Master Bedroom Vent

About the Photo Sequence
It's time to install the ceiling vent in the Master Bedroom. This documents the vent installation.

Photo Details
This photo sequence contains 10 frames. Each landscape frame is a finite 1366 pixels wide but height was left to its own based on the crop. I based the picture size on an email program's display window asuming that the picture would not be automatically resized to fit. This technique kept the file size down, the largest being 884k making it easy to send and receive through email. All photos were taken with a Nikon D810.

Heat Distribution System
Step 5
Master Bedroom Vent

These are the parts that need to be installed. Ducting comes later.

The vent will be installed to the right of the ceiling fan.
With a stud finder and a tape measure, I drilled a tiny
hole and shoved a locater wire through it.

Found it!

For placement between the rafters, there's lots of measuring and marking. Ready to cut the hole.

The hole is cut, with room between the rafters for the register can and it's frame.

Ever unscrew your heater vents? Just to find out that the "professionals" put the screws in drywall only?
It works that way, and usually you never touch them so there's never a problem. But if you remove them
for cleaning or replacement, eventually the screws no longer grip the drywall. That's "professional work".
They should have taken the extra step, as I do, and build a frame around it. With the frame, that screw is
secured in wood and can be removed and replaced for the life of the house. I take those extra steps.
It's my intent to exceed "professional work".

Here's the view from the master bedroom.

Here's the vent cover secured in place.

Clean installation.
The three bedrooms have their vents in place, time for the ducting.
