Winter is setting in, and you know what that means: it’s time to turn on the heat. Many of us, however, are using more heat than necessary due to thermal leaks. This nifty Thermal Leak Detector from Black & Decker could potentially save up to 20 percent in energy costs by pointing out trouble spots.

Chip in a few dollars a month to help support independent cleantech coverage that helps to accelerate the cleantech revolution!

The $40 device shines a blue spotlight on temperature changes as small as 1 degree.  Of course, the tool can’t actually help you get rid of the leaks— for that, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Black & Decker’s Thermal Leak Detector will be available for purchase in Spring 2009…just in time to save you from excess air-conditioning costs.
