What are the advantages of Thermal Imaging Inspection?

The use of thermal imaging has been changing the landscape of survey and inspection services across the UK for several years. Combined with the modern capabilities of commercial UAV services, they form a powerful combination.

Thermal imaging can be used to identify:

  • Thermal bridging
  • Heat loss
  • Water ingress
  • Roof leaks
  • Missing insulation
  • Damp
  • Leaking pipes
  • Cracks & Structural Weak Points
  • and more

These are all issues that the naked eye generally CANNOT see and is one of the highlight benefits to the service. Thermal Imaging can see the problems that the naked eye simply cannot.

Our commercial grade aerial drones are equipped with the DJI Zenmuse XT Thermal Imaging camera.  This is the very latest in thermal imaging technology.

How can thermal imaging UAV inspection offer a better service AND save me money?

A traditional inspection of a building (for example) would be conducted by a conventional inspection team. They would most likely use scaffolding to access building points which in itself is a considerable expense and adds more time to an inspection schedule. This access would be limited to visual vantage points dictated by the set location of the scaffolding.

By using aerial drones, we can conduct a full sweep of a building from vantage points that are simply impossible by conventional methods. It allows us to conduct a detailed thermal imaging scan of ‘points of interest’ from multiple distances and angles. This provides more data that can be analysed by multiple specialists and it can be archived for future analysis and comparison. This inspection can be conducted at short notice and does not require a team of ‘at height’ inspection specialists, scaffolding, road closures and other issues that would be required with traditional inspection. This immediately cuts the costs of the inspection and reduces the time it takes for an inspection to be conducted. Our drones can fly in the same weather conditions that a conventional inspection team would work in.

Using UAV thermal imaging drones saves money on the inspection costs and it highlights issues in more detail that can save money on future repairs.
