That is very cool, no doubt. Would this really work on an interior wall though? I can imagine where loaded wire might be a bit warmer than normal, but unloaded and interior wall? I'd think it would be the same temp as the surrounding material.x4 box drywalled over at the peak of the cathedral ceiling:
Only chance on an interior wall would be if you could produce a 10°F or greater difference on the two sides by using heating or AC.That is very cool, no doubt. Would this really work on an interior wall though?
Actually, what you're seeing there is the warm side of a cold ceiling, the outlet box, ridge board and rafters are better thermal conductors than insulated rafter cavities, so they appear cooler than the rest of the ceiling.The box in the ceiling would have acted like a heat sink for radiant solar energy, just like the spine of the ceiling appears to have done, unless that line is the wire.
I had a kitchen installer bury an outlet (intended for the Microwave oven) behind a kitchen cabinet. When the contractor was alerted to it, he said; He'll bet me $1,000.00 that there is no outlet there. I said; Start paying now!:yes::no::drinkon't Drink and Drive!!!I'd imagine this contractor hasnt been hanging drywall for very long if he just put sheetrock over an outlet! I would certaintly call him back and have them take care of it, or at least have them pay to have it taken care of.
Sounds like ya cured 'em :thumbup:then started kicking holes in the wall until he found the box:laughing:.
He told me I had an option for locating the boxes in the future: I either could cut a large section of wall out, like 3'x3', or I could use his "size 12" method:thumbup:. After a couple of houses locating boxes with my foot, the sheetrockers got real asstute at cutting the boxes out:laughing:
The 12" or the or the 3'x3' method are very good when you're dealing with sheetrock. But when the boxes are buried in concrete it's a different matter altogether. On one of the jobs, more than one box was buried in concrete. We traced the location from the Blueprint and started chopping away!:furious::no::drinkon't Drink and Drive!!!Sounds like ya cured 'em :thumbup:
