Why are air conditioning vents installed in high locations?

Placing your air conditioning vents high keeps that cool air circulating throughout the room. In this setup, the air is pulled back into the system by way of a large return air vent placed low on a central wall in the home.

Should HVAC vents point up or down?

Aim it upwards. In homes with central AC, vents are typically on the floor pointing upward for the reason you mentioned. You want to displace the hot air up top and hopefully get a current flowing. Blowing to the floor will not give much incentive for upper air to flow.

Where should AC vents be placed?

Supply register vents should be in every room as well. Located on the outer walls, under windows, in the ceiling, or on the floor, placement depends on the heating or cooling system as well as the construction of the home. Supply vents help change the room temperature to your desired heat or cool setting.

Do return air vents face up or down?

There is no proper direction for the vanes to point. If they’re high sidewall, normally they would be pointed upward which makes them vision proof and just the opposite for low sidewall. Frankly the more open you can leave them the better for system operation. The last thing you would want is to restrict is return air.

Should you put filters in your return vents?

Do not put filters in your supply vents. Your AC system should have a proper fitting filter on the return side. By placing a good fitting, high quality filter on the return vent, you will remove particles from the air before they can enter the AC system.

What does an evaporator do on a Freightliner truck?

What are the most common problems with Freightliner Trucks?
