I am going to sound stupid here, but these deflectors only seem to point down. Can someone explain how you adjust it for cooling?

Answer: 
You point the deflector up by pointing the deflector toward the ceiling. The magnets are the controlling element. Magnets are placed at the base of where you want them to be pointed.
Say you want the magnet to go upward you place the magnets at the base of the vent if you want them to pointed downward you put the magnets at the top end of the vent cover.

Answer: 
It depends if you have a floor register or a wall register. If it's on the floor, there is no adjustment. if it is a wall register, up for cold air and down for warm air.

Will these air deflectors be moved by having a Roomba/Neato robot vacuum hit them while cleaning?

This question is from Heat and Air Deflector
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
July 10, 2016
I have air vents in the floor on the second floor of my townhouse that I would like to use these on. I have robot vacuums clean both floors of my home. Does anyone know if these are Roomba/Neato friendly (i.e., they won't cause the vacuum to get stuck and/or won't get removed from the vent if they're bumped into). If the vacuum does cause them to move, has anyone found any solutions to that (3M command strips?)
Thanks for the help.

Answer: 
We have never tested these for remote vacuum cleaners hitting them, so we cannot say if they would get knocked off the vent.

So far, they appear to be doing a good job of preventing warm air from blowing (wastefully) up into the drapes and windows, instead of into the living space. Wish I bought these years ago! As a "bonus", they act as a "splash guard" for the floor vent in the 1/2 bathroom. That one is positioned directly under the towel bar, and inevitably, water from your hands drips onto and into the register, causing a mess and ruining the metal cover. I was also advised to remove these during the Summer, when using the AC. You actually want cool air mixing with the warmer layer above it, not blowing horizontally across the floor. This can cause 'hot pockets' (not the tasty pepperoni kind :) to form where the cool air passes under the warm, or even a lack of "dehumidification" . I have not tested that theory yet however, since I just got them this week. I'd rate them at 4-4.5 stars ... the plastic could be a hair thicker. I definitely recommend these for poorly-positioned floor vents.

Perhaps these are good for floor based vents, but I have a ceiling based vent, and this thing does nothing for air flow. Since the vent in my bedroom faces down, it creates a pocket of hot air my side of the bed. Nothing like waking up at 2am and very other time the heat goes off as I get all the hot air. Got this hoping it would help push the hot air into the room and create a more even heating experience. Not even close. I still get a hot pocket of air on my side of the room. And as Home Depot does not carry any other styles, I will be going to Lowes to get a bigger one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for those silly floor registers that blow upwards My home mostly has heat registers that blow the warm air upwards. In addition to the fact that this puts the vertical blinds into a frenzy, the air that is intended to warm the room just rises that much faster and doesn't do the job. The most noticeable improvement with these was that the vertical blinds are now calm when the heat comes on. Big plus. The other is that the heat seems to distribute more in the room before it rises. Not sure I can provide evidence of this, but it makes sense to me that these contribute to a better convection. The only down side is that the magnets are just magnets and can be kicked out of place. If these deflectors were made to adhere more permanently, though, they would break, so it works best as is.
