Green Product Review #2: Black & Decker’s Thermal Leak Detector helps reduce energy costs by finding energy leaks in your home. You’ll instantly identify problem areas around drafty windows and doors, and uncover hidden leaks and insulation “soft spots” around electrical outlets, recessed lights, and along floor molding. Shine the light on the wall and set the reference temperature. Reference temperature shows surface deviation from reference temp. Move the light around your house. 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. Pretty impressive!!!
