Heat Loss Survey London
Do you need a heat loss survey undertaken in London?
A heat loss survey utilises thermal imaging equipment to identify any potential number of structural defects that can lead to the loss of heat, by showing where air, and therefore heat, is leaking out of a given structure. Thermal images can be taken both internally and externally to show a clear methodology of how a property is losing thermal energy.
Why do I need a Heat Loss Survey?
The initial survey is non-destructive in nature and can provide a clear evaluation of a structure’s heat efficiency, and advise on any appropriate actions for improvements where any loss of heat is located. If you worry over the rising costs of your heating bills, feel cold draughts, or your property is not heating properly.
Or, if you simply wish to evaluate the effectiveness, or quality & efficiency, of your insulation, to commercial concerns of environmental impact such as the lowering of your carbon footprint, then a heat loss survey could be a wise precaution to help you solve your problems and save money in the long run.
What do I get with a Heat Loss Survey?
This report will provide you with a series of thermal imaging photographs, both of the inside and outside of your property, detailing surface temperature measurements and thermal dissipation. This will be accompanied by a full written report of the professional opinion of the surveyor as to the level of heat loss and if any remedial actions are required.
With a comprehensive picture of this loss on your property, you may be provided with a number of points of interest where improvements can be made. Whether that be installation or improvement of your existing insulation, repairs to failures in walls and junctures, or the replacement of aged and inefficient appliances.

I contacted James de Miguel after a recommendation from a friend. My brand new house developed a series of cracks on the exterior walls and after numerous failed attempts by local builders, surveyors and even the original architect, to try and identify the cause of these cracks I had no clue what to do next. Thankfully, James was able to identify the exact cause of the issues and handed me a detailed report on what had caused the cracking and the next steps to take in order to remedy them. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
I have been working with James de Miguel for a few years now and can honestly say that I have not come across a more savvy surveyor when it comes to fault finding. James is switched on, his reports are always on time and he has never failed to deliver. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking a definitive answer as to what exactly is going wrong with their building. I now consult with James on all projects I undertake as his input is vital to the success of my projects. A big thank you to James and his team.
I have been building houses for over 10 years and from time to time, new builds develop faults that can be tricky to trace. We brought in James de Miguel to provide us with a report on where we were going wrong with a rather complicated new build that involved a basement that was allowing water ingress. Within half an hour of being on site James and his colleagues identified the issues and provided the exact steps to fix them. Without his survey, I feel we would of been chasing our own tails for days if not weeks, trying to find out why we had so much water ingress. James has saved us time and money and we are very grateful that we found him.
