How to Deal with a Badly Placed Heat Vent?

Saw this hack on Pinterest and I loved it. I’ve seen this so many times – a bedroom where the only good place to place a bed is over the only heating vent to the room. What to do? Well it looks like it’s time to go to home depot and come up with a “bush” fix.


Buy a steel 90 Degree Register Duct Boot, some dryer vent ducting plus a vent cap (there are different styles). Get some aluminum tape to put it all together and voila, you got a heat vent coming from the edge of the bed!

Personally, I’d probably also secure the vent cap to the edge of the bed with some screws to keep it in place.
