A simple vent for equalizing the temperature between two rooms without allowing people to walk between them.

A vent conducts some of the temperature from one room to another room. The vent can be opened or closed. It structurally acts like a wall, and it supports a roof. While usually placed between two rooms, the vent can function as a weak exterior wall if desired (for example temporarily while the second room is being built), creating a useable indoors environment in the first room. Placement of a vent requires open space on its two sides (no solid structures such as walls). The blueprint can be laid atop an existing wall; the wall is replaced upon construction. The placement of multiple vents along a wall increases the temperate transference. Requires the Complex Furniture research to build.
Gases can travel through vents.
A vent cannot be uninstalled, only deconstructed, at the usual loss of half the material.
