The Use of Thermal Imaging for HVAC Assessments


Thermal imaging, also known as thermography or thermo video, is a technology that senses differences in temperatures that are otherwise undetectable by human beings. While air is invisible to the human eye, the heating or cooling effect it has on the materials it comes in contact with leaves a heat signature that can be detected and visualised using infrared equipment, specifically the thermal imaging camera.

Thermal Imaging Offers One of the Best Tools for Predicting Possible Or Future, Failures of Your Air Conditioning Equipment

The thermal imaging camera is the primary tool for thermal imaging. These cameras operate similarly to conventional camcorders and actually look the same. They are extensively used in air conditioning repairs Surrey assessments, air conditioning maintenance, surveillance, security, navigation and medicine.

How Thermal Imaging for Air Assessments Work

Thermal imaging is used in many facets of building audits and diagnostics, including air conditioning repairs Surrey projects and indoor air quality assessments. Thermal infrared cameras work by giving a visual representation of infrared energy emitted by objects. They use detector and lens combinations that let you see heat and how it’s distributed on HVAC equipment. By evaluating the thermal images produced by these cameras, air conditioning maintenance experts are able to tell where repairs are needed.

The applications of this technology in air conditioning and plumbing issues as well as energy audits have made it an indispensable tool in the business of HVAC repair and maintenance. This technology is also used to detect problems that may lead to mould growth and affect indoor air quality.

Often air conditioning ducts are located in concealed spaces where they cannot be seen, such as drop ceiling cavities. If air leaks occur above drop ceilings, they will chill the drywall in the vicinity of the leak; this problem can be easily detected using thermal imaging. The ceiling can be removed for air conditioning repairs Surrey project only in the areas where leaks are detected rather than carrying out a demolition in order to inspect the entire system.

AC LOGIC provides highly qualified thermographers with the latest, state-of-the-art, and high-resolution thermal imaging cameras to identify AC problems or possible failures. By using this method, the company can help prevent costly repairs and potential equipment downtime in your facility.
