    My cousins boyfriend has a really nice thermal imager. He brought it in and snapped some pictures.

    Enjoy as much as I did.

    Here's the rest. Goes to show you that a mustache really does help you conserve heat.

    He pointed it at my door as well. It was neat to confirm what I expected all along. The door handles and the lower left corner were really cold, and you can feel the cold coming in from outside. But what I didn't realize was the upper right was letting air in as well around the hinges. I can only wish to find a decent thermal camera. I'd like to be able to see what else I can improve on the house.

    I'd love to get some outside pictures of my house to see where the heat is leaking from.

    id love to get a TID but unfortunately unless you find a hell of a deal in the used market it doesnt seem like you can get anywhere close to one for much under $5000... and thats a bit too much to spend on essentially a toy

    although you could make a sweet little side business showing people where they are losing energy
    :hmm:

    That is pretty cool. Id like to have a chance to play with one of those. You should pitch E's idea to your cousins boyfriend and take 30 percent of the profits.

    Her fur is very thin. She gives off a lot more heat than the cats do. Cats are super insulated.

    A friend of mine is a blackhawk mechanic in the army. He borrowed some IR goggles to find heat leaks in his house, but didn't even offer to do mine. :'(
