All depends on the air flow in the room from AC and heater. I took a
kitchen hood and then some aluminum sheet about 24-28 gauge and
attached it to theoutside of the hood on 3 sides. It works very
well. To test it I took a paper towel and set it on fire to see how
the smoke moved within the space orout side.
