With the days getting colder and darker, it’s times like these we start to use more heat, and therefore; energy. But, just how much is too much exactly? And how do we know if we’re using a lot?
In regards to a lot of commercial buildings, wasting energy can be a problem and the bills can become too expensive. While many different commercial properties come in many different shapes and sizes, it’s always important to think about how much energy you’re actually using, and sometimes wasting.
To start off, you need to find out how your building is wasting energy, and you can do this by using thermal imaging. This basically take a photograph of the heat that’s being generated within your building, showing the exact location of the hot and cold spots. Using thermal imaging is the most accurate way to see what your property is using and how much is being wasted. It also allows you to spot any problems and fix any issues at hand.
Thermal imaging uses a lot of colour so you can spot the heat and any problems easily. These colours include: red, yellow, green, orange, blue and sometimes purple and these count for a lot of different things including:
- Heat loss
- Cool air
- Ventilation issues
- Moisture and water infiltration
- Insulation problems
- Plumbing problems
It’s always best to ring a professional and qualified electrician to come and do this so you can get the best diagnosis. It’s also recommended you call an electrician as commercial buildings are much larger than standard properties and require more work to be done.
