I am attempting to optimize my vents and am seeking tips. I have some unused rooms, but when I flip the little lever on the vent grate on the ceiling, it still allows quite a bit of air through.
My solution was to cut out a cardboard panel the exact size of the vent behind the grate and obstruct the vent using the cardboard. However, my plan worked a little too well as now zero air is coming through the vent.
Should I be concerned with blocking off one of my vents so completely? Will I cause damage to my central furnace? Will there be any fire danger when I turn on the heat in the wintertime? :eek:
It seems my remaining vents are getting a lot more airflow, but that ended up making those vents noisier. The wind is practically whistling through my bedroom vent now. Eh, more adjusting needed, I guess.
