I Purchased a Vent Extender for My Living Room:

I’ve been having a hard time keeping my living room cool.

  • No matter what I set the thermostat to, it just doesn’t cool the living room.

The rest of our house has no problem being regulated by a thermostat, which is really odd. We’ve tried adjusting the thermostat to a lower temperature obviously, but it only affects the rest of our house negatively. For instance, if we lower the thermostat a few degrees in order to cool the living room, it only makes every other room in our house cooler. We can hardly feel the temperature difference in the living room though! In an attempt to regulate the temperature, I took to the internet to find a cheap and easy solution. I found a website that was selling a vent extender, which was used to redirect the air to a specific area in the room. All I needed to do was clip on the extender on top of the vent in the living room. The website promised to lower my energy bills and I wouldn’t need to fiddle with the thermostat anymore. I was sold! I purchased expedited shipping, and the vent extender was at my door in two days! When I took it out of the packaging, I saw it was basically a long piece of plastic, but understood I didn’t pay that much anyway. After attaching it to my vent, I waited in the living room to see if I would feel a difference. I waited for 30 minutes, but the air felt no cooler than before. I’m bummed that the vent extender didn’t work, and now I’m going to have to call a professional HVAC technician and spend double the money.
