Ecospheric is a sustainability consultancy specialising in domestic & small scale commercial eco retrofit.

Every house is unique, even if identical in structure and condition, it will never be occupied in the same manner. A bespoke approach accounting for occupancy is therefore critical.

We work with homeowners, business owners and developers to establish and prioritise the problems and potential in their properties and support them through the build/renovation process.

Home Energy Assessment with
Thermographics


  • Home Energy Assessment with Thermographics

A HEAT survey is Ecospheric’s principle approach to the renovation of existing buildings, guiding clients through the first steps of the process.

Over the years we have refined our approach for assessing your existing property and creating a bespoke road map for improvement. We use thermographic and moisture sensing equipment to form a holistic picture of how your property is functioning and combine this with an in-depth client lifestyle interview to produce a detailed list of prioritised recommendations. This service includes:-

On site survey and interview

• Client lifestyle interview to understand the occupancy demands on your property as well as your future plans and budget (circa 2 hours).
• Thermographic and moisture mapping survey to capture the necessary data required to properly analyse the existing condition of the property (circa 2 hours).

Presentation and reports

• Bespoke prioritised recommendations with indicative costs (in an editable format).
• Thermographic and photographic presentation.
• Humidity map.
• Itemised window & door analysis.
• HEAT Support Brochure providing a background of knowledge against which our recommendations are formed.

Final follow up interview

After you have had time to digest the reports, a 2 hour follow up meeting provides an opportunity to ask questions, confirm understanding and lead you through the formation of an outline client specification.

Pricing £490 up to 150sqm (£1 p/sqm thereafter). Includes 15 mile round trip (£1 per mile thereafter).

A word from our Director

Sustainability and energy efficiency are important issues, especially for homeowners. Homes contribute 27% of the UK’s total carbon emissions. New build houses are subject to a wealth of regulations to ensure they meet increasingly strict requirements, but this does not tackle the issue of the existing housing stock. This if of greater concern when considering that 85% of today’s housing stock will still be in existence in 2050. While there is a breadth of measures and recommendations from various organisations, there is little information on their practical application. We seek to bridge this gap and provide homeowners with clear advice, tailored to your property. Sustainability is a complicated practice, yet we value our transparency and will never make a recommendation without fully explaining our reasoning.
