    Hi Steven,

     

    As far as we know, no one manufactures a 8x10 Smart Vent. The competitor you're referring to uses what's called trim kits. These, in our opinion, defeat the purpose of a Smart Vent by permanently occluding air flow from vents. We cannot recommend their use for that very reason.

    As for being out of stock, we are currently doing a full production run, which may take a few months for stock to replenish. We had forecast our inventory to remain in stock through the summer, but demand greatly outpaced our supply in June and as such, we fell out of stock at that point. 

    We hope to announce our new sizes later this year. 

    We thank you for your concern and apologize for the inconvenience with being out of stock.

    In a separate post I too indicated that the summer cooling season is a high priority for installing Flair vents in our home. 

    As for the delays due to manufacturing, I worked quite a bit with purchasing people on the IT side. Can't Flair put in place purchase order(s) that allow releases so that smaller and quicker inventory replenishments can be accomplished? The manufacturer gets a fairly large order over a year say, but then fulfills it using smaller runs. Wouldn't this get Flair a good price and at the same time address inventory issues?

    I really hope to see the new sizes soon! 8x10 specially! I'm in Texas, too!

    Have been following Flair for awhile waiting for 8x10 to show up!

    I also need the 8x10 size to be able to use Flair. I have two vents that size.

    I'd imagine if a year has passed and there is no update that they aren't really considering the 8x10 size.

    Has anybody tried Keen with the trim to confirm what the Flair support person wrote as an answer?

    If not, I will try them and post here an update, I planning to buy three vents with three trims.

    They have a money back guarantee.

    Put me down on the list of lost customers due to 8x10 lack of size.  Given the non-movement on this topic, I guess my only option is Keen at this time.

    Would really love this as well, being that it seems to be very common in Texas homes, along with 4x8 in bathrooms. At the moment I cannot purchase any vents from Flair because none of their sizes match the ducts in my home.

    It's crazy that the demands for 8x10 is not being provided still, I've been waiting for over a year now, and seeing the comments dated 4 years ago is shocking. Just to add an extra inch on each side on the 6x10, pretty sure it would boost yall sales.

    I've completely abandoned the whole Flair eco system for this reason...

    Any update on the 8x10 vents?  As Brad Goertz mentioned above, these are really common in Texas homes, and we'd love to use your products if they were made available!

    I'm interested in 8x10 also.  That's all we have in my house and I have a few rooms that could really use these vents.

    Steve R, Flair is keeping track of recommendations emailed to them, so email them and encourage your friends who want this in 8x10 to do the same!

    I wish I still had the same amount of enthusiasm but its been 4 years and Flair's only response has more or less been "our competitors don't make one, so neither do we, maybe someday".  Looking at their blog and media releases it seems the company is mostly dead in the water, maybe waiting for a buyout offer that never came and now chasing what essentially amounts to marketing and advertising subsidies from partnerships with utility companies, starting in a state with objectively moderate weather.  If they really had interest in "meaningful energy reduction while improving comfort in people's lives," they would have focused effecting change in parts of the country where A/C is a necessity for the majority of the year.  You can crack a window to cool down most of the year in CA. I can count with my hands the amount of times I've opened a window in TX, and that was because I burned something on the stove.
