Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to know to purchase one of your Diffusers?

We recommend measuring the size of the air duct opening to make sure the AC Vent Cover neck will fit into the opening. Our product dimensions are categorized by the neck of the AC Vent Cover and not by the face of the AC Vent Cover. Below is a quick flyer of what to measure for on an AC Vent Cover.

What is the difference between an AC Vent Cover and a Linear Slot Diffuser?

Vents, Diffusers, Registers, Grilles are all just different words for AC Vents

How to install a Linear Slot Diffuser AC Vent Cover?

The method of installation is through the pre-drilled holes inside of the diffuser. Once the vent is in place, you will fine them by opening the dampers (restricting the air temporarily). We recommend a drill with an extension to install the metal perforating screws that will be included in the vent. You will receive the Linear Slot Diffuser in the OPEN position. The black blades will be touching each other and is in the fully open position. The airflow will go through the sides. When you separate the black blades, you will be restricting the airflow. You can do that manually with your fingers, then you will see the predrill holes and with a drill and an extension, you will screw the 4 metal perforating screws through the sides. To bring it back to an OPEN position, like any other Linear Slot Diffuser you will need a tool, like a flat plastic spatula, knife, anything that is flat and rigid. You will need to insert the tool between the black blade and the white face of the diffuser and pressure it towards back to the center.
