Thermal Imaging for contractors – advantages in a nutshell
For contactors in the Building, Facilities Maintenance, HVAC, and Electrical industries, the ability to visualise each situation you are facing can make a huge difference. Knowing precisely where to start with a job, can save time and effort, meaning you increase efficiency, and ultimately provide a faster service to customers.
Those 20-30 minutes extra spent diagnosing each job soon add up, particularly at busy times of the year when you’ve got a waiting list. With that in mind, a valuable addition to many contractors toolkit is a thermal imaging camera.
But what specific applications is a thermal camera most useful for?
Below we summarise some of the best examples where thermal imaging has time and time again, proved an extremely effective diagnostic tool for contractors:
Heating and installation systems
- Checking radiators for build-up of silt deposits
- Identifying underfloor heating abnormalities
- Identifying overloads, imminent malfunctions or existing defects in switching cabinets and wiring
Construction and Mould Assessment
- Visualising thermal bridges in buildings
- Detecting areas that are prone to mould
- Pinpointing thermal anomalies in leaking pipes
- Locating roof leaks
Structural and Insulation Defects
- Finding insulation defects
- Checking air tightness of windows and doors
