Homeowners gathered for personalised heat-saving advice at last night’s thermal imaging feedback meeting. This winter our team of volunteers have been busy taking thermal images of Witney homes.  We invited the people whose homes have been thermal-imaged this winter to view the images and get energy-efficiency advice tailored to their specific needs.

Dale Hoyland of the National Energy Foundation gave a presentation on how to interpret thermal images. He was on hand afterwards to explain people’s images one-to-one and offer advice on topics such as insulation, fuel-saving and home improvement grants. The rest of the team were also available to chat about energy efficiency measures and offer general advice. Energy-saving household items such as radiator foil, energy monitors and power-down plugs were available to buy.

This winter’s round of Sustainable Witney thermal imaging is now over, but our team of trained volunteers will probably re-start the project in autumn 2014. To add your property to our waiting list, email thermalimaging@sustainablewitney.org.uk . (You don’t have to own the property to get it thermal-imaged, you just have to live there.) Please do also get in touch if you’re interested in helping out with the project next winter – we’re always looking for volunteers.
