Heating Question

I have a heating register/grille , or i think its a heating register, in the bathroom on the tub surround wall. However when the furnace runs all the registers throw heat except this one. Is this register suppose to be for the heat? I have a surveyor sp260 TT just wondering if anyone else has this issue

I think it's a air return vent that sucks air into the furnace. You should not feel air coming from it.

I have a 264 and wondered about this too, so I took the grill off and it is a heating vent but the tube is just sitting there, I made an aluminium box and connecter the tube properly and it warms fine now.

Thanks for the reply DDC, It looks like i'll have to pull off the grill and check to see if there is anything behind there and run the furnace

The air return for the heat would not be in the bathroom. You should have a small heat duct behind the grill. Mine was just laying in the space, so a bit of het came out, but not much. I would guess they do it this way to put a bit og het into the closed plumbing area under the tub/shower. A round full sized vent would dump way too much heat into the small space. Had that problem on my Starcraft Hybrid.

Robmac,

I just realized what you were talking about. That is not anything to do with heat (or AC). that grill is there to allow air to get in under the tub surround so that it can dry out any water that might get back there (and there are several way this can happen). I had mine off because my shower leaks at times and it goes under the surround.

So, not a heating vent or return. FYI- You should have 1 vent in the bathroom. The return should be in the kitchen across from your furnace. Mine is right under the fridge.

Tim

That is why responded specifically to the OP. We both have sports. I have no idea on the other models.
