And the programmers can be removed so you can really control the settings in a room if you want!

In my opinion, heating cost is major concern of A/C system for single house. This is the one to save your money. We bought four for each room including living room where we don't use in bed time; however, one drawback is you can't use Low self-discharge NiMH battery such as Sanyo's eneloop, because of insufficient voltage. You must use regular battery on it.

These vents are so worth the price. They are easy to set up and easy to open/close if you change your mind on the timed settings (so if you are home sick, for example, and you have the vent closed in your room Monday through Friday between working hours, you can override the setting and open it up). Great product. Looks nice, too. Not cheap. And the programmers can be removed so you can really control the settings in a room if you want!

I don't have one of these but believe it's a great idea and wanted to expand on the whole concept. First, as far as I've seen there's this one and the Activent; both do the same thing with the exception of the Activent having a remote control. However, it’s much more expensive at $60 per vent and depending on how many vents you have in your home, your heating/cooling costs would actually increase until the savings catches up with the initial cost. Obviously I'm talking about return on investment; and with the 30 vents I have in my home I’d have to measure savings after my initial cost of $1,800 (+shipping) was recouped. This is why I believe the Vent-Miser is the better deal. But let me add that although the remote control, as with anything that operates via remote, is the more convenient way to handle heating/cooling in your home, they should step it up to an even more convenient feature. This brings me to the whole point. This looks like it's a relatively new idea which means it will quite possibly evolve into what we'd all ideally like to see; which are vents that can be controlled through your smartphone. I already have Wi-Fi thermostats in my home as well as my garage door opener - which also sends me e-mail alerts whenever the door opens or closes. So if we're gonna take baby steps, I suggest the Vent-Miser since it's the less expensive solution. My prediction is Activent will probably do it first since it seems like someone had an idea, got some investors and produced a product that will naturally evolve. Vent-Miser just looks like a product someone “made” and is selling – which I don’t mean to suggest is an inferior product. I just get this impression since I can’t seem to find a home page for them. In a world where your local gas station has a website, why don't they?Read more ›

Vent-Miser 91668 is a great product!!! I sleep in the very cold and our daughters room was getting way too cold for her as she's small and still in a crib with just jammies and a sleeper. The Vent-Miser 91668 will literally keep her room cool all day, as the sun warms up the room it gets hot, but cools down by 8pm. At 8pm it closes automatically and her room will stay at 70degrees all night. It's perfect! I would be this again and again and the batteries have yet to die since installed on March 2014.

Heating vents are frequently shortcut of cold draft when the heater is off. After sunset, our otherwise well insulated bedroom gets cold quickly, and a no-contact thermometer identifies the vents as the culprit. Since the vents are on the ceiling, one of which right above the bed, I looked hard for a "smart" vent that would close when the heater is off. There're expensive solutions around, but this is the best in terms of price/performance.

Installation tips: it's really quite simple to install if it's the right size. There are two screws that hold the vent if mounted on the ceiling. The old vents we had have screws in shorter distance. I could only reuse one existing hole and had to drill the other. Since it's close to the old hole, depending on the material you drill in, it may not as secure as the reusable hole. It's better to anchor the control module side to the existing hole, as you would need to pull the module down to replace batteries or re-program. It's also a good idea to get thin window/door seal and stick patches around the perimeter to prevent draft from the edge. If the seal is too thick, the unit would stick out with only two screws in the middle.

Wishlist:
1. A remote control to override in case one needs to turn on the heater temporarily, or better yet, to reprogram remotely.
1.5. At least provide a button on the control module to temporarily open and close
2. Pre-install seal on the unit to improve insulation
3. Better air tightness when shut

I purchased three of these vents for the kids rooms and one for the restroom so I could close their vents while they are at school. In theory I would be closing there doors and in return be heating less square footage while they are at school. While it is to early to determine if I am saving any money I know that the wife and I are now more confortable due to the heat distribution and also notice that the heater is not kicking on as often as when I have all vents opened. Over all a good purchase.

The holes were a 1/4 inch long on each side so I used the old vent for a template and drilled new holes and it fits perfectly. Installation took a little longer and I am buying three more along with a WIFI thermostat because I am sick and tired of my home energy costs which seem to be growing each and every year.
