What is a thermal leak detector?

The thermal leak detector can detect energy leaks in your home by showing you the temperature differences with a coloured LED spot. This helps to spot thermal air leaks and identify areas for additional insulation and/or draught proofing.

Keeping this in view, how does a thermal detector work?

A heat detector is a fire alarm device designed to respond when the convected thermal energy of a fire increases the temperature of a heat sensitive element. The thermal mass and conductivity of the element regulate the rate flow of heat into the element. It is triggered when temperature increases.

how can I tell if I have a heat leak in my house? On a cold day with the heat on inside your home, place your hand around the edges of all exterior doors, windows, and bathroom and kitchen air vents and fans. If you feel cold air on your hand, then you have an air leak. You can also use the hand test to detect leaks around electrical outlets.

Then, can Thermal Imaging find water leaks?

A thermal imaging meter can help you trace the water back to its origin. It's an incredibly useful tool, and not only to find the source of leaks. However, with a moisture meter, you may be able to detect dampness inside the walls of a room. Thermal imaging technology can help you do a better job — and make more money.

How do you determine heat?

These instruments measure the heat radiation emitted by the heat source. Examples of these types of devices are infrared cameras and detectors. An infrared array detector used to measure the heat energy from objects in space. An outdoor thermometer used to measure the average thermal energy in the air.
