The Benefits of Thermal Imaging

The Benefits of Thermal Imaging

May 17, 2019

Infrared and thermal imaging solutions are gaining popularity in a number of applications across the globe. Early thermal imaging solutions were less available and costly. Today, a thermal imaging system is more accessible, accurate and useful in a variety of settings.

As infrared and thermal imaging solutions have become widely available, they’ve become widely utilized. They bring a number of advantages over visible imaging solutions for certain applications.

What Is Thermal Imaging ?

A thermographic camera detects infrared radiation from the magnetic spectrum. It produces an image called a thermogram, a visual depiction of the variations in temperature detected within the camera’s field of view.

With a thermal camera, you can read a thermal signature as small as an electrical box or as big as a building. There’s a long list of benefits for thermal imaging. Having a thermogram can help you:

  • Detect thermal insulation and HVAC issues
  • Perform home inspections
  • Pinpoint energy losses
  • See faulty electrical wiring and equipment

It is a non-invasive method of assessing moisture damage, electrical problems, and energy conservation for any structure. It’s fast and highly accurate. The equipment is light and portable which makes capturing images in small and confined spaces possible. A good thermal imager will help you find problems while they are still small.

Benefits of Infrared and Thermal Imaging Systems

While thermal and infrared systems are deployed in a wide range of settings, there are fundamental advantages that non-visible imaging solutions have over visible imaging solutions.

Infrared and thermal cameras can be used to measure temperature differences, which is essential for monitoring critical equipment. For example, a thermal camera can monitor electrical equipment – which heats up before it fails – to signal when maintenance or replacement is required.

Thermal and infrared image systems provide great return on investment (ROI) in most applications. In the examples above, keeping a location safe and secure, or avoiding a catastrophic equipment failure, can lead to rapid ROI.
