Thermal imaging cameras helping to keep homes warm

West Lindsey District Council's Home Energy Advice Team has bolstered its efforts to address cold homes by integrating thermal imaging cameras into their toolkit. 

With each team member now equipped with this advanced technology, they can identify sources of heat loss in homes that would otherwise remain invisible. This initiative aims to enhance the team's ability to assist residents in keeping their homes warmer, particularly during the colder months.

One of the most effective and economical measures to combat heat loss is draught proofing. With the addition of thermal imaging cameras, the team can now pinpoint areas for improvement with greater precision, ensuring more targeted and efficient solutions for residents.

Matt Lill, Energy Efficient Project Officer at West Lindsey District Council, emphasised the significance of this enhancement. 

He said: 

"The Home Energy Advice team is dedicated to providing guidance on enhancing energy efficiency in homes. Our focus extends to hard-to-treat homes, and residents who are hard to reach, ensuring equitable access to funding and energy-saving measures. 

“From draught proofing to grant funding for air source heat pumps, we offer a range of solutions tailored to individual needs."

Residents interested in support from the Home Energy Advice service, can schedule a home visit by contacting the team on 01427 675199 or via email at
