Looking For a FLIR ITC Certified Thermography Inspection near me in Edmonton?
Admirable Inspection Services delivers professional infrared imaging results using only certified trained technicians and state of the art equipment from FLIR. Infrared thermography; thermal imaging, and thermal video are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermographic cameras detect radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum to produce images of that radiation; called thermograms
Thermal imaging helps to diagnose problems rather than merely identifying symptoms. Services include:
- Heat loss/Air loss, residential and commercial.
- HVAC ducting inspection
- EIFS Wall Cladding Inspection
- Residential and Commercial window inspection.
- Low or areas of missing insulation.
- Electrical hot spots, Motors, fuses and more
- Moisture intrusion evaluations.
- Hydronic leaks (Radiant floor heating systems)
- Flat roof inspections.
- Boat hull inspection for micro-cracking
- Solar panel inspection
Admirable Inspection Services Preventive / Predictive maintenance assistance.
Heat is often an indication of equipment damage or malfunctions, making it important to monitor in preventive maintenance programs. Engaging in thermal preventive maintenance regularly to check the temperature of critical equipment allows us to track operating conditions over time and quickly identify unusual readings for further inspection.
Monitoring equipment and scheduling maintenance when needed, facilities reduce the likelihood of downtime due to failure, you spend less on “reactive” maintenance and repair costs, and can extend the lifespan of assets.
The intent of thermal inspections is to save money, thermal inspections should not create additional maintenance efforts. We want to help transition maintenance resources away from emergency repairs through scheduled thermal inspections of key equipment whenever possible. Inspections take less time than repairs, especially if done with a thermal camera.
Applications of thermal preventive maintenance include:
Monitoring and measure bearing temperatures in large motors and rotating equipment.
Identify “hot spots” in electronic equipment.
Identify leaks in sealed vessels.
Find faulty insulation in process pipes or other insulated processes.
Find faulty terminations in high power electrical circuits.
Locate overloaded circuit breakers in a power panel.
Identify fuses at or near their current rated capacity.
Identify problems in electrical switch gear.
Capture process temperature readings.
Let’s work with a proactive mindset
Most facilities are equipped with countless components, from rotating assets to small transformers. Chasing problems as they surface can put strain on the most capable of maintenance teams, making it challenging to stay ahead of the wave. If the maintenance staff is constantly hustling to handle the latest equipment failure, response time can suffer. Warning signs, such as a significant rise or drop in operating temperature, precede most equipment failures. Thermal preventive maintenance inspections can help staff recognize the indicators that may lead to downtime if left unchecked. This helps maintenance managers make better decisions about maintenance schedules and prioritizing situations that demand an urgent response.
Maintenance personnel would rather find an impending problem than have to respond to a critical equipment failure after it happens!
Let’s work together to Increase efficiency and maximize human resources:
Many maintenance teams do not always have technicians who are trained to perform thermal inspections, often resulting in the outsourcing of this function. Equipment costs, training and education upkeep for thermographers is not always achievable at a facility level due to turnover. Third party Preventive Thermal Inspections are simple, team members can get up to speed quickly on inspection results, making it possible for managers monitor equipment with more precision and develop a better idea of the overall health of a facility’s equipment.
Do You Have A Water Leak In Your Home Or Business And Cannot Find The Source?
Tired of the water stains and musty smell from leaking water? Admirable Inspection Services has the Infrared Inspection equipment you need to find water leaks fast. Infrared can be used to detect building defects by observing how heat flows through walls and surfaces.
Have A Cold Area In Your Home But Don’t Know Where The Cold Air Is Coming From?
Tired of high heating bills and cold feet? Admirable Inspection Services has the experience and infrared equipment to help you find the source of cold air quickly. A quality building is comfortable for occupants and keeps moisture out. We will look for areas that can suggest air infiltration and exfiltration.
Surveys for heat loss/air loss on residential and commercial buildings should also be conducted with a blower door which is fast and safe. The building is most commonly depressurized by installing the Retrotec Blower door system into a doorway and using the variable drive fan to move air out of the building.
Although we have prep work, no one has to leave; the pressures created is intended to simulate a driving wind on the structure.
Looking For a Level 1 Certified Thermographer?
This imaging can help identify and document: electrical faults before they cause fire, overloaded and undersized circuits, circuit breakers in need of replacement, damaged, and/or wet insulation, heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, water and moisture intrusion that could lead to mold, possible pest infestation, hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage, structural defects, broken seals in windows, energy loss and efficiency, malfunctioning radiant heating systems and unknown plumbing leaks and many more mechanical and electrical systems.
What’s Included In Thermal Survey?
All thermal inspection surveys include’s: One site visit; more may be require based on your specific needs or request and a comprehensive report in PDF form for your review, this will include our findings and recommendations as requested.
What’s the cost of a Thermal Survey?
In order to provide you with some idea as to our fee for conducting a Thermal Survey, the following serves as a guideline based upon a number of Commercial/Residential Properties for which we have conducted Thermal Survey’s in the past.
Commercial Buildings from 10,000 to 100,000 SF ($0.05 to $0.15 per SF)
Commercial Buildings from 100,000 SF + (Contact for Quote)
Processing Facilities (Contact for Quote)

My Promise to You
Choosing the right inspection service provider can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment–after you’ve hired. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a thorough inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a quality inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort. I guarantee that I will give you my very best.
