The heat saving vent cover has been designed to eliminate heat loss through air conditioner vents during colder weather.When it gets cold you need to close the vent blades to eliminate heat loss through the ceiling vents. If you don’t there is significant loss of warmth from the heated areas of the house into the air conditioner ducting system. Even if a cover is placed over the exterior air conditioner unit the ducts still remove a large amount of warmth from the living areas of the house or office.
If it gets warm again the vents need to be re-opened to allow the air conditioner to cool the areas; meaning the vent blades need to be repositioned so that air flow is directed to those parts of each room that need to be cooled. When the weather cools again this procedure has to again be reversed. At the end of winter this entire process is repeated. This isn’t always done as people tire of the process and tend to leave the vent blades open throughout winter. The Vent Cover makes the process much simpler and safer as they only need to be popped on and off; the vent blades are still in their desired position.
There are two options for installing Vent Cover
You can remove the vents and slide the collar over the top before replacing the vent.
You could fix the collar directly onto the border of the vent.
Vent Covers are made from light weight thermal moulded HIPS (high impact polystyrene) plastic. They are long lasting and easily cleaned. They look neat and tidy.
The Vent Cover features:
There is no need to change the position of the vent blades as they remain in the position they have been set indefinitely.
Save on heating bills as the heat generated is retained and not lost through the air conditioner ducting system.
Much faster than opening and closing each individual vent blade.
The heat saving vent covers impede the flow of smoke, ash and dust from wood heaters meaning the ducting system and vent blades are kept cleaner.
In the event of a fire the heat saving vent cover would block oxygen from feeding the fire.
Benefits are gained when heat loss is reduced requiring less energy use to maintain comfortable room temperature. Once the nitial installation is complete the Vent Cover takes very little time to put up or remove.
If you have replaced your evaporative air-conditioner with a recycled air conditioner you can use Vent Cover to permanently cover the old vents. This is a much simpler and more cost effective solution than to have someone remove the old vents, gyprock over the hole left in the ceiling and then re-paint the entire ceiling. Phew!!
