What Can an HVAC Damper Do for Your Home?

Damper 10.6.22

An HVAC damper adjusts the flow of conditioned air into a single room or zone inside a house. In many cases, a dedicated HVAC damper for an individual room or zone is located where the smaller duct that extends to that room branches off the home’s central air-supply duct. Air balancing is the process of adjusting multiple dampers so airflow volume into each room maintains uniform temperatures throughout the entire house.

When HVAC airflow is unbalanced, temperatures in various rooms may differ noticeably, depending on the location of the room in relation to the central air handler. Differing square footage between the rooms in a house is also a factor. Often, repeated thermostat adjustments and readjustments are made in an attempt to compensate and achieve uniform comfort everywhere at once. However, the usual result is inconsistent heating and cooling coverage, higher monthly HVAC costs, and more wear and tear on system components.
