The first thing our technicians do when they walk into a room is take a temperature reading. Uninsulated pipes present burn risk, and can sometimes create very dangerous environments. Using an infrared thermometer, we can measure surface temperatures and help to mitigate this risk for all parties.
However, a standard infrared meter is ill-equipped to take precise measurements—which can affect a technician’s ability to accurately assess a problem.
Because preventative maintenance is one of our most important initiatives here at Reitmeier, the ability to adequately locate and diagnose impending problems is invaluable to our team.
Which is why, when it came to selecting a tool for our field technicians, imperfect devices just weren’t going to cut it.
Leveraging innovative new technology
Fortunately, FLIR—one of our long-term trusted clients and maintenance partners—has produced an innovative new tool to aid in this process. The TG-165 is a thermal imaging device which allows us to obtain precise temperatures and problem location. FLIR reached out to us to test this exciting new product, and we couldn’t be more impressed!
Check out one of our own Reitmeier team members in the video below, where he compares the TG-165 to a standard infrared thermometer.
Catching electrical problems before they occur
It doesn’t stop there—we can use the same device to look at rooftop electrical equipment, identifying issues in wire connectivity or failing systems long before they surface.
In this way, we are able to proactively assess our clients’ buildings and HVAC systems—and help you make any necessary resolutions before your tenants are any the wiser.
What does this mean for you?
We’re so grateful to FLIR for allowing us to try out this fantastic new tool—and we’re proud to utilize this state-of-the-art technology to deliver the best possible service to our clients.
This is just one more way Reitmeier is constantly looking for new ways to Lead the Way in our industry—seeking out innovative new products, and providing the most accurate information to our customers. As a Reitmeier client, you can relax knowing that we’re here to help you avoid costly repairs—and, as always, bringing balance to your environment.
