When it's cold outside and you turn up the heat, you likely think, "here's where my electric bill goes down and my fuel bill skyrockets!" Of course it doesn't matter if you heat your home with oil, natural gas, propane, or any other fuel - it's expensive and you certainly don't want to waste it. You make sure your doors and windows are shut tightly and you probably take extra steps, spending extra money - every year - weather-sealing your home to prevent heat loss and cold drafts...
...But did you know that your central air conditioning registers, return vents and whole-house fan shutters and louvers are HUGE contributors to heat and energy loss? You've surely felt drafts from your central air conditioning registers and vents... And it doesn't matter that you close the registers - those closures are FAR from air tight! The fact is, to eliminate vent drafts, and prevent heat from escaping into your ducts, you need to cover each and every one of your central air conditioning registers and vents - most importantly your large, central air return vents and certainly your whole-house fan shutters and louvers, should you have them. They're nothing but gaping heat-loss holes - especially whole-house fan shutters and louvers - they allow heat to escape DIRECTLY to your attic! BRRRR!! (After all... Most vents and registers are in the ceiling. And... heat rises! It's simple physics we all learned at a very young age.)
If you don't cover all of your registers and vents, you're losing heat, wasting energy and money and dealing with uncomfortable drafts. Thankfully, you're in the right place, because VentSTOP is the first vent cover SYSTEM that is designed to allow you to easily, effectively and affordably cover ALL of your central air conditioning registers and vents - no matter how big or small they are.
The bottom line: You CAN lower your energy and heating bills, simply by covering your air conditioning registers, return vents and whole-house fans this winter!
