All the components in a building emit infrared radiation, i.e., heat. Infrared thermographic equipment produces a visualisation of this energy that illustrates the surface temperature of an object. According to the Building Regulations, Approved Documents L1A and L2A, 2010, a building’s fabric “should be constructed to a reasonable quality of construction so that the insulation is reasonably continuous over the whole building envelope”. RSK’s building sciences team undertakes thermographic surveys of buildings to quickly identify areas of high heat loss, which can be the result of poor insulation continuity or air leakage.
