To install an air conditioning vent cover you need a tape measure, a screwdriver, a vacuum cleaner, vent covers and plastic anchors. A hand driller may also be required to drill larger holes if you are using bigger screws.

While taking the measurements, measure the inside of the vent opening and the cover to get a tight fit with the new cover. If the existing screw holes are too big, insert plastic anchors into the holes. Avoid using large screws to secure the vent. Bigger holes may have to be drilled in the vent to accommodate larger screws. Measure each vent before installing covers, as they may be of different sizes.

An adjustable air conditioning vent cover allows for easy adjustment of the air flow, without having to tweak the thermostat. Adjustable vent covers are recommended in offices, as it allows each person to adjust the temperature in his own workspace.
