Building Heat Loss Surveys

Building Heat Loss Surveys

A Heat Loss Survey On Your Property Could Save You A Small Fortune.

With so many homeowners concerned about the rising costs of energy prices, anything that can be done to save wasted heat from your property is going to keep more money in your pocket and one of our Building Heat Loss Surveys could certainly achieve this. 

Energy prices are at an all time high and appear to be rising further still. With a heat & energy loss survey, our equipment can identify areas of your property that are quite literally throwing money (heat) away.

What Does A Heat Loss Survey Tell Me?

  • A heat loss survey can detect heat loss through the cavity walls
  • Check the suitability of the insulation with the cavity walls if fitted
  • Check the effectiveness and efficiency of the loft / roof insulation
  • Ensure that you have adequate thickness of insulation within the property
  • Locate and detect areas of increased thermal escape, for example, windows, doors and walls
  • Provide advice on how to reduce heat loss by as much as 50%, potentially reducing your heating costs by just as much.

What Equipment Do We Use?

Using the latest in Flir Thermal Imaging technology with MBX, we are able to view not only heat pools within your property, but also cold pools.

Buildings can be thoroughly scanned using our Flir Thermal Imaging camera, identifying problem areas that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Thermal Imaging can facilitate repairs quickly and thoroughly, and is much more cost effective than other conventional methods that can be intrusive.

We utilise the very best, and specifically designed cameras for building inspections, the Flir Ebx models. The cameras are specifically designed for building inspections such as moisture detection, leak detection, insulation problems and much more.

We also use the DJI Mavic Enterprise Thermal Imaging Drone, which, produces thermal representations of your roof and walls and identifies major heat loss areas that you would never of known existed without this amazing technology.

Our Surveys Are Undertaken On All Buildings, Including,

  • Buildings that are being purchased
  • All listed buildings
  • Places of worship and churches
  • Community centres and village halls
  • Schools and universities
  • Cinemas and theatres
  • Hospitals
  • Buildings of all ages
  • Buildings currently being developed or renovated
  • Peace of mind surveys for current owners

Energy Efficiency Grants And Support Schemes

There are currently a number of government and energy supplier grants and funding available. Some will provide free upgrades to your insulation within your home, others offer to install cavity wall insulation.

It pays to do some research and find out if there is any help and support available to you.

Alpine Surveys Are Totally Independent

Once Alpine Surveys have provided a report detailing the current heat loss from your property you should then consult a builder to carry out the works needed to reduce the loss of heat. In many cases, this could be a simple DIY project involving installing another layer of insulation within the roof.

Will I Get A Detailed Report?

You will receive a detailed Heat Loss Survey Report of our surveyors findings. Within the Heat Loss Survey Report, there will be recommendations to reduce the loss of energy from your property, detailed explanations and images of any concerns illustrating any issues picked up by the thermal imaging camera

Are Your Surveyors Qualified?

All our building and heat loss surveys are carried out by qualified building surveyors.
