Vancouver To Use Thermal Imaging To Cut Energy Costs

Vancouver launch delayed thermal imaging programme to reduce energy costs.

Canadian city Vancouver will launch the delayed thermal imaging pilot programme to identify older homes that are wasting energy.

Vancouver is hoping to follow the blueprint left by areas such as Calgary, Detroit and London and use thermal imaging to help homes find where and how they can improve their energy efficiency.

The programme was originally planned to begin in February last year, but was delayed due to the transit referendum.

It is possible that the programme could begin from January 15, subject to weather conditions.

“We’ll target homes that are built generally 1950 and before insulation was part of our building code because there are many homes 1950 and before that have no insulation in the walls,” said Chris Higgins, green building planner at the City of Vancouver, back in February 2016.

It has recently been revealed that energy efficient homes create jobs and home energy efficiency is key to tackling climate change.

Duly, the thermal imaging programme employed by Vancouver could be hugely productive.
