Can I cap a heat vent?
We have a 5x8 bathroom that is too hot even with the one register cover closed. We are in the process of putting up beadboad on the lower 1/3 of the walls. I would like to just seal off this vent and put the beadboard right over top.
How can this be done? The guy at Home Depot said there were things called register caps but that they did not sell them. I have searched the internet and did not find any such product.
This vent/duct in on the top floor and is solid metal at the top of the register cover. So all the air that is forced up just pours out of the vent.
Is this an ok thing to do and what is the best method?
