Council using thermal imaging to identify inefficient homes

West Lindsey District Council’s will be using thermal imaging cameras as part of its work to identify cold homes.

The council’s home energy advice team will use the technology to find sources of heat loss in homes that would otherwise remain invisible. This initiative aims to enhance the team’s ability to assist residents in keeping their homes warmer, particularly during the colder months.

With the addition of thermal imaging cameras, the team can now pinpoint areas for improvement with greater precision, ensuring more targeted and efficient solutions for residents.

Matt Lill, Energy Efficient Project Officer at West Lindsey District Council, said:

The Home Energy Advice team is dedicated to providing guidance on enhancing energy efficiency in homes. Our focus extends to hard-to-treat homes, and residents who are hard to reach, ensuring equitable access to funding and energy-saving measures.

From draught proofing to grant funding for air source heat pumps, we offer a range of solutions tailored to individual needs.
