How Heat Loss Measuring Supports Low-Carbon Heating

Build Test Solutions has created a guide on how heat loss measuring supports low-carbon heating. There is never a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to low-carbon heating. Training, measurement and software innovations are needed to help identify the most suitable heating technology for a given situation.

The purpose of this guide is to help installers, manufacturers and the wider industry understand what technology and upskilling are required to meet the growing demand for low-carbon heating solutions.

Divided into three sections, the guide covers:

1. Our current situation – deciding on low-carbon heating suitability

2. Installation challenges – making the right technology choice

3. Improving efficiency – getting it right first time
