4 reasons for all seasons

Faulty Photovoltaic Cells

From time to time, photovoltaic cells can become faulty and cause further problems to the overall efficiency and power output of the solar panel system.

Protect Your Solar System

Whether you have a home or business that utilises solar panels, you wouldn't want anything to come between you and access to fantastic renewable energy.

Prevent Electrical Fire

If there was an error that had occurred within your solar panel system then it could lead to an electrical fire and considerable damage to your solar panels.

Disconnected Panels

The wiring of a specific panel could become dislodged, causing you to suffer a decrease of renewable energy being produced by your solar panels.

The dream solution to your nightmare

1. Thermal Imaging Survey

Accurate survey and assessment using our cutting edge FLIR thermal imaging cameras.

2. Detailed Report

Comprehensive reports detailing the findings from our thermographic surveys, pointing out issues.

3. Peace Of Mind

You can rest easy knowing any issues as well as our recommended solutions to fix them for good.


Our reasoning for offering a solar panel thermal imaging survey service is due to our already invested stance in the solar industry that is not always realised by people. We also operate a sister company of Direct Thermography, which is Direct Solar Care, a company that offer services for solar panel installation, solar panel maintenance, solar panel repairs and any other services people require for their panels. Therefore, we always want people’s solar panels to be operating without fault and at full capacity.

We offer this service from Direct Thermography for the assessment of active solar panels and identification of any problematic areas suffering faults and errors. The nature of solar panels is to convert solar energy from the sun, so in that sense they are already equipped towards being able to handle heat without breakage. Due to this, we can quickly identify anywhere throughout the system or of an individual panel where there is an issue that has arisen.

If a photovoltaic cell has become faulty and is not working in tandem with the rest of the system anymore, or there is wiring that has caused problems, then solar panel thermography will point that out and keep you from dismantling unnecessarily.

Solar panel thermal imaging is the service that, as a solar panel owner, you may not have realised that you needed. It is the easiest way to check the health and performance of your panels so that you are assured you are getting the most from your investment and the fantastic renewable energy that they produce.

This service is available for all domestic solar panel owners as well as solar panel farm owners and operators as well. It is sometimes the difference between success and failure and many costly and long-standing repairs as you attempt to diagnose the origin of the problem.

A solar panel thermal imaging inspection is able to highlight errors and failures within the system. It will detect inconsistencies in panels themselves such as poor connections, unbalanced loads and faulty photovoltaic cells. This will be highlighted by our heat loss survey that will detect a lack of activity from the damaged cell. If you have spent money and time having solar panels installed, then you want it to work. You have already been able to enjoy the great savings from having this renewable energy at your fingertips, so keep it going. The last thing you want is for something to go wrong and affect the energy output of your solar system, leaving you feeling disheartened and dismayed.

The future is bright with solar panel thermography

But that doesn’t mean you have to stay down in the dumps. After a solar panel thermography inspection by Direct Thermography you’ll know exactly what works well, what doesn’t and how it can be fixed to have you right as rain and back up and running in a flash. Speaking of rain, if you have noticed water in your property that shouldn’t be there, you probably have a leak and could do with our thermal imaging leak detection to fix this.  

If you are a solar panel farm owner or operator then this service is a godsend at keeping everything running smoothly and without unnecessary complications or breakages. Although solar panel farms will come in a variety of shapes and sizes, even a small solar farm will take up a decent amount of land space as panels are not small and with many of them grouped together in a confined area, it can be hard to go round each individual panel.

This is exactly what you would have to do if there was a noticeable drop in the power output from the system, whereby you would have to check each panel to locate where the error has occurred and can then be fixed. This long and arduous process is only something you have to suffer if you haven’t contacted Direct Thermography to make the most of this helpful service.

With solar panel thermal imaging inspection on a solar farm, there is no delay in getting to the root of the problem. You don’t need to go around individual panels and attempt to make informed guesses at fixing the problem. Instead, the thermogram of your solar panels will immediately point out where the error has occurred as the visual image will show how the area of the fault displays a different amount of infrared radiation to the rest of the system.

Protect your panels and be able to continue to enjoy your access to fantastic renewable solar energy without interruption or error by utilising this fantastic service provided by renowned thermal imaging company, Direct Thermography.


A thermal imaging, or FLIR, camera works by detecting the infrared radiation of a given object, person or animal based on the surface temperature. Due to this, and the fact that this practice is both non-contact and non-invasive it means that there are many applications and uses for this excellent technology.   

Thermal imaging cameras have a wide range of applications and uses across an array of different industries and professions. The fact that a thermal imaging camera is able to produce results without any contact or invasion means that you can get easy and accurate answers.

As well as this, it also allows for whatever it is that is being assessed to be in operation during the survey which can be far more insightful than other methods. The industries that we most frequently conduct surveys for are; aerospace, automotive, buildings, chemical, electrical, mechanical, medical, pest control and veterinary.

Within these industries are multiple different applications for the effective use of thermal imaging cameras and their fantastic infrared detection technology. 

Yes, a thermal imaging camera can indeed be used during the daytime and daylight hours. The reason for this is because a FLIR camera contains a special lens. What this lens does is that it focuses the heat given off of whatever it is that is being assessed onto a detector that is sensitive to heat. Therefore, a thermal imaging camera is not affected by light and produces equally brilliant results during the day as it would at night too. 

Once you are aware that you require a thermal imaging survey then it is time to either pick up the phone to give us a call or fill out the contact for that can be found on every page of this website. We will then arrange a time that is convenient for you to be able to come and provide a free quote for the cost of the service you require. If you have already received a quote from another company, inform us of this for us to beat their price.

Then it is time to get down to business, our thermal imaging survey specialists will conduct a thorough survey of whatever you require. Once we are satisfied that we have a comprehensive assessment of the given subject of the survey then we will process the data of this. We provide a report of the survey which outlines the findings of it and explains it in a way that can e understood and that will include the images from the survey too. 

A thermal imaging survey will vary in cost, depending on multiple factors. Our service is entirely mobile as we can transport our thermal imaging cameras to wherever they are needed. If you are very far away from on of our offices then this may factor into the cost of your survey. Typically, a thermal imaging survey will be based around a day rate. This is subject to change by factors such as; the selected service, the necessary equipment to complete the survey, the time taken to complete the survey or other factors that are also subject to change.
