Leak Detection Surveys
Save money with a heat loss survey
There is an ever increasing concern over the cost of energy, with more increases expected in the near future. Our energy Heat Loss Surveys can save you money. We are being advised that energy costs per household could rise to as much as £3000 per year, and with so many properties not assessed for savings, there are increased levels of unnecessary financial costs and losses.
I wanted a report to see where I was losing heat from my house (or gaining cold). They provided a very comprehensive report with great pictures to show where the problems were. Now just need a well known double glazing company to fix the issues.
We assess the exterior of the property, to ascertain any defects that could be allowing heat loss.
We will undertake a thorough internal survey, in order to ascertain what insulation is currently in place.
We will provide a detailed Heat Loss Survey report of our findings, which will include the following
In order to gain a complete understanding of the property, our detailed survey encompasses the following procedures
Our surveyors will also assess any other elements of insulation and will advise on where insulation can be increased and heat losses can be reduced.
Our qualified Building Surveyors carry out heat loss surveys in your area
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
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.
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.
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
Alpine Surveys heat loss surveys are carried out by qualified building surveyors.
A History of Christchurch in Brief
The town originates from approximately 350 AD.
The church was founded by missionaries sent to Wessex by St Birinus, the first Bishop of Dorchester on Thames and its close proximity to the Cherbourg Peninsula in France made it an important trading port and a potential target for invasion during a number of wars.
Situated on a stretch of raised, and well drained, land at the lowest crossing points of the river Avon and the river Stour, it was originally known as Tweoxneam (Twynham) from Old English betweoxn (between) and éam (rivers).
Christchurch, listed as Twynham, has two entries in the Domesday Book, being part of the Edgegate Hundred, with forty-seven households.
Christchurch’s importance derives from the two rivers which carried people and their wares to and from settlements such as Blandford, and until about 1735 boats of up to 25 tons were able to travel up the river Avon as far as Salisbury.
