With the rapid rise in energy costs it is ever more important that we make our homes as efficient as possible. One of the greatest threats to the efficiency of a building is air leaks. These leaks can occur around windows, doors, where utilities enter the home, and many more places. Elima Draft ceiling vent covers are the perfect solution to one major cause of leaks: HVAC ductwork.
Many homes are built with two separate heating and cooling systems: one for heat and another for air conditioning. This is most common when the heat source is from hot water radiators, radiant heated floors and walls, or electric baseboard heat. Some homes in the southern United States may not have any heat system at all. In all of these cases, air-conditioning systems can be a major source of air leaks in the winter months. Warm air escapes and cold air infiltrates. What is the solution? Magnetic vent covers.
Why Choose Elima-Draft Vent Covers?
