Can you link to any examples so we can see what you mean?

Sorry, I dont have any example with me, basically i am looking for a effect which appears due to transparent smoke for example due to heat waves, jet washes, and other thermal-currents that may cause istortion patterns.

What about using somethng like the "Ripple" effects filter? Maybe duplicate the Background Layer, apply the filter, then lower the opacity to let the original show through, or something like that.

You could also place a small flame (maybe use a hair dryer?) below and slightly in front of the lens, to create actual distortions in the air.

You could also try pouring a small amount of alcohol into a dish, place it in the foreground, and light it. It will create a heat ripple above the flames that should look similar to the heat haze that creates the "quicksilver" or "mirage" effect off a hot road or a desert. I'd suggest caution, though :).
