Each Easy Air vent shows 3 wind zone settings on the metallic label (low, medium and high).
In most situations, you can leave the vent in the fully open position.
However, if you will be absent for some time, you can adjust the vent settings to suit the wind zone of your particular location:
- In a low wind location, leave the slide fully open
- In a high wind location, leave the slide half open
Recommended settings in Winter
Generally, you can leave the vents in the fully open position at all times.
Heat loss through the vents is minimal, although you will always lose a little when exchanging damp stale air for fresh dry air.
If you want to heat a room quickly, you can temporarily close the vents. You may also want to partially close the vents in very windy conditions.
Look at your window glass to get an idea of how much ventilation is needed. When misting on the window first occurs, increase ventilation while maintaining internal temperatures, preferably to a minimum of 18C.
Cleaning Easy Air Vents
You should wash your vents once every six months with warm soapy water and a soft bristled brush. This will prevent grime becoming engrained into the surface.
The insect barrier is positioned to minimise build-up of dust. However, it can attract spiders which can cause a build up of web. Remove spider webs regularly with a high powered vacuum cleaner. Never allow spider webs to build up to excess.
For powder-coated vents, never use petrol-based solvents (such as mineral turpentine).
For anodised vents, never used alkaline based cleaners (such as common household bleach).
Never use abrasive cleaners on either type of vent.
