Thermal imagers have become more important tools as they help identify potential problems that when fixed can improve sustainability and productivity, and save money. Thermal imagers help detect unexpected moisture and inadequate insulation in walls and ceilings, find air leaks in window sills and doors and identify areas of potential energy loss.
Used as everyday troubleshooting and maintenance tools, thermal imagers can reveal hot spots on electrical and mechanical equipment that may indicate problems ahead. They are ideal for professionals including plant electricians, field service technicians, facilities maintenance supervisors and technicians, process technicians, roofing specialists, weatherization specialists, energy auditors, and other building professionals.
