What Is A Heatloss Survey

A heatloss survey is carried out to detect areas of your home that are losing heat through leaks, ill-fitting seals or doors and windows and whether heat is escaping through roofs and walls and wasting expensive energy that you have paid for. With energy prices rising every year, ensuring that your home is not losing this energy is vital to reducing your home energy bills.

Many homes have significant thermal inefficiencies which can be easily and cost effectively improved. By scanning buildings, Homeseal can capture heat loss and evaluate thermal information that can be used to identify where energy is being lost and where and how cost-savings can be made.

How Does It Work?

We attend your property with our specialised equipment and scan the outside of your property to locate areas where heatloss is taking place.

Our detailed infra-red camera can show areas where heat is escaping and can show in detail how much heat is being lost.

In most cases the key areas where your home loses heat are through certain walls, the roof, doors or windows. Our equipment can easily spot these areas and allow us to repair, seal or insulate further to prevent valuable energy escaping. This helps you to keep your home warm and cut down on your energy bills.

What Can Be Done To Stop The Heatloss?

Once we have identified the problem areas of heat loss we supply you with a report that shows exactly where and why the heat is escaping and our recommendations to correct it. This allows you to make an informed decision concerning your options with regard to minimising heat loss and cutting energy consumption.

How Much Could I Save?

Windows & Doors

£ Save per year

Windows lose around 18% of your home’s heat energy. Double glazing can halve heat loss by trapping air as an extra layer of insulation. To minimise costs, you could initially choose to double-glaze rooms where your heating demand is high, such as the living room.

Roof Insulation

£ Save per year

Around 26% of heat is lost through the roof and as loft insulation is relatively cheap, particularly since the government introduced a 50% discount through energy suppliers, it makes sense to start at the top of your house and make the insulation as effective as possible.

Wall Insulation

£ Save per year

Walls lose around one third of all heat from detached houses.  If your home was built from 1920 onwards, the chances are that its external walls are made of two layers with a small gap or “cavity” between them.
