Thermal Imaging in the Renewables Sector

Testo thermal imaging cameras are the ideal inspection tool for a wide range of applications in the renewables market sector.

Testo thermal imaging cameras can be utilised to visualise conditions that the naked eye cannot see. By seeing more thermally you can fully understand the thermal operation and performance of the renewables equipment installed.

Testo manufacture a wide range of high quality, affordable thermal imaging cameras which can be used to conduct thermal surveys of properties prior to the installation of heat pumps, to verify the suitability of the property for satisfactory operation of the heat pump. The thermal imaging camera is ideal for mapping the energy / heat loss from a building, to highlight air leakage and to detect missing or defective insulation and other faults which can affect the suitability of a building.


Thermography is also an ideal technology to inspect photovoltaic system installations, to check the PV panels for any defects such as defective cells or to check electrical connections and equipment used for the installation. The use of thermal imaging cameras enables a non-intrusive inspection to be conducted during normal operation of the system and enables large areas to be scanned within a short time, providing thermal images of the solar panels and PV installations, highlighting visually any thermal anomalies.

Another application to consider the Testo thermal imaging cameras for is to verify the operation of any heating systems operating from renewable energy sources such as air or ground source heat pumps. Under floor heating system installations can be set up and their operation and performance can be verified with a thermal imaging camera. Likewise the thermal performance of radiators can be visually verified to ensure that the overall system is functioning to the correct performance levels.

Testo thermal imaging cameras are the versatile inspection tool to help the renewables market sector be sure of successful installations.
