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.”
