ALRESFORD civic chiefs have bought a thermal imaging camera to help residents identify heat loss in their homes.
The aim is that the camera will help residents reduce their carbon emissions and winter fuel bills.
The town council has donated the camera to New Leaf Alresford, who will administer the loan scheme which will be free although donations will be appreciated.
The camera will show heat loss and encourage ways to tackle it such as insulation, draught excluders, radiator reflectors, thermal curtains, double or triple glazing.
The organisers hope people will share their images including 'before and after' shots.
