Duct & cold air return?

and the reason for that is that a well designed system will mix the air in the room(s) for the various seasons. be sure your designer uses manual j and manual d for the design of your new homes hvac. If it was me I would do a lot of homework on ducts (types, sealing, fittings etc) to make sure your system is designed and installed well.
