Replacing your register vent covers is an easy project that can be completed in a day and doesn’t require any tools. First, determine what size covers you need for your job. Here’s how to measure your existing registers.
Measuring Register Vents For Correct Size
- Flip the existing register cover over and measure the damper box.
- If this is a new home and there is no register cover in place, you can measure the size of the opening.
- Then, go online to www.completehomehardware.com and shop the variety of Decor Grates floor registers to find the style that best suits your home. Under each product listing you will find a range of sizes to fit most standard openings.
Decor Grates register covers come with a damper box which helps regulate air flow, and you can purchase filters to fit the damper box to improve your home’s air quality, too.
Once you have your new register vent covers complete with damper box, remove the old register covers and simply place the new Decor Grates into the opening damper box first.
