Some of our engineers have asked for more help to interpret their temperature data. We’ve written down some of what we look for, and offer individual help as needed.
What kind of engineer?
In our programme, we pair volunteer engineers with community groups to understand what a net zero future holds for their venues. Groups who are interested often ask us, “What is an engineer exactly, and who counts?” You might find the answer surprising.
About grants and finance
Many of our venues are asking for advice about grants to make improvements to their buildings. Here’s the “big picture” view.
Thermal imaging – is it useful?
Thermal imaging produces pretty pictures, but is it useful? We once set a masters student to answer that very question.
The four sessions
What are HeatHack sessions like? Here’s what groups do in each one.
New recruitment materials
We have a new recruitment presentation – if you are helping us find new groups to take part, please feel free to use it.
An interesting heating control story
Here’s an existing heating control problem in a set of halls – one thing our engineers help communities think about during our programme.
Can we use alkaline batteries?
Our thermal monitors will work on non-rechargeable alkaline batteries, but we don’t know how long they will give readings, and when the voltage drops too far, the relative humidity readings will be inaccurate.
Sharing thermal monitors
Engineers, there’s a slight wrinkle if you want to put two thermal monitors in the same building. We explain how.
An electricity puzzle
One of our venues has very high electricity use at night, and we’re wondering why.
