We will be moving into a new home in a month and I am concerned about the location of the ac/heat supply into a room. We have a sectional couch so there is only one way to insert it into the room, but unfortunately I think it may harm the heating/cooling effectiveness. The room is 14x12 and the supply is on the 14' wall, about 16 inches from the wall. The couch will be located along the 12' wall and since it is about 9 feet long, one of the armrests will be about a foot from the supply. The couch has a flat vertical side with no overhang, but the supply will effectively be blowing at the side of the couch. Could anyone give me any recommendations if this will be a problem?

Thanks for the reply!

I think I misspoke. I meant it is a new home for us, but the home is actually 80 years old and was converted to central air. The supply and return are on the same wall on opposite sides of the room. Does this change anything? Does anyone have any links to some diverters?

Final question, this is the inside wall, not the outside one. Still a problem?
