Vent System Facts to Know

HVAC systems feature return and supply vents. Return vents assist your HVAC system by returning air into your system. This helps the system control the air temperature in your home so it stays at the temperature you have set on your thermostat.


Return Vents

In most homes there is one large return vent located in the main center of the home. In several other instances there is return vent located in each room. Return vents are normally installed at the top of interior walls.  

Return vents function to manage HVAC air flow and pressure in a home. Cold air return vents reduce energy costs because they pull in cool air, which matches the temperature in the home, instead of drawing hot air from outside.

HVAC Register Supply Vents

Supply air vents deliver cool or warm air, depending on the time of year, to the room to make the room the preferred set temperature set on your HVAC’s thermostat. Supply vents are located on walls or on the floor of the room. When supply vents are set up when an HVAC duct work system is being installed in a home, they are installed away from return vents. Setting up the duct work and the supply vents prevents the air originating from the supply vent from being sent right back into the system’s return vent.
