Thermal Imaging Survey

Published: 21/02/12

Abertay Housing Association are about to embark on a project to conduct thermal imaging surveys to all of our properties as part of the on-going assessments of the energy efficiency of our properties.

As social landlords we are required by the government to improve the condition of our tenanted properties to meet, what is known as the Scottish Housing Quality Standard.

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed IRT Surveys Ltd as the main contractor carrying out this work. IRT are a Dundee based specialist in this field and we are very much looking forward to working with them during this project.

The survey uses thermal imaging cameras, which visually display heat loss from the building, enabling the surveyor to see where heat is being wasted and to identify areas where the building could be improved.

Infa red does not pass through walls, glass or clothing and no pictures of individuals will be taken. The image below shows what will be seen from the survey :-

IRT will be commencing surveys with effect from Monday 27th February 2012 and this is likely to continue for several weeks. The surveyors will be visiting the areas in the evening as the surveys work better in the dark, but will have identification and branded vans and clothing to help residents identify them.

In the meantime, if you have any further queries or require further information please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Team on 01382 903545.
