Does anyone out there use Ultrasound on commericial air handler's to test for leaks? and if so, have you been able to justify the cost savings? by the purchase of your ultrasound gun or the lost air you detected? also are there any formula's for detecting these savings you have found? any info would be very helpful....Thank you

i dont own a ultrasonic, but used one last summer that my boss lent me, and yes, you can find leaks alot quicker than other leak dectecting methods, of course it always matters where the unit is located, their was alot of times i couldnt use it because of surrounding noises. I dont know about saving all that much money but, i know alot of techs have them. their also good for finding leaks in tires, pnuematics, steam, etc. i really like them, im trying to get my company to buy me one, but i guess wish in one hand and $#%^ in the other right!

I found them very helpful to find leaks on evaporator circuits when my sniffer goes crazy, the ultrasound helps narrow down the area and pin-point the leak. Its found leaks in crazy places for me. It is tough if there is a lot of surroinding noise if you can turn off other equipment etc.
