You may not need to replace all your vents. To determine which vents to replace, find your airflow scenario below.
Note: Flair replaces supply vents - the vents that blow air into your home. Flair does not replace return vents - the vents used to circulate air back into your HVAC system.
- Too Much Airflow: this room is too hot when the heat is on AND too cold when the AC is on. You may find that you often close vents in this room. For this room, get a Puck and replace vents. The Smart Vent will close automatically to prevent the room from overheating or overcooling.
- Too Little Airflow: this room doesn't get cool enough when the AC is on AND doesn't get warm enough when the heat is on. You may find that that when vents in this room are open, it still doesn't get enough heat or AC. For this room, get a Puck. For each surrounding room, get a Puck and Smart Vents. The Smart Vents will close in other rooms to push more heat or AC to this room.
- Combination: Your home may have several rooms with different conditions. You may have uneven temperatures in different rooms. In this case, you'll get Pucks and Smart Vents throughout your home.
- Smart Home: you want smart everything! Get Pucks and Vents for your entire home. You can skip small bathrooms and most closets.
