  • Q:

    What are some differences between a register and a grill?

    A:

    Registers are the vents in a heating, vacuum and air conditioning system that allow air leaving the ducts to enter a room while grilles cover the return vents to the air handler. Registers often have a damper that allows the home occupant to adjust the air flow from the duct while grilles do not. In some homes, the installer places additional grilles in walls or doors to facilitate the return of air to the air handler from closed rooms.
