I live in a 3-level townhouse, and in the summers (like now) the top floor of the house is always very warm: I have the thermostat set to 73 degrees, because that is the absolute highest it can be set without the upstairs turning into an oven. As it is I have a fan running in the master bedroom 24/7 just to keep the temperature reasonable, and I’m still usually sweating by the time I leave for work in the mornings. Meanwhile, the basement is freezing! (Yes, I have the downstairs registers closed – the ones on the middle floor, too.) So, I’ve been considering getting an electric register booster.
There are two kinds:[ul][li]one that sits on top of your existing register, and[/li]one that replaces the register[/ul]The latter is the more expensive option, but looks nicer and seems to make more sense to me. Does anyone have experience with either of these contraptions (or anything similar)? The Amazon reviews are mixed, and few in number – IOW, basically useless.
