Hi, You can use a infrared imager and view through it to see where your walls are warmer and also you can use a lazer digital temperature meter to do much the same.
This will show you the uneven heat loss through uninsulated walls and insulated walls so you'll pretty much know where you stand. Hope this helps: Jimiwane
