Uses thermal imaging to determine the thermal performance of buildings
Infrared thermography is the cience of acquisition and analysis of thermal information from non-contact thermal imaging devices. It identifies heat loss from buildings
BRE offers thermal imaging of building fabric according to BS EN13187 and BRE 176. Our Thermographers hold Level 2 certification in Thermography and we use advanced thermal imaging cameras.
Thermal imaging of building fabric helps to;
- Identify areas of missing/defective insulation
- Identify thermal bridges
- Identify areas at risk from mould and condensation
- Demonstrate compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations
- Provide quality control following the installation of cavity wall insulation
- Satisfy requirements for BREEAM Assessments (Management Man 01: Sustainable procurement ) which states;
- The main contractor accounts for a thermographic survey within the project budget and programme of works.
- Once construction is complete a thermographic survey of the building fabric is undertaken in accordance with the appropriate standard and by a professional holding a valid Level 2 certificate in thermography.
