Save Money and Energy by Closing the HVAC Register in Unused Rooms

October 3, 2011 Leave a comment

It costs too much for heating and air conditioning today to waste money. If you’re not using Junior’s room since he went off to college, or if no one’s been in the basement rec room for six months, you should close the air registers. But the control lever is way up there and you’re standing down here; how are you going to reach it? Don’t risk falling off that wobbly chair, and don’t bat at it with a broom handle. Simply replace the old register with the Click Vent and it’s then a simple button push to open or close the motorized damper. The RF remote has one button to open and one to close, with LED confirmation of the command: green for open, red for closed. The damper operates on eight AAA batteries and the remote on one 12V A23 battery (all batteries included). Read more

Stop the Thermostat Wars and Save Money with a Filtered AC Diffuser

August 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Comfort First CFFD 77500 Comfort First Filtered AC DiffuserWe’ve all seen them – AC registers with pieces of cardboard taped over the vents. It’s just a fact of life that some people like it hot and some prefer a cooler environment. And no matter where you set the thermostat, there will always be at least one person complaining that “It’s too hot” or “It’s freezing in here!” Here’s a permanent solution: an AC register with separate, controllable vent louvers so each person can control his or her own environment. A simple lever controls the louver from wide open to completely closed, and can be adjusted easily from the floor. Since the air is now coming out of the diffuser in 4 directions, and not straight down, people won’t have an annoying draft down their necks.
This AC diffuser also has filters built in, so all the allergens and dust are captured. Since inside air these days is typically far more polluted than the air outside, this should help reduce sick days.

Four-Way Adjustable Flow Patterns
Adjust one side to direct air slightly downward, another to bounce air off the ceiling, while the other two can blow straight out. Unlimited variations!

Cleaner Air
Studies have shown that indoor air today is likely to be more polluted than the air outside. The filters built in to the Filtered Diffuser capture contaminants down to 0.3 micron, including bacteria, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), dust, dust mites, pollens, and other allergens.

Eliminates Air Draft Complaints
With superior air distribution, directed exactly where each person wants it, complaints of being hit by a draft are eliminated.

Saves Energy
Allows for a higher thermostat setting. A NASA study found that a 1° change in setting can result in a 10% energy savings.

Saves Money
No longer will people be running personal space heaters because the office AC is freezing them out. Also, there will be fewer sick days.

Cleaner Ceilings
No more dirty smudge on the ceiling surrounding the AC registers.

Improves Tenant Satisfaction
Fewer workers comp claims and employee lawsuits leads to higher occupancy rate by retaining tenants.

Booster Fan that Automatically Starts Up and Powers Down in Conjunction with Your Furnace or Air Conditioning for More Effective Climate Control

August 4, 2011 Leave a comment


Make your existing HVAC system more effective with this duct booster fan. The fan features a 115 VAC power cord and built-in Pressure Response Control (PRC) unit to automatically operate when your forced air system is running. When positive pressure is sensed, the PRC turns the fan on to channel the hot or cool air into the selected room. Pressure checks are performed repeatedly to determine whether the fan should continue to run. The fan will even continue to run for a short time after the heating or cooling system has turned off to ensure every last bit of the heated or cooled air makes its way out of the duct.

Heavy gauge steel housing and metal prop fan blades make this duct booster fan ultra-durable. If installed where your system’s filters are properly positioned and maintained, this fan or its motor will not require any cleaning. The fan’s operation will be so smooth and quiet you might forget that it is running.

  • Heavy gauge housing with metal prop fan blades
  • Can be installed in less than 10 minutes – insert it into the duct run and plug it in
  • Withstands air temperatures up to 150 degrees F (65 degrees C)
  • Can be installed in metal or flex ducting
