These automatic vent openers are heat activated and they require no electricity to operate. Proper air circulation and ventilation is imperative to grow high quality produce year-round. A bent, broken, or worn out vent opener can invite pests and disease; always check to ensure that your vents are opening and closing properly. Often, a malfunctioning opener can be brought back to life by replacing the pistons. We can help you diagnose the cause of failure if your vents are not opening.
