Independent Heat Loss Surveys in Poole Dorset


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

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.

What is a Heat Loss Survey?

  • A heat loss survey can detect heat loss through the cavity walls
  • Check the suitability of the insulation within the cavity walls, if fitted
  • Check the effectiveness and efficiency of the loft/roof insulation
  • Ensure that you have an 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.

CUSTOMERS REVIEWS FROM CHECKATRADE

Heat Loss Survey

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.

EXTERNALLY 

We assess the exterior of the property, to ascertain any defects that could be allowing heat loss.

  • In the South we will also undertake Aerial Thermography, weather and location depending.
  • Where required we will undertake a cavity survey, in order to check for insulation, or ascertain the condition of the insulation.

INTERNALLY 

We will undertake a thorough internal survey, in order to ascertain what insulation is currently in place.


  • We will undertake Thermal Imaging throughout the property or rooms of concern, in order to ascertain cold areas, damp areas, or locations where there is cold air ingress.
  • We will assess the roof space in order to understand the current level of insulation.
  • We will assess all other insulation that is present on the walls, or beneath the floors.
