Conducting a thermal analysis at this time of year can be imperative for identifying potential heat leaks from building insulation to window frames. However,  the unpredictable winter weather can interfere with readings,  remember these points to make sure your results aren’t affected:

– Stable weather conditions
– Cloudy sky before and during the measurement (for measurements outdoors)
– No direct sunlight before and during the measurement
– No precipitation
– Surface of measuring object dry and clear of thermal sources of interference (e.g. no  foliage or chips on the surface)
– No wind or draught
– No sources of interference in the measuring environment or transmission path
– The surface of the measuring object has high emissivity that is known exactly
