FLIR thermal cameras with MASSIVE discounts—might pay for themselves on your energy bills!

Thermal cameras have always been quite pricey, and FLIR – one of the most respected brands in the market – has been at the highest end of that so, even though I carefully put together a guide to the best thermal cameras, I do understand why not everyone has a thermal camera.

All of a sudden, though, I've noticed that the cameras have gotten some very impressive discounts – many of the FLIR cameras are around a third lower than their usual prices (while gas and electricity bills are in the opposite direction – the UK government allowed energy users to increase the charge for gas and electricity at the beginning of 2024).

That's great news because at these new prices the cameras actually have the potential to earn their cost back before the end of the winter, or perhaps the end of the year – all you need to do is look around your home and identify the spots where a little more cheap insulation could save you hundreds.

FLIR's tech is very easy to use, too, thanks to their technology which combines an optical image to make it easy to work out where the heat patches and cool spots are. You'll be working like a pro in minutes (these are, after all, professional tools).

Here are the two best deals right now, but you can also check more deals by looking at the table at the bottom of our thermal camera guide.
