How is Drone Thermography Done?

Dubai Drones filming services are quickly becoming the preferred method of inspection for home inspectors and building owners. In the past, home inspectors have used ladders, cranes, and their personal skill to inspect a home. However, many home inspectors and builders discovered that the visual inspection process was much more informative and even enjoyable, when using a drone.

The use of thermal imaging on drones is quickly becoming one of the most preferred forms of home inspection. Home inspectors are no longer limited to the traditional forms of inspecting a home. With the new generation of drones, they can easily inspect the entire house from top to bottom. Along with inspecting the foundation and roof structure, a drone thermography inspection will ensure the integrity of the house frame.

When performing a drone thermography inspection, the inspector first makes sure that there are no obstructions in the drone’s line of sight. After making sure all angles are accessible to the thermal camera, the inspector then begins the inspection process. Using a remote-controlled thermometer, the inspector slowly walks around the exterior of the house, noting the temperatures inside each nook and cranny. He will then use the thermal camera to check for condensation. If condensation is found, he can eliminate the need for an expensive and time-consuming wet basement repair.

During his inspection, the inspector will check to make sure that there are no leaks anywhere in the house. This includes checking to ensure that the water pipes in the basement run clear of moisture, and that the shut off valve in the solar panels does not incorrectly shut off the water supply. If leaks are found, the camera will allow the inspector to note them on the thermal camera thermal report. If leaks are present, he can fix them prior to closing the leak or while recording the images to use for repair estimates. The repair costs may be covered by the utility company during the review process.

Drones are anticipated to continue to make significant advancements and their potential applications will only continue to expand. As a matter of fact, a group of drone thermographers recently completed the installation of the worlds’ first full-featured thermal imaging system that uses UAVs and a variety of wireless cameras.

The system uses high resolution, full-motion video to capture images of homes, buildings, and more. The images can then be processed through a handheld 3d modeling software package, which is capable of producing a professional-looking thermal image in seconds. Currently the system is being used to inspect pre-construction projects in the Los Angeles area, and the goal is to eventually apply the same technology to commercial buildings and residences throughout the world.
