I recently moved into an older 1919 home. I was just wondering if it was possible to replace these original hvac vents with something that will diffuse the air more effectively without creating a new hole in the wall. Thanks!

HVAC vents: Diffusers

In the world of HVAC engineering and design, there are a myriad of materials, pieces and parts. In order to have a firm understanding of how HVAC systems work, it is vital to have a firm grasp on the individual parts that make a system whole.

While many HVAC designs contain a collection of these pieces, not all systems contain all the different pieces every time. Some parts are more appropriate for certain designs. One such part is the diffuser, which helps “diffuse” the air through your room. The diffuser is a part that serves a vital function but also has decorative appeal since it’s the part that facing the room. There are many types and shapes of diffuser that lend themselves to different applications.
