What is the purpose of a thermal imaging gun? Why is it important in the home insulation industry? A thermal imaging gun used in insulation application appears and serve a very similar purpose to those gun thermometers many of us are so familiar with. Although anyone can easily handle a thermal imaging gun because it’s a literally handheld device that’s simple to operate, understanding what it shows takes some skill and knowledge.
There are larger thermal cameras used in the insulation industry and they serve an important purpose. They can show changes in temperatures – where it’s usually hotter or colder in a home or building. However, since thermal imaging guns are handier, they are used by many insulation contractors during the initial inspection of a property to determine which areas lack and need more insulation.
Why is Thermal Imaging Important?
Thermal imaging, as mentioned earlier, gives an insulation contractor an image of where heat is concentrated in a property. For instance, you’ve lived in a home for several years now with an assumption that it is well-insulated. But you’re noticing that it gets extremely warm in one bedroom compared to an adjacent bedroom that has the same number of windows, anyway. Breaking down the walls to check on insulation would be costly, inefficient, and impractical. A thermal imaging gun would let you check if the temperature is different in one area of your home compared to another.
