Why would they put a heat vent near the ceiling?


My father has been an Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C tech as well as then an Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C corporation owner for almost thirty years.

  • When I wanted to buy a house, he came with my fiance as well as I to look at it.

He wanted to make sure our Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C method was in great shape. He was also licensed to do apartment inspections, as well as I wouldn’t have to pay him. When all of us went to look at 1 home, I was a bit confused. I wanted to recognize where the air vents were? The homeowner laughed as well as pointed to an air vent near the ceiling. I told his that would be for the a/c, but what about the air vent for the heating system? She told myself and others the air vent was for both heating as well as A/C. I really thought he was kidding. I couldn’t for the life of myself and others guess why anyone would want their heat vent near the ceiling. Don’t they realize that heat rises. She told myself and others he didn’t install them, he just owned the house. When my Mom came inside, he just shook his head. He told myself and others I didn’t want this house. He said it was going to be difficult to heat the downstairs as well as the attic as well as upstairs would consistently be too cool. During the summer, it would cool, but Winter time was going to be a disaster. The owner asked him how he knew he was having those troubles. He told his that since heat rises, you need to have the air vents closer to the floor. Those air vents up near the ceiling should never be used for both heating as well as A/C.
