Are your energy bills higher than expected?

A free thermal imaging course for local residents on Wednesday 23 January, run by Guildford Borough Council, could be the answer.

A thermal imaging camera can help detect insulation defects, air leaks, electrical faults and moisture in your home. The camera detects infrared radiation and produce images called thermograms. When viewed through a thermal imaging camera, warm objects stand out against cooler backgrounds.

The course will explain how to use the camera and offer attendees the opportunity to book one to survey their own home.

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 Places are only available for Guildford Borough residents.

If you have any questions about the course, please contact the GBC Climate Change team on 01483 444509.
