Tinytag loggers used to monitor thermal comfort in domestic dwellings

  • 30 Sep 2015

Thermographic survey specialist iRed has specified Gemini’s Tinytag data loggers to gather detailed information about temperature and relative humidity levels in domestic properties.

The company uses Tinytag data loggers to monitor temperature and relative humidity in domestic dwellings to study thermal comfort levels.

By recording and analysing the data, Tinytags can identify spikes which, combined with thermal images and Thermal Indexing, can help determine the risk of damp and mould in and outside properties.

iRed use Tinytag Ultra 2 TGU-4500 loggers at various locations indoors, whilst Plus 2 TGP-4500 loggers are utilised to record outside temperatures used as part of the thermal indexing equation.

Tim Mammatt is the Technical Manager at iRed and chose the units as they were cost-effective, compact and portable. Tim comments, “We use Tinytag data loggers for a number of different applications as they are compact, accurate and have a decent battery life. 

The collected data is easy to analyse and combined with data from our thermal imaging cameras, we can accurately determine the risk of condensation and mould.
