I'm trying to trace warm air through my heating ducts & am looking for some kind of synthetic smoke or color that I can see coming out of the floor registers when I introduce it into the duct from a remote section. Anyone know where I can buy such a thing?

Thanks for your reply. Anyone ever use any of these smoke emitters to check airflow in ducts?
