I find this IR Thermometer to be a great tool. When I pull my boat/trailer to the ramp, I check the bearing and the tire temperature with the thermometer. If one of the four hubs is more then a few degrees warmer then the others, it tells me the bearings need service. I also use it to do a quick check of my A/C systems, windows for leaks, insulation in the walls…... For the price, I think it is one of the best tools in my toolbox.

The small instruction manual provides NO contact information for the manufacturer or reseller. The preferred contact is by e-mail at onlynewstuff@verizon.net . Reseller says to convert to Fahrenheit, the button must be depressed 10 seconds. No way to set the default to display the temperature in Fahrenheit first. Always displays Celsius temperature initially. Subtracted 2 stars for this. Will not read correct temperature of water or through water so cannot determine accuracy with boiling water. This method works with most IR thermometers. I would not generally recommend this.

Product Overview

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 aim, depress the trigger, and scan the laser beam across the area you want to inspect. The temperature on your LCD will change and you can easily find those problem areas. 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. Plugging leaks can save up to 25-Percent on heating and cooling costs! Check temperatures of surfaces you can't touch (car engines, around the fire places, etc)
