I was looking into how to better insulate my house and started reading
about infrared temperature guns to better identify some of the areas
that could be improved. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that a
filter on my digital camera is going to cut it :-(
Anyway, I've seen devices from $30-$500+ and wanted to ask for
anyone's experience with such products. Some appear to require
contact, others don't, some have laser-guides, etc. and the functions
seem to range from engine diagnostics to checking reptile
I'm basically interested in something that I can point at a location
and get reading from so that I can compare it to a reference point. I
would prefer a non-contact device to one that requires contact.
Does anyone have experience these types of tools? Would I be able to
get what I want from the $30 reptile device, or do I need to step up a
little more to be able to test windows, etc.?
I've also checked the local electric company regarding home audits
(they don't perform them), but I have other uses in mind down the
road, so I'd like to get my own device rather than outsource it.
