Thermal image cameras reveal where your precious home heat is escaping, and then you can decide how to make things better and Sidmouth Town Council is offering a free thermal scan of your house if you live in the Sid Valley.
The Town Council is working to help residents save heat and save money & cut down on CO2 emissions.
With energy bills rising and concerns about climate change, no one wants to waste energy from their house, but that is what we all end up doing.

With an Infra-Red camera, you can literally see where the heat is escaping, in a thermal image, yellow shows hotter areas and pink/purple the cooler areas.
As we all know, keeping a house warm is expensive and wasting heat is wasting money. Also, no matter how your home is heated, wasting heat causes extra CO2 emissions, and that is bad for our nature, our valley, and our world.
Sidmouth Town Council has an Environment Policy that wants to make Sidmouth a low carbon town. We as a town can reduce our emissions if we all as residents work to reduce ours individually. We therefore want to help you reduce your carbon emissions, but we also want to help you save money.
The Council has purchased an Infra-Red camera and is offering residents of the Sid Valley an opportunity to have a thermal image photo taken of their house to show where you are losing precious warmth. We have a small team of volunteers who will visit interested householders to take photos, and these will be emailed to you.
What you do next will be up to you. We cannot fix your home, but there are Government grants to help. There is plenty of advice already available on ways of improving your home insulation, if you know where the biggest heat loss is, you can focus your attention and money where it can be most effective.
If you are interested in having a photo taken, please email Sidmouth Town Council at firstname.lastname@example.org to make contact with our volunteer team.
