Those energy bills can really add up, especially if you have problem areas in your home. Do you know if or where there are problem areas are in your home? As a certified Level 1 Thermographer by the Infrared Training Center I can see problems that you can’t and can give you tips that will make you more comfortable and save you money year round. I can also prepare a report to give to contractors that shows them where to fix issues or where they made mistakes. A report is also useful as a reference if a followup thermal graphic inspection is conducted once repairs are completed.

Builders and contractors you can have me inspect your projects to ensure the quality work of your trades. I can even help educate your employees and subcontractors to ensure the quality of your product so that your company maintains a reputation of quality.

Many people don’t realize it but our homes and buildings are always using energy that costs money while also contributing to climate change. This is very obvious once you see this for yourself. Watch the video below to see what I mean.

Since we currently need energy to heat our homes and buildings, there is an incentive for companies to frack the earth for natural gas. Using thermal imaging to detect problems is a fast, low-cost, non-intrusive way to find ways for the home owner to save money and do their part to fight this problem.

If you live in or around Saskatoon give me a call at (306)261-8846 to schedule an appointment. I can thermal scan your home and show you opportunities to save money and do your part for the environment. Customers will receive a free copy of the second edition of my ebook How to Future Proof Your Home, a $25 value for free.

A basic scan of your home will take about an hour and show you opportunities to improve comfort and save money within your home. For only $150 I will go with you through your home and teach you about what you are seeing so that you know how to take action. If major issues are found or you want a report to give to contractors, I will charge an extra $200 to prepare the report. In certain circumstances, additional charges may apply such as for mileage. These rates apply to home owners. Contractors can contact me directly to discuss services available and rates.

Inspections are most accurate after the sun sets or when it’s overcast. Direct sunshine creates a problem with regards to accuracy. For best results the temperature must be below 5°C.

My main objective with providing this service to home owners is to help the general public see first hand how our buildings use energy so that they can take steps to save energy and educate others. The more people know about this subject, the faster we can transition to a cleaner, more sustainable future.

If you would like your students to learn about this, contact me and we can figure something out that can help them learn how this can make a difference for the future of our planet.

In addition to checking walls and roof components, thermal imaging is very useful for inspecting radiant floor heating systems and electrical connections. Here is more information about Thermography.

Common Issues Include:

Drafty/ Poorly Installed Windows: Thermal imaging can see the problem immediately.

Poorly insulated areas of the roof are obvious and therefore correctable on flat ceilings.

The heat loss of this basement is obvious compared to the upper floors. There are certain situations where this can be remedied.

Commercial Thermal Imaging

My consulting career began performing commissioning and retro-commissioning of commercial buildings. As part of that service, thermal imaging was utilized to provide greater analysis. Thermal imaging is also very useful for detecting issues while conducting an energy audit.

Commercial buildings use a lot more energy than residential buildings which makes the potential for savings much greater. As a former automation technician for Honeywell, I am very familiar with control systems and have been involved in commissioning many different HVAC systems and components. Call me at (306)261-8846 to discuss how I can help you reduce the operating costs and improve tenant comfort in your commercial building(s).

A thermal image of a ventilation system in a rink gives the approximate supply air temperature. This helps verify proper operation.

 

Industrial Thermal Imaging

There are many components within an industrial setting that can be inspected using thermal imaging. The expected operation of a piece of equipment can be used as a benchmark or components can be compared to themselves or duplicate pieces of equipment.
