Posted By: TimberMost BCOs don't have the time or knowledge to get into this type of detail.
Posted By: SilverSprayI guess one solution to a lot of these very valid points is to compare one house to one of similar construction that is next to it !- but that might not be possible !
Posted By: SilverSprayOf the three kinds of heat loss, conductive, convective and radiant, it’s radiant that makes the pretty colored windows and walls (and is the most expensive to fix) , but it is convective, through air leaks, that causes the most heat loss. How do you measure leaky ducts vs leaky walls?
Posted By: rhamduOf course, a good BCO's aim is to nip trouble in the bud. Heat cameras will only reveal faults when it's probably too late to rectify them easily. Clients denied signoff, builders getting sued or hauled back to tear a finished building apart... it's not ideal.
Posted By: Ed Davies¹ Why does my spellchecker accept “hotspots” but flag “coldspots”?
Posted By: tonyinsulation and better detailing
Posted By: SilverSprayso an objective way to measure the current and on-going efficiency of the building and to place this responsibility with the builder(s) seems a good idea
Posted By: SteamyTeaThe second bit will involve a court case and will not save anything as builders, just like the rest of us, place a higher value on cash today than cash tomorrow.
