Thermal imaging for Plumbing and Heating Contractors

Applications for plumbing and heating engineers

Thermal imaging can be hugely useful when installing or maintaining heating systems. More and more engineers are beginning to see the value in a thermal camera, from a commercial to a domestic level. You can pinpoint any irregularities to the temperature distribution right away, so it’s easy to locate clogged radiators and leaks for example. Testo thermal imaging cameras are incredibly accurate and easy to operate, so are the perfect tool for such tasks.

You could take our word for it, but we thought it would be better to show you how thermal imaging can be applied to daily tasks. Below are some examples of how thermal cameras are used in the plumbing and heating industry, and how they can help engineers to be even more precise and efficient in their work. Enjoy:


Radiator blockages

It’s not always easy to figure out exactly where radiators are blocked. With a thermal camera it couldn’t be simpler

Some radiators are particularly bad – this ones barely producing any heat at all


Damaged pipework


Why waste time digging around trying to find leaking pipes? With a testo thermal imaging camera you can locate leaks in a matter of seconds


Underfloor heating

Understanding the exact location of the wiring or hydro pipes for under floor heating is extremely useful when carrying out renovation work



Show customers your handywork, precisely where is being heated, and that there aren’t any leaks


Ventilation and Air conditioning units

This air conditioning unit is malfunctioning. I wonder why… Overheating much?!?


Water Damage and dampness

With thermal imaging you can see areas with risk of damp, far before anything is visible to the naked eye


Testo thermal cameras

testo-870-thermal-imaging-cameraYes you heard right, you can now get a Testo thermal camera for less than £1000! This is thanks to a huge price reduction on the testo 870 thermal imaging cameras.

This makes the testo 870 the only thermal camera with a 120 x 160 pixel resolution, available for less than £1,000.  It’s also the only camera in its class to offer automatic hot/cold spot recognition. In addition to all this, testo 870’s now include SuperResolution technology as a standard feature.
