Kitchen relocation, are HVAC registers needed
We're currently renovating a 13+ year old home, and we've decided that the kitchen should be in a different spot on the main floor. We will be swapping the location of the kitchen and the family room which are approximately the same size rooms. The current kitchen (future family room) does not have any HVAC registers or ducting. The current family room (future kitchen) has two floor registers that are not ideally located for our new kitchen (one would end up under the sink, and the other under the oven...). The home's thermostat is located approximately half way down the hallway between these two rooms.
I recall that our previous home did not have any floor registers in the kitchen, and I'm wondering if we can simply remove the two floor registers from the new kitchen, and relocate these two floor registers to the new living room?
