I am a FH squatter

Which of the FLIR One's did you buy?That was the main reason I bought it, the main heat loss in my terraced house is the front and back external walls. I kind of knew that anyway, but the camera shows they're generally 3-4 degrees colder than interior walls (no cavities on this house). It's a messy job to fix but I can do it myself with 22mm polystyrene-backed plasterboard, so I'll be doing that shortly.
It's interesting how you can see where central heating pipes run, and how it's always the corners of rooms that are coldest (like where two walls and the ceiling meet). Generally though I think I've done a decent job of insulating this house over the years.
The pic shows part of my bedroom, the external wall is obviously colder. The bit bottom right is where a radiator is. Chimney breast on the left I thought would be cold, but it's actually quite warm. Window is single glazed sash and is original to the house, I don't want to replace it.
