I am trying to track down the cold air leaks in a house. I remember
seeing something that reads the temerature of something when pointed
at it, but I don't know what it is called.
Anyone know what the official name is?
But a blower door test - Air infiltration test, profesionaly done is
best. It will show how many air exchanges per day you have , how many
you should have, and will pinpoint all your leaks.
I believe the device you're looking for is made by Raytek, and perhaps
It's also great for monitoring the temperature of pizza in a brick oven.
An infrared camera probably won't work unless you have special lenses
and film that pass and are sensitive to the longer length thermal IR.
I agree with the suggestion that a survey by someone who knows what
they're doing using a blower door is the best way to go.
If you're looking for a "point and read" type device, check out Omega
instruments at www.omega.com They have a handheld temperature scanner for
something like $75.
Your local gas or electric company might do a scan for a nominal fee or
even for free.
