With the weather chilling in the United States, homeowners everywhere are seeing an increase in their energy costs. With many of us stuck inside, efficient heating and ventilation is a must!
Poor ventilation can limit air flow throughout the home, create air leakage, and increase the pressure within your duct system. Poor ventilation is especially dangerous as temperatures increase within the home, leading to potential damage to your HVAC equipment. Dampers such as a Pressure Relief Barometric Damper ensure that the air pressure will not cause the heating and cooling system to overwork. This is especially important to any areas that have zoned ducting that can create pressure build-up against HVAC equipment. This damper will only open by its sliding weight once the pre-determined pressure is reached within the system. This sliding weight is easily adjustable to your preference. The Pressure Relief Damper is also constructed from heavy-duty galvanized steel and available in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of your application.
