FAQs

Please note however that if you attend a Harpenden information session you will need to collect and return the camera in Harpenden and similarly for the St Albans camera.

4. When will I be able to borrow the camera?

You will be able to book a date to borrow the camera at the information session. Typically, the camera is collected early one morning and returned early the next morning. You will also be able to contact us to borrow the camera again at future dates, for example if you have made changes to your house and would like to see the impact of those changes.

Places at the sessions are limited so please email thermal.imaging@sustainablestalbans.org to let us know. We will then be able to offer your place to someone else.

8. What is Sustainable St Albans

Sustainable St Albans is a charity (no 1173118), run by volunteers, which encourages people to do local, practical things to live more sustainably.

9. Who funded the Sustainable St Albans cameras?

Sustainable St Albans has two thermal imaging cameras that residents can borrow. The first camera is based in Harpenden and was made possible with the help of a localities budget grant from Teresa Heritage, Herts County Councillor in 2014.

Building on the popularity of the Harpenden camera during the winters of 2014/15 and 2015/16, in March 2016 Sustainable St Albans was successful in obtaining localities budget grants for a second camera from Herts County Councillors Geoff Churchard (Sandridge), Robert Prowse (St Albans East) and Sandy Walkington (St Albans South). This second camera is based in various locations around the City and District of St Albans.

10. Will my personal data be retained?

Your contact details will be retained in order for us to contact you when you borrow the camera. We also retain a list of people who have attended information sessions, so that if you contact us to borrow the camera again, or next winter, you can borrow again without attending another information session. You can ask us to delete your contact details at any point by sending an email to info@sustainablestalbans.org. You can view our Privacy Policy on our website.

11. Any other queries?

You can contact the thermal imaging camera volunteers by emailing: thermal.imaging@sustainablestalbans.org
