How Tinytag data loggers can help housing associations and the refurbishment/restoration of buildings

Monitoring temperature and relative humidity helps to inform strategies around heating, ventilation, insulation, and more in dwellings and refurbishment projects.

Data loggers play a vital role in gathering historical and comparative data about environmental conditions. From temperature and humidity monitoring to power usage monitoring, this key data helps to inform strategies around heating, ventilation, insulation, and more.

Tinytag data loggers are used to assess the performance of heating and ventilation systems, and building products such as insulation materials, as well as overall energy efficiency.

Landlords and public housing associations must ensure that the accommodation they provide is free from serious hazards, including damp and mould, and that homes are fit for habitation. Issues such as condensation arise for various reasons, such as poor ventilation or inadequate insulation, but can quickly become more problematic and dangerous. Monitoring temperature and relative humidity throughout the accommodation can help property owners act promptly to protect the health of the occupants, ideally identifying problem areas and increases or decreases in temperature/relative humidity readings before they become an issue.

Tinytags are also used to assess environmental conditions and improvements during building refurbishment projects and are frequently used to compare 'before' and 'after' situations. Historical data is useful to assess the impact of different home upgrades, energy efficiency methods, and other significant changes, throughout a project and/or as part of long-term monitoring.

Black Country Housing Group use Tinytag Ultra 2 and Tinytag Talk 2 temperature and humidity data loggers to analyse whether the energy performance of new or modified buildings is in line with expectations. The data from the Tinytags helps to identify unexpected performance (better or worse than expectations.) Tinytags were chosen because they are stand-alone and unobtrusive in occupied dwellings.

An energy efficiency scheme uses compact, indoor Tinytag Ultra 2 and rugged, outdoor Tinytag Plus 2 temperature data loggers to complete a fuel poverty impact evaluation in occupied dwellings. Data recorded from the indoor loggers is compared with the outdoor environmental conditions, helping to inform the design of future fuel poverty programmes.
