Thermography
Non-invasive thermal imaging

Thermography is the use and interpretation of thermal data and is becoming a valuable tool for both commercial and domestic customers.

It can be used to identify where electrical installations have faults before the fault turns into something more serious, and we regularly carry out inspections in large commercial properties to check fuse boxes and distribution boards to find issues before they become a problem.


Another use of thermal information is to help the numerous solar farms that are now a feature across the country. Inspecting the solar panels will highlight any that are not working efficiently, pointing the operator to the panels that need maintenance to keep them in the best condition possible, and therefore generating as much revenue as they can.

Thermography is frequently used in manufacturing and engineering to predict faults and steer maintenance programmes to keep machinery working as it should and prevent breakdowns from occurring, allowing the business to run at full efficiency with less downtime.

As the thermal properties of water are different to building materials, Thermography is a great way to find the cause of leaks, especially on flat rooftops. Using a drone-mounted sensor the leak can be identified, and the likely point of ingress confirmed, meaning targeted repair works and lower costs overall.

It can also be used to inspect a property's insulation, to make sure the heat is staying in the building, and not leaking out, an issue that is becoming more and more prevalent with the current costs of energy for companies and homeowners alike. For a domestic customer, commissioning a thermal survey to lead to them improving their insulation could pay for itself in a few years, for a large industrial building, or social housing providers, this could be months!

There are many benefits of Thermography:

  • It is non-invasive and non-destructive, with the thermal sensor able to pick up on heat emanating from a surface far before the difference can be felt by touch
  • Large areas can be inspected quickly, allowing areas of concern to be identified and investigated efficiently
  • Thermal energy can not be seen by the naked eye, but it can identify problems at an early stage before the problem becomes worse.

To ensure the thermal survey is carried out to the highest standard, it’s important to make sure who you use is fully qualified to do so, does so with the most modern accurate sensors, and is adequately insured to cover both you and them, fortunately, Quayle Industries Ltd has you covered!
