Air deflectors help direct the air flow from a vent in your home. These deflectors are designed to connect magnetically to metal floor, ceiling and wall registers and help warm or cool air more effectively through a room. Some even come with dust filters or can help direct airflow from a register positioned beneath a piece of furniture.
Another accessory used to help regulate room temperature or increase energy efficiency is air vent covers. Vent covers completely cover an air register to redirect forced air to other areas. They also help you seal off locations that don’t require temperature control, like the attic.
You can purchase these register covers in various sizes, but some sheets can also be cut to size. Many magnetic vent covers can be painted or wallpapered to better fit the style of the room.
