Sidmouth Town Council is also doing its bit:
The Town Council is working to help residents save heat and save money. The bonus is it cuts down on CO2 emissions. With energy bills rising and concerns about climate change, no one wants to waste energy from their house, but that is what we all end up doing.
With the local press reporting further:
Thermal image cameras reveal where your precious home heat is escaping, and then you can decide how to make things better and Sidmouth Town Council is offering a free thermal scan of your house if you live in the Sid Valley.
A Sidmouth Town Council spokesperson said: “We as a town can reduce our emissions if we all as residents work to reduce ours individually. The council has purchased an infra-red camera and is offering residents of the Sid Valley an opportunity to have a thermal image photo taken of their house to show where you are losing precious warmth. We have a small team of volunteers who will visit interested householders to take photos, and these will be emailed to you. With an infra-red camera, you can literally see where the heat is escaping.”
