Thermal imaging courses to keep the cold at bay

THERMAL imaging to detect cold spots and insulation defects in your home are being offered by Guildford Borough Council.
As wintry weather takes a grip, the council is running a course will allow residents to use a thermal imaging camera to survey their own property.
The camera detects infrared radiation and produce images called thermograms. When viewed through a thermal imaging camera, warm objects stand out against cooler backgrounds.
Cllr Matt Furniss, Lead Councillor for Environment says: "As energy bills continue to rise, the importance of saving energy increases. Thermal imaging cameras are a great way to identify any problem spots in your home, so you can address any issues, helping to reduce your carbon footprint and potentially save some money."
Twenty places are available on the course which runs from 7pm-9pm. To book, visit www.eventbrite.co.uk/event/4820619603. Places are only available for residents who live in the borough.
