The Need for Digital Thermometer for HVAC Professionals
Taking temperature readings is part of an HVAC technician’s duty, which includes everything from monitoring air variances at the supply and returning to reading super-heat and sub-cooling. Infrared thermometers are useful in principle, but they don’t live up to the expectations. In terms of accuracy, this may vary from brand to brand. In some circumstances, an infrared thermometer can provide a general reading. A high-up return air, for example, might provide a rapid overall reading.
Infrared thermometers are rendered useless by copper wires, which scatter the infrared sensor. The most accurate reading will come from a digital HVAC thermometer. Many HVAC meters, such as the Westron digital thermometer, include leads that may be used for a variety of temperature measurements. Dedicated digital thermometers with sensor probes are also useful.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems ensure that people are comfortable indoors and that computers function properly. HVAC systems also keep materials and goods within their approved ambient temperature ranges in locations ranging from supermarkets and silos to museums and greenhouses.
Temperature sensors are essential in HVAC machines such as:
- Ambient heaters
- Water heaters
- Solar thermal systems
- Combined heat and power plants
Industrial HVAC temperature sensors must function in adverse situations such as wetness, high humidity, and severe temperatures. At the same time, environmental considerations demand that air handling devices be energy efficient.

Techniques for measuring temperature
In general, any type of infrared, non-contact thermometer can be used in three ways:
- Taking a temperature reading at a specific location
This measuring method is used to monitor and track temperature at a single location. It is handy for tracking an object’s temperature or comparing a measurement to a specification. A thermometer with good repeatability contributes to consistency in this type of measurement.
- contrasting the temperatures of the two locations
This sort of measurement might be used to check the operation of a steam trap by monitoring the intake and output temperatures. The absence of change implies that the trap has failed to open. A significant change implies that the trap has failed to shut.
- Scan an object and identify changes in a continuous region on it
This feature enables the user to locate hot or cold places on housings, panels, and structures.
Infrared Thermometer Applications
Process monitoring, predictive and preventive maintenance in plants, electrical applications, quality assurance, and other applications can all benefit from infrared thermometry.
Non-contact infrared (IR) thermometers are useful for moving targets and equipment, dangerous and inaccessible or distant targets, electrical components, “big picture” evaluations of machinery or surfaces, trending data, and even litigation and insurance claims. Insurance firms, in fact, are urging their consumers to use preventive infrared scanning.
IR thermometers and imagers may save contractors and customers time and money while also performing diagnostics that were previously unattainable without shutting down equipment.
