Black & Decker Thermal Leak Detector

Shopping for a handyman? Consider a thermal leak detector. The handheld device uses thermal imaging to detect deviations in wall surface temperatures – not unlike a stud finder seeks out metal or wood framing.

Dad will surely enjoy marauding about the house pinpointing chinks in its armor. With an energy leak located, your handyman father now has another home project to keep him occupied. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

Black & Decker's detector will cost you about $49 and the tool company says repairing small leaks can save you up to 20 percent on heating and cooling energy costs.
