Installing Registers in finished basement


Hello.

I'm new here and need some help. I received some quotes on installing a new register in my basement and it was super expensive. So, i've decided to do it myself.

1. Where's best spot to place the register? Floor? Ceiling? Wall?

If it's ok to place on the wall, I could get some duct and place the register 4 ft from my furnace.

It looks as if there is an old patch directly from my furnace that is now sealed with a metal sheet. Can I take that old metal sheet off and attach the cicular duct work tubing and mount that to the wall (with the proper wall mount register material of course)?

I just need some help, I've never done it before. Any good sites that show you how to do this? Anywhere on this site that will show you how to do it.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Boinger!

Installing Registers in finished basement


Heat rises, so the lowest point is best for registers. If you open the closed off panel on your furnace and duct off of that you may take to much of the heat from the rest of the house. You would have to install some kind of a damper where you can regulate how much comes out that duct. Also finding out why that was blocked off to begin with is a good idea. It may not even be part of the heat duct but an access door for service.
