Article: Reduce Domestic Energy Costs with FLIR Thermal Imaging Tools

The global energy crisis is hitting homes and businesses hard across the UK and Europe, with many people feeling their energy costs are spiraling out of control.

According to the Department for Energy, Business and Industrial Strategy, domestic fuel prices in the UK have increased by 60% compared to 2021. And the recent Business Energy Tracker report from Npower Business Solutions shows that 80% of organisations consider energy to be their biggest threat.

So to keep energy costs as low as possible, residents, homeowners and businesses all need to improve their energy efficiency. But where to start? Many sources of heat and energy leaks are invisible to the naked eye. While you might notice a cold spot, it’s tough to know whether it’s caused by issues with window seals, plumbing leaks, poor insulation, or something else entirely.

That’s why FLIR have developed a wide range of thermal imaging cameras that reveal hidden sources of energy loss. These tools empower you to proactively detect and resolve energy leaks, which can all add up to help you lower bills and increase energy efficiency.

How Thermal Imaging Cameras Help You Find Energy Loss in Your Home

FLIR’s thermal cameras are designed to be affordable and convenient to use. That means you can easily find significant areas of heat loss in your home that are invisible to the naked eye.

This small thermal camera connects to your smartphone, giving you powerful thermal vision in the palm of your hand. A budget and entry level thermal imager, the FLIR ONE is supported by the user-friendly FLIR Home Inspect app, which also offers guidance on what you can do once you’ve identified an issue.

This rugged, pocket-sized thermal imager delivers 19,200 pixels of thermal resolution and can help you identify overheating fuses, find air leaks around windows and doors, track plumbing leaks, and more. The FLIR C5-X connects automatically to the FLIR Ignite cloud for handy and secure image storage.
