I’ve recently been contacted by someone in my area who is going out of the IR business and trying to sell his equipment. He has the P65 (FLIR?), paid $50,000 for it 2 years ago and is trying to get $30,000. I was floored at the investment cost! I’ve seen a $1000 NACHI discount for a $6000 IR Camera (posted somewhere in this section). Is there a HUGE difference between the two kinds of cameras?
In my area, I’d rather not hassle people for extra $ for IR, unless they want a whole house investigative scan. I’d like to use the IR camera to further investigate suspicious areas and market my services as such, e.g., “We also use IR Thermography in our standard home inspections.” It’s a differentiator. Or, am I selling myself short?
I’ve only recently begun my research into IR, but your input would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks very much.
