Interleuven works with local municipalities to deliver thermal imaging projects. Taking thermal images, or infrared photos, of homes before installing insulation or other means of reducing heat loss provides a useful record of baseline energy performance. Thermal images are used to provide a very visual presentation of baseline energy performance to residents, highlighting where and how much energy is being lost from their home. Residents are given expert advice on the various options available to reduce this energy loss highlighted and guidance on possible subsidies. If a resident orders some insulation works, a new thermal image is taken after these changes have been made, which is then compared with the baseline image in order to demostrate the reduced heat loss.
