    Thermal cameras are becoming more and more common in construction projects that deal with electrical wiring, plumbing, and HVAC systems. Essentially a heat detector, this kind of camera is indispensable for quickly diagnosing and fixing issues that may arise with heat leakage or faulty installation. Thermal camera models vary in terms of sensitivity to infrared energy, the sensor's resolution, and the temperature variations that can be detected. Most budget-friendly models will lack the sensitivity to detect small issues, so expect these options to be handy for major problems only. Pricier cameras will be necessary to tackle small issues before they grow.
