DO: Follow the Photo Below to Measure Your Duct Opening Correctly
Rounding numbers is our friend and it should be yours too. Our vents, like some shoes do not come in half sizes (or any other non-round number for that matter). As indicated in the above photo - key to success coming up... we round down on measurements that are ".5" or lower and round up on measurements that are above ".5".
- if your duct measures 3.5" you round to 3".
- if your duct measures 3.75" you round to 4".
DON'T: Take Your Old Vent Out & Measure It
This will lead to major measurement inaccuracies! A big no-no when looking to acquire non-traditional, badass vents - missing from the photo above.. I mean WHAT ARE THOSE?!.
DON'T: Leave Your Old Vent In & Measure It
Once again this will lead to measurement inaccuracies. Since the base/body of a vent is what fits into the duct opening, measuring the outside of an old vent will not lead to accurate measurements. Also, an Aria Vent does not have the same size or shape of traditional grilled vents like the photo above.
DO: Remove Your Old Vent & Measure Your Duct Opening
By doing this you will be one step closer to finding the vent you've always dreamed of! Without a vent in place, you gain access to the barebones of your duct opening - this is what your vent will fit into. Think of it as if your duct opening is a skeleton and the vent is the skin that covers it.
Find an Aria Vent that fits today. Live your dreams tomorrow.
