So You’ve Turned Off the Gas Ducted Heating - Forever!

Congratulations!  That’s a great leap forward for sustainability and lower energy bills.  But now you need to think about how to decommission those unused floor heating vents, so they don’t become draughty, smelly or rodent super highways!

If simply left, unused floor heating vents will become massive draught issues when the ducting is compromised.  Removal of the old gas furnace, underfloor activity by trades people or simply vermin activity will cause uncontrolled air flow to enter the ductwork and come out of the old floor heating vents into your home.  

You could remove the heating outlets and repair the floor but is expensive and there is the  vexed question of how to match those beautiful timber floorboards. The other alternative is to lay carpet - so expensive!

The simple, low cost and effective way is to use “Goodbye Heating Vents” to provide your home with safety, comfort and lower energy bills.

 

Description:

ecoMaster’s Goodbye Heating Vents is your best friend for sealing and draught proofing unused floor heating outlets. Each kit contains enough material to decommission 4 floor heating vents.  The kit contains everything you need to rodent proof and draught proof floor heating outlets once and for all, regardless of what happens to the unused underfloor ducting.  The choice of Large or Medium kits allows you to select exactly the right size to seal your heating vents.

 

Components:

Polyester Insulation - Cut into neat easy to use squares, the long heat bonded fibres are a rodents nightmare.  They simply do not like tangling with the fibres. This is the first line of defense in decommissioning your floor heating outlets.  As well as being an anti-rodent material, it naturally serves the function of insulating.

Foilfaced Insulation Board - This foil faced polystyrene insulation board is used to draught seal the heating “boot” under the register.  It is cut so that it squeezes in tightly to make an impenetrable barrier immediately under the floor outlet register.

Fullers UltraClear - This water-based gap sealant that is white when applied and clear when dry is a snap to use. It is used to seal around the perimeter of the Foilfaced Insulation Board and also to seal the gaps along the sides of the boot to the floor.   Cleanup using a damp cloth. Too easy!

 

Inclusions:

Medium Kit:  One (1) 300g tube of Fullers UltraClear, 4 squares of polyester insulation, 4 sections of Foilfaced Insulation Board sized at 110mm x 305mm.

Large Kit:  One (1) 300g tube of Fullers UltraClear, 8 squares of polyester insulation, 4 sections of Foilfaced Insulation Board sized at 155mm x 355mm.

Remember to get an extra kit to treat the Return Air inlet.

 

Features:

✔ Avoid unsightly mis-matched repairs to timber floor boards, or having to recarpet the whole home

✔ Helps prevent the entry of rodents

✔ Eliminates draughts from decommissioned heating vents

✔ Ensures you don’t get any nasty surprises from your old ducting



Suitable For:

  • Homeowners who want to retrofit their house for thermal efficiency
  • First-time homeowners
    Families preparing for the arrival of a new addition
  • People preparing their homes for retirement
  • Anyone with a thermo-sensitive health condition, AND 
    Everyone who is sick of huge energy bills and poor comfort levels!
