Thermography helps to record the thermal properties of a building or object. Stroma Tech can conduct thermographic surveys to improve heating efficiency.
Thermography is a diagnostic technique increasingly utilised for surveying and recording the thermal properties of a building or object. A thermographic survey will detect infrared energy emitted and convert it to a temperature. This thermal imaging data is colour coded via individual pixels and displays an image of the object.
Thermographic surveys can be used by contractors to demonstrate that their building does not suffer from excessive cold bridging, air leakage or breaks in insulation. It is increasingly being used as an alternative to regular third party inspections during construction.
Thermographic surveys can also identify areas for potential improvement, minimising heat loss and energy wastage and reducing running costs and carbon emissions.
Stroma Tech conducts thermographic surveys, using sophisticated thermal imaging cameras. All works are carried out in accordance with recognised methodologies such as:
We can use thermography to accurately analyse thermally adjusted images and identify structural flaws, material weaknesses or installation errors.
We undertake thermographic surveys suitable for both residential and commercial requirements to ascertain the causes of heat fluctuations and achieve effective heating efficiency.
Thermography and the use of thermally adjusted images identifies potential problems with energy efficiency. They provide a multitude of benefits for Commercial and Domestic properties:
A thermographic survey will help to identify instances of thermal bridging, which causes instability in internal temperatures. Thermal imaging produces conclusive data which highlights the key thermal bridging anomalies of the building.
Finding and addressing the occurrences of thermal bridging helps to stabilise internal temperatures and reduces a building’s energy consumption. Thermal bridging also forms part of the compliance requirement within Part L of the Building Regulations.
