Q & A: Which is more energy efficient, vents closer to outside walls or closer to the middle of house?

Question by Bgosa: Which is more energy efficient, vents closer to outside walls or closer to the middle of house?
We are considering building a home and energy efficiency is very important to us. We spoke to 2 different home builders and got 2 different answers. One said that having the vents closer to the windows and blowing towards the windows would be more efficient and the other said that having the vents away from the windows would be better? Who is right? Thank you!

    Depends on which vents you are talking about. Generally cold air returns are on interior walls while supply registers are on outside walls.
