Thermal Imaging for Predictive Maintenance and Repair


Infrared thermography can contribute significantly to predictive maintenance and repair in facility maintenance programs. Because they visualize heat, thermal imaging cameras are most often tapped for surveys of electrical systems. While this is an important use, thermal imaging cameras are also the perfect tool for HVAC inspections, water intrusion, building envelopes, and more. Cold spots can be indicative of plumbing leaks and insulation voids. In this presentation we’ll discuss the wide range of uses for thermal imaging cameras for building operations and facilities maintenance, and provide direction for developing infrared survey programs.


1. Gain an understanding of thermal imaging's role in predictive maintenance, and applications for thermal imaging throughout the facility environment
2. Learn the basics of infrared technology, including where infrared lies on the electromagnetic spectrum and how infrared cameras generally work
3. Receive helpful tips that will aid their understanding of infrared cameras and their proper use for predictive maintenance
