Between the economy and the holidays everyone is looking for ways to cut spending. We found the Black and Decker Thermal Leak Detector which can help save energy and money. Sealing up leaks in the shell of your home can save up to 20% in heating and cooling cost which totals around 10% of the home’s annual electric bill according to Energy Star. The Black and Decker Thermal Leak Detector spots hidden leaks and then uses light to show the user where the leaks were detected. According to GoodCleanTech.com:
To begin, you’d need to shine the light on solid wall as reference before shining it on the edges of ceilings, doors, windows, and anywhere else you’re bound to find a leak. The Thermal Leak Detector can recognize any change in temperature by as little as 1, 5 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit although the user has the freedom to change these parameters. The device shines a red light to indicate a hot spot or a blue light for a cold spot. It will be available soon for a retail price of $39.99.
