Energy Capture Ventilation Device

Inventor: Curtis Jefferson
The present invention relates to an energy capture ventilation device.
More specifically, the present invention provides a mechanism for capturing energy generated by air being circulated through a structure's HVAC system.

As this air is pushed through the ventilation systems, energy is generated
by the movement of this air. Typically, these air currents are not utilized for the purpose on generating electricity. Households, particularly, may deal with inefficient electricity use. This can result in expensive utility bills. At times, home electricity may run out or may experience a power outage.
A front-facing view of the vent detailing the vent fastener securement mechanisms present on opposite, width-wise ends, along with a mechanism to selectively open and close the vent. The LED lights are shown along the top edge with the wireless network controller installed at the base. The smoke detector is shown at the base, ensuring quick and efficient detection of smoke and/or fire.
A profile view of airflow entering the HVAC system through the connection to the ductwork. The cylindrical and sloped metal ductwork work in conjunction to promote airflow into the system for power generation. A battery is shown installed on the sloped ductwork, storing power generated by the excess airflow.
A top-down view of the ductwork system and its components. The vent is detailed within the cylindrical ductwork while a top-down view of the battery is located along the side of the ductwork.
