How do I block up the vent blocks for air-conditioning purpose

Rick :

Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue

Rick :

Is this more or less permanent?

Customer:

Hi Rick,

Customer:

Hi Rick, I have recently air-conditioned my bed-room here in Trinidad, West Indies. I have two rows of vent block about 64'' by 5''.

Rick :

Ok, so you want to close up the vents and you cut a board to do this but it's not a tight fit? and you want this to be permanent?

Customer:

Not permanent. Permanent would mean plastering it with cement. I would prefer something temporary so that I could remove it if I wish.

Rick :

Then you're best bet would be to fill the gaps with foam ("rubber") gasket material/weather stripping. There are many options at any hardware store around here. I'm not sure what's available where you are

Customer:

Thank you. I will check the local hardware here and see what they come up with. By he way I have a Rick in my name. Der-rick

Rick :

You're welcome! all the best people have a rick in their name

Customer:

I know (Smile) Take care.

Rick :

You too

Customer:

I need to rate you

Rick :
