Air conditioner vents and returns

12 years ago

Is there any rule of thumb for how many vents you need in a room? I want to be sure to have enough (our house has too few now) but also really hate ceiling vents so I don't want to have too many if we don't need them (we will have ceiling vents in basement and second floor).

Also, is there any rhyme or reason to location? He has started the rough in with me out of town and there are a number that need to be moved (interfere with ceiling lights in closet and bathrooms, etc.) and it looks like he has too many (3 in a 13 x 13 bedroom). Do they need to be in front of the windows? Any other preferred placement? I can't stand air blowing on me so I want to be sure they are not above beds, but any other pointers?
