Customer Questions & Answers

how is this mounted to the air conditioner? Clips? Magnets? Screws?

Asked by: Jen
Double sided tape that is already attached ti the deflector. Just peel & stick.

Can I use it to deflect air from someone sitting next to it?

i.e. mounting backwards at base of vent instead of at top of vent
Asked by: KenJ
Can be used both ways in my experience. I have a friend in an assisted living facility where the PTAC's have fixed louvers blowing straight out. Used them to deflect the air up waya from her bed, and couch.

Does the deflector direct the air back and upward toward the curtains or away from the curtains toward the front of the air conditioner?

It is simply an l-shaped piece of plastic with some glue on one edge, I can't believe they charge $26 for this. It didn't even fit on to my air conditioner, I had to use duct tape to hold it on. I definitely would not buy it again, I would figure out some alternative.

My Dad is disabled and has one of those HVAC units blowing right on him in bed which he cannot stand, (neither can I), and so I ordered this deflector and put it on in front of the louvers. Problem solved! Highly recommended no matter how you're using it.

The PTAC's there have fixed louvers that blow straight out. Used these to deflect the air up instead of down to prevent it blowing on a friends couch, and bed. The work great, and seem to adhere very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Problem Solver! This was purchased for my dad who lives in a retirement center in an efficiency apartment. The ac unit was located at the head of his bed and blew right on his head. The louvers in the vent were not changeable. I found this deflector to eliminate that issue. I believe I installed it the opposite way it was intended, but this was to alleviate a problem. What a success! No more air blowing on his head and the entire apartment is noticeably cooler. He's been able to set the thermostat 5 degrees over the previous setting and have cooler quarters. The installation consisted of peeling the backing off the adhesive strip and attaching to the ac unit. It seems very sturdy. The reason for my average rating on features and quality - it is just a piece of plastic but does the job quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick! It directs the air out instead of up and it's practically invisible. All you do is remove the tape seal and press it on or near the air conditioner venting and you're good to go..
