The Auto Vent Cover (AVC) vent cover is for covering a 5.5 inch x 11.375 inch heat register/vent only. Please measure your heat registers/vents to make sure they don’t seem to be larger than this size so the AVC completely covers your heat register/vents. The AVC is patent pending and made from tough, laser cut material. The AVC works by automatically opening and closing with airflow through the vent to seal a wall or floor vent/heat register to keep heat as well as air conditioned and/or humidified air in your room/house where it belongs and prevent it from draining out through the vent into your ductwork like water drains out of a sink. The AVC works well because your home’s ductwork is usually not insulated very well (if at all insulated) so heat and AC cooled air is quickly lost when it enters the ductwork. Because of this, in many cases you’re better off simply the use of the AVC than going to the expense and difficulty of trying to wrap your duct work with insulation. Works amazingly well with portable space heaters to heat a cold room fast with less energy. Improves your humidifier’s energy efficiency since your heater will not have to run as continuously to heat your room and will shut off sooner. You may find you don’t even need a heater or if you find you still need one you might be able to get by with a more energy efficient low watt heater. The AVC also works with whole house and portable AC units to help keep air conditioned rooms cooler on hot summer days. In addition, the AVC can be a life saver when used in a bedroom such as a baby’s bedroom because by sealing off the bedroom’s vents (and closing the bedroom door) the migration of smoke from a fire into the room can be stopped or delayed, thereby giving you or a fireman more time to rescue your child before the child’s room is overcome with smoke or fire. In the end, the AVC helps soundproof rooms by deadening noise coming through the ductwork and also keeps dirt, dust and debris out of the duct work.
The brand new Auto Open/Close Vent Cover helps heat, cool and humidify rooms by automatically closing against your heat register to prevent heated, cooled and/or humidified air in the room from escaping through the heat register into your ductwork – like water drains out of a sink. Opens automatically when air flows through the heat register after your furnace turns on. Works well because ductwork is usually not insulated and heat backflowing into the ductwork from a room is quickly lost.
Seals floor and wall vents (heat registers) to keep heat in the room where it belongs. In case you are the use of a space or portable heater to heat a cold room it’s almost like having a second heater. Energy efficient. Saves energy by keeping heat in the room which allows your portable heater to shut off sooner. May even eliminate the need for a portable heater or allow you to use it on its low heat setting. May also enable use of low watt energy efficient heater.
Makes even the best humidifiers perform better by enabling higher humidity levels with increases up to 25% imaginable if desired. Helps soothe dry skin and sinuses quickly. Works with dehumidifiers too by sealing off the ductwork so the dehumidifier does not have to dehumidify the ductwork as well as the room.
Enjoy less frequent refilling and cleaning of your humidifier. The Auto Vent Cover enables your humidifier to humidify any room without running as continuously. This means you won’t have to clean or refill your humidifier as continuously. The water savings are truly amazing and you might be able to go 2 to 3 days before having to refill your humidifier’s tank. Makes life with your humidifier easy!
May help save a baby’s or child’s life when used in their bedroom in the event of a fire by sealing off the vents to stop the entry (migration) of smoke into the room, thereby giving a parent or fireman a little extra but precious time to rescue the child. Helps soundproof rooms too by deadening sound traveling through vents sealed with the Auto Vent Cover. Keeps dust and debris out of your duct work too!
