Can I move this vent?...............


I would like to know if I can move this heat vent down the wall on the right.

I have separated the laundry area with an interior wall and I would like to know if I can move the vent down the wall so that I can have the heat in the main part of the basement.

How would I go about doing that?

What would I need to purchase? Also, is there a vent that would be approx. 3 1/2 inches deep to fit down inbetween the stud.......
also, where would I cut it and what piece of duct work would I need?

Thanks very much......

Yes you can dahling, detach the transition from the round elbow, match the dia of the pipe, extend the run then re attach the transition and grille.
the transition is already 3 1/2 x 10. I can hear you scratching yur pretty head; LOL a transition is the piece that transitions, IE changes from round to rectangular. You can also run 3 1/2 x 10 inside the wall down to where you want the grille the use a rectangular elbow to re attach the grille

Jackie dahling you are fabulous. And yes, I did scratch my head, but then I saw your great explanation.

So that means that I have to cut the long round tube that is there now, near the top plate, and then attach a long rectangular extension all the way down to near the bottom of the wall, (I want to put the new vent closer to the floor, maybe 12 inches from the floor?)and then attach the grill?
That means I have to buy another transition thingy, right.


I don't want to keep it in the ceiling.

Have I got it right? Probably not.

The long round thingy will easily disconnect, ( should be screws in it ), then you just need to extend the round thingy and get another roundthingy that is bent, an elbow, then get a special thingy the is round on one end and recangular on the other ( transition ), then you get rtectangular thingyies and extend that as you said until you get close to the floor and get another special bent thingy, rectangular, elbow and re attach the grille.

I get it! They should call those things thingies, then I will better understand.


Jackie, do I have to cut the top plate in order to put in the elbow thingy in? And then continue to follow you instructions sith rectangular thingys. Also how do I secure the rectangular things to the studs? I don't just leave it there loose, do I?


Thanks Jackie, you are wonderful.

I would avoid cutting the top plate at all costs.I believe you are finishing one side only. They make a rectangular thingy that looks like a wide "U" for gettin under a beam, in this case you use it vertically and can swing under the top plate and into the stud bay, To connect either round or rectangular thingies they slip together the you use short self tapping screws and then they make a sliver tape to seal the joints. NO DUCK TAPE. AND YES that is its original name :}:} NOT duct . As far as running thingies in the stud bay they make strapping that you can screw across the studs and then into the ducting to keep it in place and not rattling all over.

HAPPY BUNNY DAY

Thanks Jackie, and a Happy Bunny Day to you too!

Thank you so much for the explanation, as I was going to start cuting the stud in order to get the rectangular thingy down between the studs.
Thanks for telling me about the large U shape thingy to go around the top plate. Makes my job MUCH easier.

When I'm done, I am going to show you so you can see what a wonderful teacher you are.

Thanks again so very much.
