While cooking sugar into candy and not being able to locate the thermometer, you instead stand over the pot with your thermal imaging camera.

No reason to get sugary goo all over your thermometer. 

 

Break time isn't over yet, I still have some coffee left...

I lost my wirless connection for my laptop the other day. Couldn't find a Cat5 line to hook it up directly...so went to the truck and got my retrotec umbilical cord for the blower door...hey, it works!
Good call Gary!
You have a dent on your head from coming face-to-face with a raccoon in a crawlspace.
I can relate to that. I have a coworker who wears a climbing helmet to do inspections. I used to tease him about it. Now I am trrying to get a hold of one ; ) If I ever shaved my head, it would release some stories for sure.

You might be an energy auditor if...

 

you explain to your spouse about the settings of your oven "bake, convection bake, and broil" by going into the 3 methods of heat transfer. It gets even more boring for your spouse when you start to explain the emissivity of the tin foil when deciding on which side to wrap the potato.

You might be an energy auditor if...

  - You use your blower door to dry out your house after it gets flooded.

  - You perform a restaurant lighting audit while waiting to be served.

  - You educate smokers by having them blow on your CO detector and set off the 35ppm alarm.

  - You lift the toilet tank lid off to inspect (and maybe adjust) the flush efficiency.

  - You don't look in the medicine chest at someone's home, you look at the gpm rating on the shower head.

 

You might be a redneck energy auditor if....

  - You bring a bean dip and a gas sniffer to a party.

  - You use butyl-backed tape instead of duct tape to hold your fender on.

  - You use your IR camera to identify where the squirrels are hiding in your attic insulation.

  - You two-part foam the rust holes on your car to pass inspection.

  - You boost the campfire with a Duct Blaster.

- you pi$$ off  all of your friends whenever you visit their homes, by feeling around the outlets and inside the cabinet under the kitchen sink.
Do it every chance I get. No one wants to hear it, but I can not resist and give it to them anyway.

Hahaha!  Dale - you could have a second job doing stand up at BPI or RESNET conferences!

Thanks, Kent, I'll consider it when I'm ready for a career change.
LOL!!! These are great! Really wish the CO detector worked with getting friends to quit smoking, but at least you can try and educate them. :)
