energy Efficiency Optimisation: By identifying places with insufficient insulation or air leakage, thermal audits give people and companies the ability to make targeted modifications that increase overall energy efficiency. This lowers the cost of heating or cooling as well as the amount of carbon dioxide emitted.

2. Improved Comfort: By removing temperature discrepancies around the structure, locating cold spots or draughts helps to increase interior comfort levels.

3. Preventive Maintenance: Thermal audits can find defective electrical connections or equipment that may be wasting energy or producing too much heat. Future expensive breakdowns can be avoided by early identification and prompt replacement or repair.

4. Reduction of Environmental Impact: Thermal audits help to lessen a building or facility’s total environmental impact by minimizing energy use through better insulation and effective equipment.

5. Cost Savings: By reducing energy costs, lowering maintenance costs, and perhaps qualifying for tax credits or other incentives for energy efficiency, the information learned from a thermal audit can result in significant cost savings.

Our Thermal Audit Process: 

To provide accurate results and specific recommendations, our skilled energy auditors adhere to a detailed procedure:

1. Initial Assessment: We carry out a preliminary analysis of the energy consumption patterns, utility costs, and any particular worries you might have for your building.

2. On-site Inspection: To find problem areas, our team conducts a thorough on-site inspection using infrared thermography cameras and other diagnostic equipment.

3. Data Analysis: To assess the degree of energy loss and inefficiency in your building, we analyze the data that has been gathered.

4. Recommendations: In light of our results, we offer you a thorough report that details steps you should take to increase comfort, save expenditures, and improve energy efficiency
