Most people would agree that keeping a window open in winter is not a good idea. However, homes with uncovered fans for the whole home essentially do just that – which increases energy consumption and costs for the homeowner. Now Shuttercover ™ Trim to Fit, a custom-fit roof fan cover, offers homeowners a simple and affordable way to cover their fans and reduce energy costs.
“While fans for the whole house use much less energy than air conditioning systems, the systems offer little or no insulation value. In winter, when you heat the house, they let hot air out and cold air in. In the summer, when the air conditioning is on, they let hot air in and cold air out, ”says Rick Hedgpeth of RH Manufacturing, the largest manufacturer of insulation for whole-house fans in the US. “Homeowners can save a huge amount of energy and money by covering and insulating the opening. Our shutter cover Trim to Fit makes it easy to do just that without ever having to go into the attic. “
Shuttercover Trim to Fit covers are made from ¼ inch thick, reflective, low-e film insulation. This type of insulation can stop up to 97% of radiant heat transfer, resulting in significant energy savings. One side has a white coating that blends into the surrounding ceiling. The square can be cut to fit any fastener size up to 48 “by 48”.
The shutter cover Trim to Fit is attached to the ceiling with a self-adhesive Velcro fastener. This means that no more tape, plastic or stumbling blocks get into the attic. Just glue the cover to the ceiling. Remove the cover to use the fan, and then replace it when you’re done.
Shuttercover Trim to Fit not only prevents air from getting in, but it also cuts bills by reducing hot and cold spots where the stove or air conditioning may turn on unnecessarily. Most of the house’s fan shutters are in hallways near thermostats. Air flowing in through the uninsulated shutters creates a hot or cold spot that the thermostat detects, which turns on the stove or air conditioner when it may not be needed. Shuttercover Trim to Fit can prevent this.
“Shuttercover Trim to Fit is a wonderful product. I installed one … just before it got cold, ”said a happy customer in Jefferson City, Missouri.
