Shropshire Thermal Imaging Aerial Survey

Published: 8th March, 2016

Now you can see the heat loss from your home or business.

An aerial thermal imaging survey of parts of the county has been commissioned by Shropshire Council so that householders and business owners can get a better idea of how well their homes and premises are performing with regard to heat loss.
The fly over has produced a map which can be accessed on the internet. The map gives a heat loss rating for buildings ranging from poor to excellent. Click on the link and take a look at your place: .
The areas covered include: Bishops Castle, Bridgnorth, Church Stretton (including Little Stretton), Market Drayton, Oswestry, Shrewsbury (including Bayston Hill), and Wem.
Marches Energy Agency (MEA) have been appointed to get out and about around the county during March and April to promote the map and to give advice about energy efficiency, home improvements and reducing energy costs.
MEA will be running a roadshow of events where people can view the map and talk about their energy concerns. Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to take away a free home energy monitor.
Phil Newcombe, who is leading on the project for MEA said ‘the aerial heat loss map is a great start point for thinking about how much energy you are using - you can even see how your house compares to others down your street’.
In addition MEA will be doing some targeted door knocking and leafletting to let people know about what support may be available for more vulnerable energy customers.
The Church Stretton event (10 am to 2 pm) is scheduled as follows:
