Infrared technology is increasingly present in mainstream the remodeling and building industry.

Infrared, is radiation similar to visible light, but with a slightly longer wavelength. It has less energy than red light – which is the lowest energy light the human eye can perceive. Visible light is emitted by objects at a very high temperature, infrared energy is emitted by all objects at room temperature and below.

Imaging Thermometers allow you to monitor and detect excessive or inadequate temperatures of building systems and envelopes.    Allowing the monitoring of energy loss, building HVAC and electrical systems diagnostics. as wall as help locate heat pipes in walls and floors.

DEWALT 12 Volt MAX Imaging Thermometer:
