Keep the cold outside and the heat inside…! A very quick way to identify whether your home has insulation, draught or damp problems is to use a thermal imaging camera.  The camera loan scheme, run by Cambridge Carbon Footprint, is still available for this winter season until mid-April. Although Bassingbourn has been a host for one camera again (details from last year are {here}), our camera is now fully booked but some other cameras still have availability.

We organised a couple of clinics in February where we took thermal images at different locations around the village. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact us on saving.energy.zcc@gmail.com
