Thermal imaging cameras are ideal tool for the inspection and maintainance of Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, as well as building insulation inspections and electrical maintenance inspections. In places such as hospitals, climate control is very important. HVAC systems ensure both hygiene and comfort for the patients and personnel.
Thermal Imaging & HVACs
Thermal imaging cameras provide the right information, allowing maintenance staff to make informed decisions on HVAC maintenance and building issue troubleshooting.
Ideally, the air temperature in the hospital should be 22 °C, with the air coming from ventilation ducts at 18 °C. Generally, thermometers are installed in key areas of the building which provide feedback for the automated HVAC system. But when information about airflow and temperature distribution in a specific room, thermal imaging cameras are used.
In hospitals, a close control of air circulation is necessary in order to prevent contamination with airborne pathogens. For this reason, HVAC systems are closely and regualrly monitored with the help of thermal imaging.
Other uses of thermal imaging include:
- inspecting fuse cabinets
- inspecting mechanical components in the ventilation system for faults
- checking backup batteries in the server room
