Cold air return covers are an essential item for anyone that has a shop. These are extremely versatile and can be used for just about anything. When you have a cold draught coming in they can be used to trap the cold air and prevent it from getting into your building and causing damage. They can also be used on caravans and other covered vehicles to keep them warm. The fact they are so versatile is one of the main reasons why they are so popular with DIY shops, home owners and garden centres.
There are many different types of cold air return covers. Some of the more popular ones include the foam padded covers, self-sticking ones, self-adhesive ones, foam bumpers and dual layer ones. They come in a range of different materials too including plastic and polystyrene. The type you choose will depend on the environment where you live and the type of business that you run.
A foam padded or self-sticking cold air cushion cover is designed specifically to stop cold air coming into your building. They are designed to be very effective at absorbing heat energy, this stops the warm air from penetrating your walls and floors and entering your building. They also provide a very effective level of insulation, which helps to keep the temperature warm inside in the winter and cooler in the summer.
A self-sticking cold air cushion cover is used to stop the warm air from entering your building. This can be useful if your air conditioning system isn’t working properly. The air can be trapped between the foam cover and the ceiling. They come in various sizes to fit most standard sized air conditioners. The self-sticking ones do not need adhesives and will usually stick to the ceiling easily.
Cold air return covers are often used in conjunction with a foam rubberized cover. The rubber acts as a barrier to prevent heat energy escaping from the interior of the building. You may need to install special drain tiles around your pipes to make sure all cold air returns to the outside of the building. Most rubberized covers will not allow heat energy to pass through so this is a good way of keeping heating and cooling costs down.
When choosing cold air cushions, it is always best to find out whether they are designed to protect against heat energy loss. This will ensure that they are a good investment and will last for many years. In general the more expensive models will have more advanced features such as the ability to stop the foam rubber from sticking to ceilings and walls. These types of cushions can be quite noisy when moving so it’s worth spending a bit more on quality.
