HEAT LOSS SURVEYS

We determine weak spots in structures where heat loss occurs & test the efficiency of your insulation.

    A detailed comprehensive Heat Loss Surveys report along with recommendations is provided after completion

    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.

    In order to gain a complete understanding of the property, our detailed survey encompasses the following procedures

    External Assessment:

    • Full detailed external assessment of the property is undertaken to assess deterioration that will increase the risk of energy loss. This includes the roof and elevations.
    • The structure type is ascertained, along with confirmation if cavity insulation is present
    • The windows and doors are assessed for condition and defects
    • Thermal Imaging is undertaken in order to confirm areas of heat loss
    • A cavity inspection is undertaken if required to confirm the presence of insulation, or to check the insulation

    Internal Assessment:

    • The roof space is assessed for insulation and the levels of insulation
    • Thermal Imaging is undertaken to confirm areas of cold air ingress
    • Thermal Imaging is undertaken to assess the spread of cavity insulation if present
    • The windows and doors are assessed internally
    • Underfloor insulation is assessed

    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.

    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 Domestic & Commercial Buildings, Including,

    • A building that is 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?

    Alpine Surveys heat loss surveys are carried out by qualified building surveyors.
