Thermal Imaging – How it can help you

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 problems like clogged radiators and leaks. Testo thermal imaging cameras are incredibly accurate and easy to operate – 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 











Figuring out where exactly a radiator is blocked can be a challenging task. With a testo thermal camera it couldn’t be simpler.

Feeling chilly? Some radiators are particularly bad – this one produces barely any heat!
