Thanks to Zach V. for his Suggest-A-Post submission yesterday!
Zach commented that all new houses in the (Boise) area have some sort of air return vent in the bedrooms, often placed over the bedroom doors, and questioned the appearance of those vents.
Here’s why you see those return air vents, Zach.
Most newer homes in the Boise area have forced-air HVAC systems that require the air to be returned to the source of its heating/cooling in order to heat/cool the air and recirculate it throughout the home.
Since heated air rises, the return air vents are commonly placed near the ceiling of the room.
Lacking those return air vents, modern HVAC systems would be incapable of heating/cooling the home.
