Changes in your heating and cooling systems, or a realization that someone forgot to put an air return in an important area can lead to the light bulb going off that you can put a vent in your door or replace the door with a louvered door which is specifically designed for heating and cooling systems. If you want to have a stainable or paintable wood vent in your existing door or cabinet we can make most any size to fit your situation. Typically, we’ll use the louvered style to create more privacy behind the door. If you need maximum privacy, we can create a chevron effect with louvered vents back to back or on either side of the door (outside and inside) so that you cannot see into the other side even if you put your eyes right up to the spaces.
Many architects, builders and HVAC companies also like the grate style or laser designs for this purpose. With the grate style we usually go with the small grid size. Architects, Builders, as well as HVAC companies, like the small grid size as it looks better with more and smaller little squares and it also allows more air flow as well. Most Louvered Doors by most other manufacturers do not allow the proper air flow for heating or cooling systems. We can design HVAC door vents for most systems. Door companies like us to make these in many ways, already installed doors are usually designed a little differently or if you are replacing a commercial door vent that someone kicked out, we can usually design it to replace the old one.
With vents on either side, we can also provide filter or soundproofing material to sandwich in between to better increase privacy. We can stain, finish or prime paint your wooden door vents, as well. We carry all Minwax® oil-based stains. Our prime painting (in white or black) includes two coats on the front side and one coat on the back side to seal and protect your door from humidity and temperature changes.
