Listen: Home Depot discussed on Around the House with Ken Moon
"Home Depot, I heard you mentioned that you do not like plastic curved heat deflectors on heating vents. What's the reason? No, it's dangerous. No, she I events word. I have window coverings. Yeah. We talked about this a couple of weeks ago those curve deflectors, you know, that they're magnetized and they stick on your heat vents, and they blow the heat out of the room. Those are not those of kind of obviate the design of the heating system in the first place when we design a heating system, you'll notice that the heat fencer under the windows in the patio door. We we wash the warm air from the furnace over the cold, exterior surfaces, and that's intentional. That's where the heat losses from the house. And if you frustrate that by putting the plastic heat deflectors in then you blow the heat out into the middle of the room, and you have that cold surface, and it radiates heat from your body to the cold surface patio door window or wall, or whatever. Feel colder. And when you feel colder you tend to turn up the thermostat. So we want more even comfort and even temperatures around the rooms of your house. So I don't like those plastic deflectors, but you indicated an exception. The exception is if you have drapes down over the heat fence, and they balloon outward when the heat when the furnace runs, I you know, I understand you need deflectors in that case. But that's isolated case for the most part except for window, coverings, or drapes. I do not like the the plastic deflectors. They just th they cancel out and frustrate the original design of the heating system in terms of rain furnace filters. I."
