How To Save Money On Heating Vents

Let’s face it, your heating vents are white, boring, and probably really dirty.  So you start shopping around for new vents and you realize that they really don’t cost that much.  You find really cool ones for $20, some that would look great in your bedroom for $15, and perfect wooden ones for the kitchen that cost $25.  Then you stop for second, take a walk around your house, and realize that you have over 20 heating vents in your house!  That’s going to cost a lot to replace all of those!

Let me show you how to save some money on all of this!

The first step to saving money is to figure out whether or not you really need to replace every heating vent in the house.  Do your kids need a designer heat vent in their bedrooms?  Probably not, so you can save one or two for each of those rooms.  Take a hard look at the bathrooms, office, and other lesser used rooms in the house to figure out whether or not you should swap them out.

Another good idea is to shop for heat vents online.  The prices there are way lower than your local home decor store, and they have a ton more choices.  In order to save as much as possible online you have to get a shipping deal.  Paying full price for shipping will erase most of the saving that you’re going to get online because shipping a dozen or so floor registers is heavy!  There are a few dozen different retailers online that specialize in these, so if you shop around you are bound to find free shipping on at least one of them.

Upgrading the heating vents in your house doesn’t have to cost a fortune.  Be smart, buy only what you need and shop around for them.  Patience and persistence is going to get you a good deal!
