Thermal imaging cameras have lots of practical uses including detecting:

  • missing insulation in your home,
  • draughts,
  • moisture defects,
  • thermal bridges in buildings
  • and electrical faults.

Guildford Borough Council and Ecopare will be running a training session on how to use and interpret information when using the thermal imaging camera to survey your home in Guildford town centre on Thursday 12 October at:

  • 5pm
  • 7pm (both sessions will last approx 1hr).

The course is free to attend and booking is essential. After completing the training you will be able to book and use Guildford Borough Council's thermal imaging camera to survey your own home.

How does a thermal imaging camera work?
The camera detects radiation in the infrared range, as infrared radiation is emitted by all objects it means it is possible to view your home using the thermal imaging camera with or without visible light. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; thermography allows you to see variations in temperature. When viewed through a thermal imaging camera, warm objects stand out well against cooler backgrounds, this allows the camera to be used to survey a property for draughts or missing insulation, for example.


Thermal imaging mapping
Guildford Borough Council conducted an aerial heat loss survey using thermal imaging in December 2014 and January 2015. The survey enables residents to gain an indication of how much heat is lost from their house, to view your property please visit: https://www.guildford.gov.uk/energysavingadvice
