We all know that buildings with poor thermal insulation cause a massive waste of energy. In some cases the locations of poorly insulated areas and thermal bridges are quite obvious, but in most cases they are invisible to the human eye. Thermal cameras, sensitive to the thermal energy emitted from our surroundings, are capable of visualizing the differences in temperature, thus revealing building parts which are poorly insulated.

Today you decided to take a shorter shower. But
how much water did you save? Don’t know? Then the Econa water saving device
could be a smart investment.
