    Awesome tool for the price
             
    I am a recent homeowner and have been replacing insulation and replacing sheet rock one room at a time. This tool has been great for validating the exterior wall temps of rooms we have insulated to room we have not yet. It has also helped pinpoint that windows I thought were drafty were not the problem but it was outlets on exterior walls (luckily a much easier fix). Also a huge help for finding which door sweeps are worn out and comparing hot water radiator temps for valve balancing.
    Pros:

    Extremely simple to use.

    Cons:

    Too many friends / family asked to borrow it when I was talking about it.

    GOOD PRODUCT FOR THE PRICE
             
    I BOUGHT THIS THERMAL LEAK DETECTOR TO FIND HOT & COLD SPOTS IN MY MOBILE HOME. I RECEIVED IT TODAY, & HAVE ALREADY USED IT TO FIND SPOTS THAT NEED ATTENTION. IT IS EASY TO USE, & REQUIRES NO EXPERIENCE WITH THIS TYPE OF PRODUCT.I FOUND THE TEMP READING TO BE THE SAME, ABOUT 6' AWAY FROM AN OBJECT, BEFORE THE READING STARTS TO CHANGE.
    Pros:

    THE CHANGING 3 COLORED LIGHTS, ARE A PLUS, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP LOOKING AT A THIN LASER, & BACK AT THE DIGITAL READOUT. WATCH THE COLOR SPOT & WHEN IT CHANGES COLOR, THEN YOU CAN READ THE TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE IN THE READOUT.I LIKE LOCKING IN THE REFERENCE POINT, THAT I HAVEN'T SEEN IN OTHER PRODUCTS OF THE SAME TYPE.I ALSO LIKE THAT YOU PUSH THE BUTTON TO TURN IT ON, & THEN YOU CAN LET IT GO. THEN YOU PUSH THE BUTTON AGAIN TO SHUT IT OFF.IT ALSO TURNS OFF AFTER 10 MINUTES AUTOMATICALLY. YOU CAN ALSO TURN OFF THE CHANGING LIGHTS, & USE IT LIKE OTHER DETECTORS. I READ ONLINE ON HOW TO USE IT, & KNEW ALL THERE WAS TO KNOW WHEN IT ARRIVED.

    Cons:

    IT COULD HAVE HAD A 9V BATTERY INCLUDED.

    Nothing. I would highly recommend it.

    Handy little tool.
             
    I was able to find a major point of thermal loss within minutes of opening the box.
    Pros:

    Very easy to use and gives you control of the threshold for thermal differences.

    Cons:

    Nothing to speak of.

    Overall a good unit,, if the price was in the $25.00 area more home owners and contractors would purchase them.
             
    ok
    Pros:

    Helps to save energy costs and pin point areas needing attention.

    Cons:

    Unit readout would be easier to see if it was an LED instead of an LCD. The unit could have been made a bit tougher for bumps and bangs, like rubber around the edges of the plastic and for the hand grip area.

    Great!
             
    Opened early for Christmas in order to use it. Used it for windows and doorways to reveal where heat loss was occurring. Numerous areas suffer from heat (thermal) loss...so will have to add additional insulation in the Spring.
    Pros:

    The digital temperature readout / comparison.

    Cons:

    Can't think of any
