Thermal imaging


With the thermometer hovering around freezing, today was deemed a good day to try out Transition Town Cheltenham's new thermal imaging camera on our house. We therefore had the benefit of Matthew and Mike's expertise for two hours or more, while they pointed the lens this way and that, showing up where our warm air was disappearing faster than it should.

Tips we particularly noted: secondary glazing is more cost effective than brush strips around the sash windows. And we should put a silver foil panel behind our one radiator which is on an outside wall.

Ida enjoyed seeing the chickens photographed by the infrared camera!
