How a Flir thermal camera can help diagnose RV problems

Listen to this story

From the bloggers at CRV Inspections:

After watching a home inspection video, I decided to try out the Flir handheld Infrared camera to aid me with my RV inspections.

Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their RV that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods. Handheld thermal imaging cameras for RV inspections can detect a wide array of issues in a cost-effective manner.

For example, the Flair Infrared Camera helps an inspector by locating hot points in a circuit. Hot points indicate lose connections and or bad circuits.

Infrared cameras can be used to quickly determine whether water stains are active or not. This isn’t a definitive test for moisture, but when a ceiling is all the same temperature, it’s highly unlikely that the ceiling is wet.
