During the winter, cooler temperatures can significantly increase your gas or electricity bills. As the temperature drops, it takes more and more energy to keep your home warm and cozy. One way you can help reduce your heating (and cooling) costs is by reducing the number of air leaks or cold drafts in and out of your home. BlindSpotz Cold Spot Sensors are an innovative new product that helps you find air leaks in your home, as well as offering solutions to fixing the cold spots you might discover.
BlindSpotz DIY cold sensors are very easy to use. Once you remove a sensor from the package (there are 8 sensors per package,) you rub the edge of the sensor to activate it for deployment. Then, just peel and stick a sensor in various places around your house to determine which areas are susceptible to cold spots, such as around outlets, near windows, in closets, or around attic or basement entrances.
After 48 hours, the color-activated sensors will display the recorded temperatures for that area. When the 50 and 55F color bars are activated, it’s an indication that you have a cold spot or draft that you need to fix.
We place sensors in various locations around the house – paying particular attention in the basement. I was happy to see normal results in almost all the sensors. The only anomaly registering by the basement bedroom window. We’ve noticed the cooler temperature of the room and know that addressing this draft will make the room warmer.
How to Seal Air Leaks in Your Home
Once you’ve used your BlindSpotz Cold Sensors to find the cold spots and air leaks in your home, you’re ready to start sealing air leaks. Fortunately, sealing air leaks in your home is an easy DIY project. For most fixes, all you’ll need is some caulking and weatherstripping.
Use caulk to seal cracks and openings up to 1/4″ wide such as around electrical boxes or outlets. Weatherstripping does wonders in closing gaps around windows, doors, and any openings from the attic.
BlindSpotz offers a unique service where you can email or upload pictures of your BlindSpotz sensor, and they’ll provide a variety of ways to fix the problem, as well as discounts on products or services you might need for repairs at participating retailers. BlindSpotz Cold Spot Sensors are available for sale online at Amazon.com for $9.99 + free Prime shipping.
