    Dampers are. This is why most professionals would recommend starting out small. If a room is too hot, you will want to crank open the damper just a bit to add more airflow to the room. Eric Burton 19 Dec Michael Lewis 11 Mar Well, you might be surprised to learn that dirty ducts can impact your airflow as well because all the dirt and debris can choke off the amount of air going to each room.

    Practically speaking, adjusting your dampers is as simple as turning the lever to open or close the damper. There's a wee bit more to it than just that, however.In summer, the goal is to force the chilled air upstairs.

    Open each damper by moving its lever so it points in the direction the duct travels, not across it. With all the balancing dampers open, the air.If a room is too cool during the summer, you will want to slightly close the vent so that it stops some of the air from entering that room.

    Because dampers are located near your HVAC unit itself, rather than at the end of runs like registers are, they provide a more efficient way to redirect heated or cooled air to exactly where you want it.

    In other homes the dampers, if they exist, have been covered up by drywall during remodeling projects or when a basement was finished into a rec room or some such thing.

    From your main unit, follow each duct as far as you can before it disappears.

    A balancing damper is just a simple mechanism inside the ductwork that closes off a given duct—they are called balancing dampers because you use them to balance the flow of air throughout the system.

    The benefit of this arrangement is that it closes down the duct closer to the source of the hot or cold air and helps more efficiently redirect the forced air somewhere else in your home.

    By turning the lever, you rotate the plate, which allows more or less air to flow through that specific duct.
