Thermal imaging cameras

Did you know that heat loss can account for a signficant proportion of total energy consumption in a building from air leakage through chimneys, wall vents or badly sealed doorways?

Library members can now borrow a thermal imaging camera - for free! -as part of our Library of Things. 

Infrared cameras can help detect energy loss through air leaks, insufficient insulation, water damage on roofs and other building defects that mean the building is not as energy efficient as it could be. Thermal imaging cameras and inspections can be quite expensive, now the local community has access to sturdy, reliable and easy-to-use cameras to complete thermal imaging inspection of their own homes - for free! This can help start process to be more energy efficient and sustainable in daily life.

You can place a reservation on the library catalogue. 

These cameras are available thanks to a Surf Coast Shire grant and a City of Greater Geelong grant.
