Kickstarter - LINQ Home Launches Energy-saving Smart Vent Crowdfunding Campaign

Energy Saving Home Automation - Perfect Comfort in Every Room, Every Day

Salt Lake City - Utah February 24, 2015


LINQ Home, a maker of energy-saving home automation products, today announced the launch of a Kickstarter Campaign to improve Heating and Cooling through smart vents.

LINQ is providing households with unprecedented control over HVAC systems. By sensing the temperature in each room and adjusting dampers on every vent, LINQ's system enables room-by-room temperature control. The system routes air to the rooms that need it, and not to those that don't. Air flow data processed through algorithms, opens and closes the vents and prevents strain on the furnace or AC unit. Rooms reach their set points faster, run times of HVAC equipment are reduced, and the increased efficiency translates to money savings and consistent comfort.

"I couldn't believe the temperature variances between the rooms in my home," said Jason Griggs, founder and CTO of LINQ Home. "When I first started testing our Smart Vent system there was a 12 degree difference between rooms. The variance resulted in seemingly endless thermostat wars."

LINQ Smart Vents have all the perks of a zoning system, at less than half the price, and with none of the inconvenience of construction. The simple-to-install, retrofittable system saves users up to 50% on monthly heating and cooling costs.

"This technology is such a no-brainer," said Doug Wells, a homeowner and LINQ Home Beta tester, "every room in my home is the temperature I want it to be at. I don't waste any time fiddling with vents or worrying about my thermostat."

LINQ Home has 40 days to reach the Kickstarter funding goal of $30,000. The smart vent systems run from $299 to $1,900. Every system includes smart vents and a brain. The brain communicates with the vents, the internet, and most open API smart thermostats. With the funds raised, LINQ will begin commercial production of their patent pending smart vents.
