Concerned about climate disruption? You CAN make a difference, in Bristol, by volunteering with the C.H.E.E.S.E. Project to assist in thermal image surveys of the interior of homes in Bristol - with the object of improving the energy efficiency of homes.
The award-winning not-for profit C.H.E.E.S.E Project is gaining both local and national recognition having carried out over 300 thermal surveys in Bristol in 4 years using our unique low-cost system. These allow highly targeted low-cost retrofit, for example by using DIY techniques to stop the draughts that can waste up to a third of the heat in a home. Our aims are warmer homes and a cooler planet.
However we operate on a tiny budget and it is hard to get grants, so we must rely on volunteers to expand the project’s important work. Your contribution can make a valuable difference to carbon footprints and is always really appreciated by the householder.
As an assistant Energy Tracer™, you can learn how to operate the CHEESE thermal imaging equipment, how to interpret thermal images, and the basics of building construction and energy efficiency. As well as this, you will have the opportunity to work with people committed to action against climate change.
This opportunity begins with a brief training session in our unique method of thermal surveying on Sunday 6th October. We are seeking volunteer workers, according to your availability, for daytime, evenings and weekend surveys until the end of April 2020 in the greater Bristol area (with two weeks leave over Christmas/New Year). Local travel expenses will be paid.
