Vents must be on mesh boundaries or on the side of an obstruction. You've created a tube out of 4 obstructions and the vent is backing on to open space.

Instead of creating a hollow obstruction for your HVAC duct, use a single solid obstruction. The airflow will be calculated by the HVAC solver and re-join with the rest of the simulation at the vents on either side.
