The Optis LaserSight LS infared Thermometer with Cross Hair Laser Sighting provides an accurate form of temperature measurement on the smallest of objects. The hand held LaserSight LS is a perfect tool for the maintenance technician, or Lab engineer that needs to scan the equipment while in operation to evaluate the operating temperatures to ensure the equipment is operating correctly. However, it is not just the professional technician who can benefit from such a tool.
These laser guns are very simple to operate and to read, which makes them a worthwhile tool, even for those with little experience in heating and cooling a space. They provide an accurate temperature reading of a very minute space, which means that a homeowner can get a much more accurate assessment of which areas of the home need to be addressed in order to improve overall efficiency.
The infrared thermometer can call attention to areas lacking proper insulation, to defective door seals, or to poorly performing window heat barriers. By determining where there is excessive heat transfer, a homeowner can make decisions regarding how to best improve efficiency of the home. This might mean adding more insulation, wrapping windows, or investing in foam tape for around the door. These relatively small purchases can often make a large difference in how well the heating system is able to maintain the temperature of the home. That means that its workload is reduced, that it runs less often, that the energy consumption drops, and that utility bills are cut down.
It’s not just the heating system that can be benefited by the temperature gun. It is also possible to use this tool to test the effectiveness of a window air conditioner, a refrigerator, or oven thermometers.
Considering all of this, it is clear that a tool like the infrared laser thermometer gun is certainly a worthwhile investment for homeowners, particularly those who have noticed their utility bills climbing higher and higher, or for those considering home renovations.
