What is a damper?

The dampers located in your HVAC ducting affect your ability to keep your home at a comfortable temperature and humidity level. Furthermore, older dampers increase your energy consumption and bill every month.

Before we get into why you might want a new damper, let’s take a second to explain what a damper is. A damper is a valve or plate that regulates the flow of air in your HVAC system. Often you turn it on or off to adjust the airflow.

Why do you want to replace a damper?

Installing new dampers to replace old and ineffective ones can improve the efficiency of an HVAC.

Correctly working dampers extend the longevity of your HVAC system. They allow the system to work with less effort while maintaining temperature and humidity controls. We recommend you check out our collection of dampers today.

Make sure you find the right size damper

First, choose a damper that fits the ductwork.

Make sure you use the right size for your dampers. Otherwise, you could put a lot of unnecessary stress and strain on the damper and HVAC system. By choosing the right-size dampers, the hassle and headache disappear.

Damper seals are incredibly important

You always want a tight seal on the damper. If you need to manipulate the damper seal it could affect the rate of air flow into your HVAC system. You might need to balance whether the damper is open or closed to ensure the HVAC system and ductwork functions properly.

Motor quality and energy efficiency is critical

The motorized system that drives your dampers is of critical importance. You need to select a high-quality motor that can work for years, while making it easy to maintain the damper motor if something does go wrong.
