Borrow a thermal camera
We have purchased thermal imaging cameras which can be borrowed from libraries so you can find out exactly where your home is losing energy. The easy-to-use cameras allow you to inspect your home with infrared technology to find insulation and heat loss problems around your home.
Using the camera to help you identify home improvements may help you stay warmer in winter and cooler during the summer period.
Common culprits for heat loss include:
- exterior outlets (letterboxes)
- connections to the outside of your home such as cables or plumbing fixtures
You need to be a library member to borrow a thermal camera.
The thermal imaging cameras are not currently available to borrow as they are not effective at measuring heat loss in warmer weather. They will be available again from October 2023, with priority for people who are already on the waiting list.
