Two Air Vents in Bedroom

June 20, 2011

Q. Suzie Asked - I have 2 air vents in my bedrooms upstairs. Should the larger ones have filters?

A. Suzie. The extra vents are there to equalize the air pressure between the rooms. They are usually closer to the doors and the regular A/C vents are closer to the windows. They are called Jumper Ducts and they do not require any filters. They would only be on the 2nd floor and only in the bedrooms. They are just for air flow, no need to do anything.
