As we approach the budget in the coming months we can be guaranteed that a carbon tax is on the cards. This has been confirmed recently by Brian Cowen. Here at DKEC we are going to outline how infrared thermal imaging can help reduce fuel consumption and beat the dreaded carbon tax. Not only is beating the carbon important but vital, as we may have reached peak oil and the era of cheap oil is over so we must adapt to this the sooner the better.
Infrared thermal imaging is a service provided by DKEC, we have a wealth of experience in the application of this new technology to existing properties. Infrared thermal imaging provides a wealth of information to people such as missing insulation, air infiltration, gaps in the building fabric and faulty windows. Air infiltration is unnoticed coming into the property and therefore property owners don't realize it. However, to compensate for this air infiltration, more energy will be used in order to heat the property and keep this to a comfortable level. Thus, you could have a serious gap in your windows and you would be losing serious money here. An average thermal report is approximately 95 pages and the wealth of information it gives consumers will help in beating the carbon tax and limiting the spend on energy.
