Another great use case for thermal imaging is to see what’s going on inside your HVAC system. This is especially useful during the summertime when temperatures are at their hottest. The last thing you want during a heat wave is an air conditioner that is sputtering lukewarm air at you.
While there are some issues with HVAC systems that thermal imaging can’t detect, there are many others that can be easily diagnosed with an infrared camera in the hands of a trained professional. For example, if your HVAC system includes ducts, thermal imaging makes it possible to see inside your walls and ceilings to the ductwork within. You’ll be able to find out if there are gaps or damage in the ductwork. Also, you can check the condenser unit itself with thermal imaging to determine if any coils are running hotter than the others, which may be a sign of a clog.
