The London borough of Haringey has developed a “Home Heat Loss” program, and has paid for an aerial thermal survey to show residential energy efficiency.

In a typical British home, around one-third of the heat produced by a central heating system is rapidly lost through the roof, ceiling and walls.

The London borough of Haringey has developed a “Home Heat Loss” program, and, as part of this initiative, has paid for an aerial thermal survey to show residential energy efficiency.

The thermal image was taken during the night of March 16, 2007, by BlueSky International Ltd. and was overlaid with a local map of the neighborhood to quickly identify which homes are energy efficient and which are not.

An interactive map is available here. Basically, the bluer the house, the more efficient it is. Those in the red are displaying higher power/energy waste.

“The sole aim of the project is to assist residents with properly insulating their properties,” the Haringey Council reports on its website.
