Salford Council aims for a cooler image

Salford City Council has implemented thermal imaging technology to identify houses with poor insulation.

The system, from aerial imaging and remote sensing specialist BlueSky, shows which houses have the greatest heat loss. The system will help the council target its programmes to insulate houses and will help to raise awareness of energy efficiency.

Another benefit of the system is that it will identify houses with a lower relative temperature, in which residents may need support to adequately heat their home.

"The intelligence afforded by the BlueSky thermal survey data enables us to effectively target our activities and resources. We can identify specific vulnerable properties from the desktop, and offer advice, practical support and grants," said councillor Peter Connor.
