Air Heater Vent Scoop

Do these things really work? I can get one for about $25 but, why spend it on one of those if they don"t really do anything. I live in PA and if that will help the heater then, ok I would buy one. What do you guys think?

Waste of money! Will fill up with snow in the winter, and leaves in the fall. Jeep heaters need no assist.

If just for HVAC not worth it. If you do cowl intake for engine, maybe something to consider, although note with TJs they are supposedly more efficient with the opening facing the windshield.

I've got Mac's cold air cowl intake and it is setup this way. Doesn't change the HVAC system except for more filtration.

Then it will not help. If your temp is not that hot, you may have a partially clogged heater core. TJ's have great heaters. Sometimes I can smell my sneakers burning from the intense heat that come out.

either bad thermostat, clogged heater core or you got something else wrong.

a hard top helps keep the heat in, but TJ heaters will burn you out once the engine is warmed up, doesn't matter if it's -20F out.
