The Black+Decker TLD100 thermal leak detector helps you increase the efficiency of your home's insulation by finding leaky areas that can lead to higher heating and cooling bills. You'll instantly identify problem areas around drafty windows and doors, and uncover hidden leaks and insulation "soft spots" around your home. Check windows, ducts, and walls with the thermal reference light that indicates hot and cold spots. You can even use the detector to diagnose engine misfires or check your refrigerator and freezer settings. The thermal leak detector makes it easy to monitor your home's energy efficiency by finding areas that let heat out and cold air in. Simply set the detector's temperature tolerances to one, five, or 10 degrees and scan the light across the area you want to inspect. The light will change to red for warmer spots and blue for cooler spots to detect air leaks in both warm and cool weather. The detector also displays temperatures in either Fahrenheit or Celsius on the LCD screen. Check for drafts or leaks around your fireplace, recessed lighting, electrical outlets, along floor molding, or any place that may have improper seals, caulking, or seams that aren't immediately visible. An included booklet gives you tips and instructions on how to seal leaks and improve insulation.

Must have!
I bought an (now) 83 year old uninsulated five bedroom home. I blew in insulation myself and this tool was needed. I found area's that I had missed due to extra blocking in most walls. If not for this tool, I would not have known of spots I needed to address again. In total I drilled 384 3" holes in plaster & the leak detector made the job go a lot faster as it showed me where I needed to add more insulation. I recommend this to a lot of people. I use it for a lot too like adjusting the water temp at the tap, both from the hot water tank & on demand system. I now use 85% less energy to heat my home & water and I thank B&D for this tool.

Great tool for a good price

The Black&Decker Thermal Leak Detector is an excellent tool for locating cold and warm air intrusions in the living area. This can definitely help reduce energy costs. I've used it to find a lot of air leaks in my seventy year old home. The instructions provided are concise and easy to apply to using the tool. Overall,I would recommend this product.

Worked so well I purchased one for my Dad!

This gauge has worked to seal up both houses I've used it in and decided to purchase this one as a gift for my father when bringing it over to use in one of the rooms were were working in. Works great!

Great Item

I have a bunch of infrared Thermometers but this makes it easy to gauge the temp change just by looking at the color of the light. Love It! Aim point and you can see if it's too hot or to cold from the temp you set and you can correct the leak as you see fit.

Great buy

Used this item to help me seal my house better. We were losing heat way too fast. Found that my outside doors had poor weatherstripping. Product was easy to use. I like the color dot feature that gives you a visual indicator as well as a digital number read out. Degree range selector let's you fine tune the difference or tolerance of allowed temperature increase or drops. Would and most likely buy another one.

Locate the leak

I bought this item to help me find a leak in my air ducting and it seems to work because I found some leaks I wasn't aware of around the rear door and etc.

Worked Right Out of the Box

Of course, I have only had the product for a few days, but it works fine. I use it when I do a heat studies in locating poor insulated areas in houses. Although it does need a small 9 volt battery, which was not included in the box, and that's something that the manufacture may want to reconsider: however that's not a very big deal it would be more convenient. Anyway it's one of the best tools in my tool box that I rely on to discover unforeseen heat loss areas in homes at this time.

see where your cold air is really coming in

Very easy to use! Are various youtube videos out there on how it works. After shopping around, price through Walmart was definitely the best.

Good vallue and appears to work as advertised.

I have rated this product as Good mainly because it just arrived yesterday so I have not had the opportunity to really do a lot with it. It does, however, appear to work as advertised. it is easy to use and understand.
