Thermal Detection Devices

The Mount Prospect Library is now offering thermal detection devices for checkout.  These “Minitemp Noncontact Thermometers” are designed for detecting heat leaks around doors and windows. Now that the colder weather has arrived, these devices are useful for determining where to add weather-stripping or if a new window is necessary to conserve heat.

The thermal detection devices are available at the Reference Desk on the second floor. They can be borrowed for one week.

These devices are made possible through the Mount Prospect Sustainability Education Program, presented in partnership with the Village of Mount Prospect and the Mount Prospect Public Library and funded through the U.S Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG).
