Thermal Imaging Camera Recommendations

I’ve scoured the web and seen different thermal imaging cameras, but most of the terminology was over my head. I’m not a home inspector. I’m actually a Commissioning Agent for a consulting firm. We’re looking into purchasing a high quality TI camera for inspecting building envelopes as well as troubleshooting HVAC problems (mostly Duct and Hydronics). I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations as far as where to start, who to ask, etc. I also expect for there to be some time spent on training. Can anyone direct me towards some good cameras or someone i could consult about what we should purchase and obtaining training on the camera? I just really need to get pointed in the right direction. While cost is a consideration, I’m willing to drop more dough on a camera if it substantially out-performs others. We will be inspecting large facilities and so we’ll need something with high quality images as well as a large capacity. We’ve put aside some funding for this, so we’re just looking for the best option (before the expenses offer diminishing returns, of course).

Please consider this…

If you commission buildings, you have enough to do! :wink:


I am sure you have been reading all of the posts about different cameras. I have worked some commissionings and would be glad to discuss some camera options with you. I have looked at them all.

Start with the training first, Level1 will give you an indication as to what camera you really require for your purposes.

ITC FLIRTraining is by far the best in the industry, and so are the Cameras.

You have never taken our course and hide behind an alias as a
non-member. I doubt you have ever used an IR camera.
