Thermal Energy Leak Detector

By now most of us know we need to insulate and / or caulk to stop air infiltration. OK ... how do you find the leaks?

In some cases it is obvious; when you can feel the draft ... but sometimes you need a little more help.

Black & Decker's thermal leak detector can " ... spot hidden energy leaks in your home ... Shine the light on the wall and set the reference temperature ... When the temp changes by 1, 5 or 10 degrees F (user adjustable), the light will change to red or blue to indicate a hot or cold spot ... "

"Energy Star states that plugging the leaks and drafts in your home can save up to 20% off your heating and cooling energy costs ..."
