heating register size


I have a 10' bay window that has 2 four foot heat registers under it. I am redoing my floors and am going to buy new registers. I went to menards today to look at them and the longest register they have is 2' long. Is it better to have registers the length of the window? Also under my other windows are 4' long registers and the windows are about 3' wide. Can I replace these with the 2' long registers or is there a need for the 4' long ones? Thanks

That depends on what size boot is feeding them.

There is a rectangle vent about 2x12" feeding each register. I was wondering if the reason for the 2 four foot heat registers was so there was heat over the whole window?

If I use 2 two foot registers in front of a 10' long window would it have "cold spots"? Thanks
