Importance of Annual Solar Panel Domestic Thermal Inspections

By |Tags: , , |

Solar panels have become increasingly popular, but many homeowners overlook the importance of regular maintenance. Annual thermal imaging inspections can detect potential issues and prevent costly repairs. Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to identify abnormal temperature patterns, indicating problems such as faulty wiring or damaged cells. These inspections offer early detection, enhanced performance, improved safety, and cost savings. Case studies and statistics demonstrate the benefits of thermal imaging inspections. By investing in regular inspections, homeowners can ensure the optimal performance and longevity of their solar panel systems.

Introduction to Building Thermography: Detecting Non-Visible Defects

By |Tags: , |

Building thermography is a powerful tool used to detect non-visible defects in structures. By capturing and analyzing thermal images, it allows us to identify issues such as insulation gaps, moisture intrusion, and electrical faults. This book serves as an introduction to the principles and techniques of building thermography, providing a comprehensive understanding of this invaluable diagnostic method.

Ensuring Reliable Solar Panel Inspections through Certification

By |Tags: , , , |

Qualified thermographers play a crucial role in ensuring reliable solar panel inspections. With certification, they possess the necessary expertise to accurately identify and diagnose potential issues, maximizing the efficiency and longevity of solar systems. Their knowledge and skills are invaluable in maintaining the integrity and performance of these renewable energy sources.

Mitigating Fire Hazards and the Importance of Solar Panel Maintenance

By |Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Why solar panels can catch fire if not properly maintained. Solar panels are a popular renewable energy solution, converting the sun's energy into electricity for a greener future, however they need to be inspected regularly.

Solar Panel Faults – Common Types and Causes

By |Tags: , , , |

Solar panel faults can cause significant issues for commercial businesses as well as domestic homeowners who are relying on solar power. Understanding the common fault types and causes of these faults can help avoid costly downtime and repairs.

Enhanced Operating Permissions Granted by the CAA

Drone Media Imaging has been granted enhanced drone operating permissions from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) known as an ‘Operating Safty Case‘ or OSC, which puts us in an exclusive and advanced group of drone operators.

Less than 5% of drone operators currently have such permissions in the UK. Our enhanced permissions allow us to take-off, land, and fly closer to People, Properties, Vehicles and Vessels not under our control, as well as fly above 400ft to 800ft. Standard permissions now called, Operational Authorisation PDRA-01 (previously known as Permission for Commercial Operations PfCO) that the CAA grant normal drone operators are much more restrictive.

Drone Operators with CAA OSC Permissions

Operating under an UAS-OSC for your project is just as straight forward as for any other drone flight mission. The key difference is in the onsite procedures we deploy, safety planning implemented and research completed beforehand. The cost can vary considerably when there is a need to operate under an OSC and is very dependent upon the work required. So the first thing to do is to start a conversation with us about the project, survey/inspection, filming or photography you need to be completed and we can advise you if an OSC is needed in the first place, or whether the work can be completed under standard permissions.
