Yes, what we watch on TV can cause things to heat up in the room.

Dam, whatever's on that TV must be hot & steamy to raise the temperature on the thermostat... or maybe it's the heat coming out the back of the TV. One won't make you go blind.

Curious what the issue is?  LED TVs don't emit much heat.  Is it enough to fool the thermostat?  And of course, this is something you observed at a client's house, not your own, correct?  LOL

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS in the last commercial building I was in the HVAC person installed the thermostat right under a vent. It was really stupid! We had to tape a sheet of paper above/over it to keep the hot or cold air off of it.
