Heat & AC supply register for a basement ceiling

Posted by hippityhoppy (My Page) on

I'm finishing a basement 15'x15' room. Its' supply register was in the main supply duct, the plenum. I will close that off and put in a 6" round duct 8' to the exterior wall, over a window.

What type of supply register is used? The ceiling will be drywall.

I'll be adding a return register at the floor in an interior wall, about mid-room.

Thank you.

To fill out my inquiry, how is the duct pipe connected to the register? Is there some sort of box to which the duct pipe is connected and provides for the supply register to be attached to its' bottom?

Should the supply air vents blow air down the wall or across, i.e. parallel, to the ceiling? There are diverse vent patterns available, for example at the Pex Supply site link provided below.

Here is a link showing an example of how to connect a 6 inch duct to a register. There are variations of these so you can get best fits your application.

I suggest getting a register that you can close. In the summer you may want to close it off so the basement does not get too cold when the AC is running.
