HVAC Inspection

HVAC inspection maintenance is usually complex and lengthy, but the difference it made may not be immediately obvious. Thermal cameras can help both boost inspection speed and visually present maintenance result.

Customer’s Challenge

When residents experience HVAC problems in a building, there might be multitude of issues compiled together. It’s up to the HVAC repair technician to detect and locate these issues, and process could be lengthy. In addition, even if the technician fixed the issue right away, the effect of an improved HVAC system might not be noticeable immediately, which might leave doubt in their client’s mind. HVAC maintenance engineers need the right tools to quickly spot HVAC issues and clearly present the result of their work to the clients.

The Solution

Thermal imaging technology is great for both detecting problems and repairment result presentation. A thermal camera such as the FOTRIC 340/320 can easily pick up temperature anomaly induced by faulty component or structure, and significantly speed up the investigation process. In addition, the cameras can offer images of thermal conditions of pre- and post-repair HVAC system, which is a clear indication of the system’s status change.

The Result

Equipped with the FOTRIC 340/320, HVAC maintenance engineers can efficiently identify defects such as, leaky air duct, cold areas on floor heating, condenser coil clogging, air handler malfunction, bad connection and blown fuses in electrical system. Furthermore, the thermal images comparison of the HVAC system’s condition serves as a convincing evidence that the problems have been properly solved.
