"Check ebay now, there is one for $ 100.00. Thermoanemanometer measures velocity in fpm, and with a simple calculation you can convert to cfm."

"It seems like not only the features and the uses of the device seem to be overstated, but also the price is under-estimated. It seems to be closer to $300 on eBay. "

"After looking it up I see that it reads temperature of the probe at a set figure. It reads based on how much it cools down and displays that into data. no flow equals no cool down  It does not read pressure at all. Very cool device. Still…"

"It doesn't work like you apparently think it does. Yes, the anemometer head gives you feet per minute of airflow (or some other velocity measurement), but to convert that velocity into a cubic footage measurement you need an exact measurement…"

"If you have a 300 square foot bedroom, and the cfm is under 400 (roughly) the room becomes a low priority. Also, the Alnor works great around windows especially when the sun is out ( which plays havoc with IR) and windows treatments are present, you…"
