Is this a kitchen cabinet or a slow cooker?
Chris Ann Cleland actually came up with that title.
While doing my typical thermal image sweep of this house I wondered why there was no HVAC register in the bathroom.
Well, there was one! And thermal imaging is the perfect way to find it!
It was there, but had just been covered up by the floor tile!
While it might not have been providing much heat to the room, it did provide a good spot to dry wet socks.
Continuing the sweep Mighty Mo found something else.
When looking at the kitchen I noticed that the kitchen cabinet was sitting on top of the register there.
That would make for one comfortably warm kitchen cabinet!
Hence the title, is it a kitchen cabinet or a slow cooker?
Chris Ann was there and suggested that it might just work for slow cooking!
And even though insulated you can see that the tile floors, over a crawl space under this house, were chilly. They will not improve during cold weather.
My recommendation: sometimes thermal cameras reveal interesting things! You never know what will be revealed. In this case we found two rooms not sufficiently provided with heating or air conditioning. It pays to have a Mighty Mo in your corner. And an experienced thermographer!
