Thermal imaging

The thermal imaging of building fabric is covered in a new guide from BSRIA, which replaces the previous edition dating from 2002. It includes updates on Building Regulations, advances in camera technology and improved methods of analysing images. It aims to help people involved in constructing, owning and operating buildings with obtaining the thermal imaging they need and understanding of the information that can be obtained.

Thermal imaging is the best way to assess continuity of insulation or locate air-leakage paths in a completed building, Helping project teams comply with the Building Regulations, specifically Part L, which requires provision to be made to avoid heat loss through the fabric. BREEAM credits are awarded for thermal-imaging surveys of new buildings, providing defects are addressed.
