Ductwork-Floor-RegisterThe supply registers play an essential role in providing conditioned air throughout your home. They deliver this air through the branches that come from the main trunk line of the duct work. Each room has its own register and the air is pushed out where the system picks up inside air and delivers it to the air handler of your central system.
