How to Select

How to select HVAC Dampers

A HVAC Damper is a valve that regulates [and oftentimes] stops the air flow in a ventilation system. Such fittings are installed to cut down the unnecessary applications or rooms that aren’t occupied from the actual flow of air. This provides homeowners with the opportunity to save some money.

To select the perfect HVAC damper for your particular system you need to specify where it will be installed. Such accessory is oftentimes installed inside a chimney, air handler or duct. If you need to cut an unused room of the house from the central air-conditioning, you should select the type of damper that can be manually controlled. Backdraft dampers are perfect to regulate the air temperature and flow for room-by-room connections.

Size and design are the next factors to consider. Selecting the damper that will fit your ventilation applications is crucially important for the correct operation of the entire system. Carefully measure the diameters of all applications and then select the damper with the exact same measurements.

Another important factor to consider is the control option of your future HVAC damper. The only types that exist today are automatic and manual. A dumper with manual operation is turned by a handle that is installed outside of duct. Such types require your direct attention. Automatic HVAC dampers feature more convenient controls. They are usually equipped with a pneumatic or electric motor. In addition to that, you can connect them to a thermostat or an automatic system that regulates all of the devices in the building. While manual damper has lower price and suits all new and old ventilation systems, automatic dampers increase the convenience but also the amount of money you will need to spend on their installation.

The material from which the HVAC dampers are made of should be resistant to a constantly changing environment. What it means is that a damper should offer the same high level of operation in wet, warm and cold conditions. Galvanized steel is the best material to fit such requirements.

When you have found the best option to suit your system, spend a couple of more minutes to analyze its price. What you need to know is that the most expensive HVAC dumpers are oftentimes not the best options and vice versa. All of the top brands that manufacture HVAC equipment offer various options for all price categories. Look for a damper that has affordable price but comes from a well-known brand, because top companies offer warranty for every item they produce.
