The Benefits Of Thermographic Inspections / Surveys

Imagine peering into your building’s hidden layers, uncovering potential issues before they become costly problems. That’s the power of thermal imaging, a cutting-edge technology we harness to provide invaluable insights for homeowners and commercial property owners by offering thermal inspections in Derby and the surrounding area.

Our advanced thermal cameras act like super-powered x-ray glasses, revealing a wealth of information invisible to the naked eye. Think of it as unlocking a secret language written in temperature variations.

Issues which can be discovered include:

  • Moisture
  • Heat Loss
  • Air Leakage
  • Defective Insulation
  • Cold Bridging

Sadly without the use of our expert team and high-quality cameras, all of these issues can often go unnoticed and turn into something much worse.

OUR THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO UNDERSTAND THE ENTIRE PERFORMANCE OF THERMAL LEVELS IN A BUILDING!

Our advanced cameras not only identify potential issues in key areas, but they also unlock significant cost savings and safety benefits.

Forget the hassle of scaffolding and high-risk equipment. Our innovative approach eliminates the need for working at height, dramatically reducing the chance of accidents occurring.

We provide comprehensive inspections, pinpointing critical areas of weakness, heat loss, and water leakage. Whether your roof is flat, sloped, or insulated, we’ve got you covered with our thermal inspections in Derby.

BREEAM Surveys in Derby

If your commercial property in Derby is aiming for BREEAM certification, our team of experienced assessors can guide you through the process.

With over 500 successful BREEAM surveys under our belt, we have a deep understanding of the criteria and the steps required for a smooth and efficient assessment across Derby .

However, prior to a BREEAM survey being carried out, we ask for the following steps to be completed:

The building’s envelopes must be finalised.

Your heating is working and on.

There is a 10˚ C difference between the internal and external temperature difference prior to the survey taking place

The weather is adequate and monitored closely prior to the survey beginning

The building MUST be safe i.e. insulation is correctly installed, no unnecessary thermal bridging, and no unintentional air leaks.

Moisture & Water Leak Inspections in Derby

Water infiltration and moisture build up can significantly impact the lifespan and performance of building materials, fixtures, and fittings, potentially leading to safety and health concerns. Traditional visual inspections may not adequately reveal the presence or extent of these issues.

Our advanced camera technology offers a comprehensive and non-invasive approach to detecting water leaks, moisture intrusion, and even condensation within building structures.

This proactive approach allows for early identification and intervention, potentially mitigating costly repairs and minimising potential safety and health risks.

Our services cater to both commercial and domestic properties in and around Derby. Whether you manage a large office complex or own a residential dwelling, we can provide a detailed and accurate assessment of your building’s condition.

Underfloor Heating Thermal Imaging in Derby

Following the installation and commissioning of a new underfloor heating system, we offer comprehensive surveys to survey its operational performance.

Utilising our advanced thermal imaging cameras, we conduct detailed assessments of the floor surface, identifying any areas requiring attention.

The equipment facilitates analysis of heat distribution, detection of potential leaks hidden beneath the surface, and pinpointing sections experiencing performance issues.

Our surveys are equally applicable to existing systems, providing valuable insights into their functionality, potential leaks, and the precise location of the underfloor heating pipes.

Beyond mere functionality, we go beyond to evaluate the system’s efficiency, ensuring you achieve optimal performance and energy savings.

Air Tightness Testing in Derby

Building a new home or commercial space?

Airtightness is no longer just a bonus feature – it’s a requirement under Building Regulations Part L. Our team of experts is here to guide you through the process, ensuring your project meets regulations and maximises comfort and energy efficiency.

Air tightness is vital as it can majorly affect annual outgoing costs and the quality of life present as a well-sealed structure keeps warm air in during winter and cool air in during summer, reducing energy bills and creating a more comfortable living or working environment. It also prevents drafts, moisture build up, and unwanted noise, leading to a healthier and more peaceful space.

Whilst achieving this can be tricky, we are here to help you. We offer comprehensive air tightness advice throughout the entire design and build process.

From material selection and installation guidance to testing and certification support, we’ll be your trusted partner every step of the way.

Why Thermography?

Thermal imaging is a type of photography which visualises heat which is unseen by the human eye. By using high resolution thermal imaging equipment each image produced is made up of more than 600,000 temperature measurements allowing us to compare large areas and identify even the smallest difference in temperature to highlight possible defects.
