Ray guns in the library!

Are you trying to button up the house this fall to save on your heating or energy bills?   We have two devices that could help you.

The first one is called a Minitemp.

Pull the trigger, aim the beam at walls, ceilings, floors, and foundations (but not people nor at reflective surfaces such as windows) and find where the cold spots are, where insulation is missing, where outside air is penetrating.   This point and shoot gadget can be found in our catalog under “Minitemp” and can be reserved or borrowed just like a book.

The second is the Kill-A-Watt – an electricity usage monitor that you can plug in between your electrical outlet and any appliance to measure exactly how much electricity each device is using.  Provided by EfficiencyMaine  http://www.efficiencymaine.com/  it, too, is available for checkout.
