A thermal imaging camera uses special sensors and a color map to illustrate the different temperatures of whatever you look at through the camera lens. This great tool shows you what your eyes can't. You’ll see hot and cold spots where insulation is missing, identify where air is getting in or out of your house, and more.
Starting in February 2019, Alexandria Library customers can reserve a camera just like a book through the library catalog, and it will be shipped to your local library branch for pick up.
In partnership with Transportation and Environmental Services, the Alexandria Library is making these cameras available so that residents can inspect their home or business for hot and cold spots, which often indicate energy saving opportunities.
