How Does an AC Floor Vent Cover Work?
Floor registers direct the airflow as you heat or cool your home, according to the angles you set. You can always change the floor register to add a different style to your home's décor or adjust the direction of the airflow if you desire. Make sure it’s the right fit so it can optimize the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. Heat loss can be minimized and the energy load required of the system reduced by using the most efficient registers and installation strategies. Registers located near exterior walls contribute very well to proper airflow. You want to avoid placing furniture too close to the register. This will hamper the productivity of your system.
- Remove your old wood or metal floor register cover by using your screwdriver. Most floor registers are set in place and not screwed down. However over time dirt and debris can become wedged in between the duct and the floor vent making it hard to remove. If this is the case using the leverage of a screwdriver is a common way to pry the vent cover up, but be careful, wooden floors can scratch easily, and vent covers have known to bend and kink.
- Take a measurement of the size of the vent.
- Purchase new floor registers to match the size of the opening. We advise you not leave the vent uncovered for safety reasons.
- When the new floor register arrives, remove the old one and simply screw the new register in the floor. If you have carpet, the fit is so snug you often do not need to fasten the register.
