Thermography has many useful applications for today’s professionals. Electrical maintenance technicians use thermography to locate overheating joints and sections of power lines, which are a sign of impending failure. Plumbers use thermography to detect faulty pipes, clogs, and leaks, quickly identifying the section of pipe that needs attention. Contractors and builders can use thermographic cameras to see thermal signatures that indicate heat leaks in faulty thermal insulation. They can then use the results to properly insulate problem areas and improve the efficiency of heating and air-conditioning units. With so many uses for safety, diagnostics, maintenance, and repair, thermographic tools are sure to become a go-to tool in many professional’s tool-belts.
