Abstract: The article considers the method of identifying energy losses in the classrooms of building no. 4 Sumy NAU, which takes place in three stages. At the first, preparatory stage, with the help of a special device of the Fluke Ti25 thermal imager, the scanning method detects problem areas of the structural elements of the classroom - ceilings, walls and floors, which lose heat and require energy-saving measures. A large (more than 10%) difference in the surface temperature of a room element indicates a large loss of thermal energy. The thermographic method and the peer review method are used. At the second stage of information processing, measures to reduce heat loss are determined. At the third stage, is the implementation of energy-saving measures. The practical relevance of this work is to find problematic building elements that require the use of measures to improve their energy efficiency.
Keywords: energy saving; energy losses in the classrooms; energy audit; thermal energy; energy-saving measures; thermographic method; energy efficiency.
