How to Replace a Ceiling Vent Cover

Ceiling vents are where heated or air-conditioned air are pumped into the home. They generally are made of metal and last for years without trouble. However if the vents are opened and closed a lot, they can wear out. If the humidity is high in the area, they can rust. If this has happened, the vents should be replaced with new ones that look good and function properly.

  • Take down the old ceiling vent, using a screwdriver. Generally the screws will require a flathead driver, but check to make sure before you get started. Unscrew the vent by turning the driver counterclockwise. Set the screws aside for later use.

  • Measure the hole in the ceiling as well as the vent cover. Take these dimensions with you to a home improvement store. Select new vents that are the same or larger in dimension. Check the back side of the vent cover to ensure that any interior working will fit the measurements of the hole in the ceiling.
  • Place the vent up to the ceiling and put it over the hole. Use the screws you removed, or new ones if you prefer, to attach it to the ceiling. If it is a bigger vent, you will need to drill into the drywall to create new holes. Once new holes are created, tap drywall anchors into the holes, and place the vent back over top. Drill the screws into the anchors. There is no need to fill the old holes, as they will be covered by the vent.

How to Repair a Plugged Roof Vent

The vent on the roofs of most buildings provides proper air pressure throughout the plumbing system, and allows sewer gases to escape. When plugged, the plumbing fixtures in the building experience problems such as slow flushing and draining, and gurgling. Sewer gases may seep into the building, causing a health hazard. Roof vents may become clogged with leaves or seeds, or from nesting insects or birds. Climb onto the roof to repair the plugged vent.

Shine the flashlight into the ventstack and look for obvious debris. Pull it out by hand, if possible.Insert the plumber’s snake into the stack. Be careful, as some vent systems have elbows and turns in the system.

Turn the snake counterclockwise when you encounter resistance. This loosens the debris.

Pull the snake out of the vent to remove the debris. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the blockage is gone.

Insert the hose about 3 feet down into the stack. Turn on the water supply and allow any debris remaining in the vent to be flushed out of the system.

The Different Types of Vent Covers

Vent covers are made for both register vents and return air vents. There are several different types of vents and therefore several different types of vent covers. Vent covers might be made of wood or metal and are designed to simply cover a vent, giving it a finished look rather than leaving a hole in the wall, floor, or ceiling.

When selecting vent covers for your register vents and return air vents, it is important to pay attention to the types of vents you have. Vent covers for floor registers are made to fit the opening and simply rest in the hole, usually with no means of attachment because gravity holds them in place. On the contrary, a vent cover for a wall or ceiling vent will be designed to permanently attach to the wall or ceiling so it won’t fall out.

Several different styles of vent covers are available for the home, ranging from simple to decorative. Basic vent covers are typically made of metal and come in a variety of finishes, including coated white, brass, almond, and bronze. You should choose the finish that best matches your décor because, though painting metal vent covers is possible, it doesn’t last long. The paint will chip and become unsightly long before the wall or ceiling needs to be repainted.

Wood vent covers are significantly more expensive than metal, but they can be stained or painted to match the interior, and it will last for a long time. There are many hardwood floor, ceiling and wall vent covers at the floor register store, if you need any wood floor, ceiling or wall register, welcome to visit the floor register store, I am sure you’ll be satisified with the sizes and species the floor register store have.

Materials Used to Make a Floor Register or Wall Vent II

Steele is used only after being specially prepared to withstand the temperature variation that is required in the place of the floor register. Although physically durable metal, it is very much effected by natural forces that are abundant for any vent cover and thus requires special preparation. Steel is a good material due to its easily paintable properties as well. So even though it is not as good looking as Brass and not as versatile as aluminum, it is relatively cheaper and is a popular choice for a floor vent built.

Wood is the material for looks and quality. No metal or plastic can give you the cozy feeling of a wood register. Oak, maple, walnut, hickory and cherry are main wood materials used by Ennospace. Some others also include bamboo, beech, and birch. Wood also has an added versatility due to its staining properties. By staining your wooden floor register you can give it absolutely any look you want.

Plastic is the least expensive material of them all. The plastic used for floor register is specially designed to withstand temperature changes and thus is a perfect choice for anyone with a smaller budget. The only drawback of the plastic floor register is its looks. The technology has simply not come this far to mimic real material with plastic well. For any other practical purposes it is a fantastic supplement.

Materials Used to Make a Floor Register or Wall Vent I

The art of building a good floor register comes from physics. Because of the added control and the location, wall and floor registers are subjected to a constant change in air pressure, temperature, and sometimes even physical force. This means that vent cover must be built with care and an accent on quality and longevity.

The materials must be carefully selected for their ability to withstand temperature variations, physical force and be air resistant at the same time. One cannot just take a piece of steel and place it to cover the vent opening. That steel will warp, twist, rust, and eventually fall out of the air duct forcing you to rapidly replace it.

Solid Brass is the sturdiest of them all. It allows for amazing durability and air resistance while keeping the cost of the material relatively low. Brass is also known as a rich looking metal and gives the room that it is in an appearance of quality and high value.

Solid Aluminum is another metal used to make floor registers and cold air returns. It is not as durable as Solid Brass and is not as rich looking but it still does the job. Easily paintable it has the ability to be put almost into any atmosphere and thus possesses a touch of versatility in its use as a vent cover.

Ways to Replace an Existing Ceiling or Wall Register

When you are going to replace an existing ceiling register or wall vent, you might think it is too difficult to do it by yourself, or need some professional assistant. While, in fact, this is something anyone can do themselves.

After the initial size check, make sure that there is sufficient wall or ceiling space at the short ends of the wall register to allow for you to attach it to the wall with screws that are provided with your new register.

Final installation requires a screwdriver to attach the wall register to the wall or ceiling with the screws provided.

Introduction of Grills

Grills are the vents through which air is pulled out of a room for circulation back to the central heating or cooling unit. Grills do not have the damper controls found on floor register.

The following are characters of grills:

1. They have no damper to close off the flow of air.

2. They may be located in floors, ceilings and walls.

3. They provide return air circulation within a room; where unobstructed flow is required for heating/cooling system efficiency.

4. You may have several small grilles located throughout your home or one large central grille installed near the furnace.
