What is an A-C DraftShield?

A-C DraftShields were specially designed to help homeowners winterize their homes by blocking drafts from open central air conditioner vents. These vents can blow cold drafts and allow warm air to escape, causing a rise in your energy bills.

There are several variations of the A-C DraftShield:

  • Home Winterization A-C DraftShield - During colder months, homeowners with uncovered central air conditioning vents can spend more than $200 in unnecessary heating costs.  By using A-C DraftShields central AC vent covers, you can prevent heat loss, conserve energy, and save money. These vent covers will significantly reduce your heating costs by preventing icy drafts from entering the home through open vents. Closing the louvers on vent grilles will not stop airflow and heat loss because it does not offer a full seal, but A-C DraftShields can provide the protect you need to prevent airflow leaks.

  • Energy audit A-C DraftShield – This type of cover is used as a temporary vent cover for energy audit professionals performing home energy audits.

  • Through-the-wall A-C DraftShields – These specially designed vent covers fit on wall-mounted air conditioners. They can be mounted on walls or ceilings in seconds without any complicated tools.

A-C DraftShields will give you the proper seal you are looking for, and are conveniently available for all standard sized central air conditioning vents.
