Is it safe to put a bed over a vent?

It's unlikely but not impossible that blocking a heating vent and causing the furnace apparatus to overheat could cause a fire. Put the furniture over the vent in summertime, and you decrease the overall air flow from a central air-conditioning system.

Beside this, is it okay to put my bed over a floor vent?

Its fine to put a bed over a heat vent as long as you dont have the box spring sitting right on top of it unless you close the vent. If you have it on a some kind of frame with a couple inches of clearance, you will be fine.

Beside above, how do I redirect a vent under my bed? By installing vent deflectors, you can direct the airflow in ways that bring more comfort and save energy. For example, when vents are beneath a bed, use a deflector to direct the air outward, upward or to the side to prevent the cold or heat from dispersing beneath the bed before it reaches the room.

Also question is, is it bad to cover a vent?

You could mess with the air flow. Just because you cover the vent, it doesn't mean your HVAC system knows that. It will keep pushing air to those vents, and if they're closed, you could cause a buildup of air pressure and insufficient airflow which could damage your system.

Can you put furniture over a return vent?

Here are some simple ways you can do just that: Keep couches, chairs and other large pieces of furniture at least 10 inches away from your cold air return vents. Avoid covering your cold air return vents with curtains, drapes or rugs. Always check your air filters and replace them when needed.
