Veritherm Testing Level 1 Course

by Veritherm,

Course Description

This three-day course provides the knowledge and skills required to undertake testing on single dwellings and other small buildings. Delegates will learn the basic skills required to carry out whole-building thermal performance measurements using the Veritherm solution

What is Veritherm?

Veritherm is a unique building performance evaluation tool designed to rapidly measure the thermal efficiency of a building envelope. The solution provides an accurate and reliable result following a single night of testing.

Veritherm measures the performance of the building fabric and enables comparison to predicted values found in the SAP & RdSAP assessment. The solution gives real-world insight into heat demand, fuel economy and carbon emissions. This smart thermal measurement technology aims to bridge the gap between designed and operational energy performance, contributing to the UK’s ambition to become carbon neutral.
