Choosing Heat Registers

A heat register is a vent cover that has a damper. The damper may be a set of louvers that operate as a system or a single large damper (such as with a vintage baseboard register). Heat registers are normally used on supply side vents as opposed to air returns. The damper allows the heat register to be adjusted to control air flow. The register can be closed to prevent heating and cooling rooms that aren't in use or adjusted to balance temperature so rooms further from the thermostat maintain a temperature consistent with rooms that are near the thermostat.

The term "heat register" is a legacy from the days when homes had central heating but no air conditioning. Air conditioning didn't arrive in residential construction until decades after central heating. Naturally registers were only associated with heating and, therefore, called "heat registers". Although both warm air (winter) and cold air (summer) pass through a register today, they are still called "heat registers" by many people.

Size is the most important criteria for selecting heat registers. It also tends to be the most overlooked. Although overall dimensions can be important if the register is flush mounted or near a corner or other obstruction, heat registers are generally sized by the opening that they fit, not their overall dimensions. The louver assembly on the back of heat registers must drop into the duct opening so it is necessary to check the size of the opening to be covered. Wall registers and ceiling registers have screws to secure them in place while floor registers often drop into place without screws. In addition to the common sizes, many of our heat registers are also offered in hard-to-find sizes to solve the difficult vent cover installation problems typical of old homes.

Shop 4 Classics' heat registers feature decorative grilles in a wide assortment of vintage patterns as well as a few modern designs. Many designs are versatile enough to fit in any style home. The architectural style of your home will provide a template for choosing heat register designs but selection of a pattern is largely a matter of personal preference. Depending on their construction, most patterns are available in a choice of finishes or colors.
