A sustainability group is offering people thermal shots of their homes so that they can see how heat efficient they are.

The Energy Reduction Project by Tring in Transition is for anyone in the town and surrounding villages, in return for a £15 donation. It is free for people in fuel poverty.

Volunteers will conduct a thermal imaging survey to help people discover what is causing heat loss from their homes and community buildings, and show them how to reduce this.

Sources of grants are provided where relevant. The project runs from mid-November to late March each year, and surveys are carried out in the evenings.

Councillor Christopher Townsend, who represents the Tring West and Rural ward on Dacorum Borough Council, is having it done at his home in February.

He said: “I think this sort of grass roots thing is a great way of encouraging people to be more aware of how good insulation can help save money.

“It’s a small step towards preserving energy.”
