Thermal imaging cameras for AC cooling technicians serve as a diagnostic tool to check on condenser coils, fuses, detecting air pockets or compromised piping and ducts. Flir and Fluke are the two biggest manufacturers of thermal cameras.
What are the basic considerations when selecting a thermal imager?
Screen size – to enable better viewing of inspected objects.
Resolution – for sharper and more accurate images.
Temperature range – to cover the entire spectrum of applications.
Frequency or refresh rate – for faster image adjustment when moving camera view from one object to another.
What are some additional considerations?
Memory size – for saving images.
Wireless or Bluetooth – for data transfer and image or video streaming to mobile devices.
Length and coverage of warranty.
HVAC AC Cooling service technicians and professionals have a wide selection of cameras available to them. Cameras have become very affordable and prices start as low as $299.00. They are not only inexpensive but can generate additional revenue by early detection of normally invisible problems.
We highly recommend looking at the following manufacturers: AEMC, Amprobe, Flir, Fluke, Mastercool and Testo.
