Moving our HVAC Vent + Dremel Saw Giveaway

Today I wanted to share the brief tale of how we moved our HVAC vent in the guest room with the help of the Dremel US40 Ultra Saw and offer one up for you to win today!  We don’t advocate doing major changes to your home’s HVAC system without professional help, but in this situation we found moving the vent a few feet wasn’t too difficult and a project we could tackle on our own.

I didn’t want the vent directly under the fan, I wanted it three feet closer to the closet wall and away from the fixture for aesthetic reasons so we moved it ourselves.
