We are having new hardwood floors installed and would like to have recessed registers put in place. My research indicates that the recessed wood registers don’t allow sufficient airflow. As we would like to make sure our furnace is in fact operating at its best efficiency, we want to install floor registers that allow the maximum airflow possible. You had an article on this subject by Allison A. Bailes III, PhD entitled “Designing Duct System Vents for good Air Flow”. The article had a picture of a recessed vent as an example, but I can’t seem to find it. Attached is a copy of the picture. Any idea where I can find it, or something that would give me the airflow that I’m looking for along with the asthetics of a recessed register?
