Overview

  • Save energy and utility costs by only heating or cooling occupied areas of your home
  • Dampers designed to be electronically opened and closed
  • Special design ensures no air leakage for efficient air control

Essential Info

As energy costs rise, it is important to find different solutions that help conserve energy and keep your heating and cooling expenses to a minimum. Because heaters and air conditioners are the largest energy consumers in homes today, one way to start reducing the use of energy is to install electronic air duct dampers. This 6-Inch Diameter Normally Closed Electronic HVAC Air Duct Damper allows you to shut off airflow to unoccupied or unused rooms, which limits the flow of heated or cooled air to the areas that really need it. The airflow changes the temperature in the occupied areas faster than conventional air ducts, providing shorter run times for your heating and/or cooling system, allowing you to use less energy and save money. By adding one or more dampers you can create zones throughout your home that can be electronically controlled. A 24V AC power supply, sold separately, is required for use in a single-zone system.

What's Included

  • 6-Inch Diameter Normally Closed Electronic HVAC Air Duct Damper
  • More Info

    Multi-Zone Control
    Enjoy having complete electronic control of which rooms your HVAC system heats or cools by using dampers in conjunction with one of the following RCS HVAC air duct zone controllers and a multi-zone thermostat:
  • 2-Zone Controller
  • 4-Zone Controller

    Single Zone Control with INSTEON
    This electronic damper also offers the flexibility of being controlled from your INSTEON network by connecting a plug-in 24V AC power supply to the damper and plugging it into an ApplianceLinc. Once that connection has been made the damper can then be operated from any INSTEON controller, such as a KeypadLinc, SwitchLinc or RemoteLinc; all items sold separately.

    Wiring
    For wiring between the damper and zone controller, damper and power supply, or zone controller and power supply, simply run 2-conductor wire between them. 18-gauge or 22-gauge wire is recommended.

    Normally-Open or Normally-Closed Models
    When no power is supplied to the Normally Closed unit, the damper will be closed. When no power is supplied to the Normally Open unit, the damper will be open.

    Ultra-Secure Seal Eliminates Air Leakage
    A specially designed solid positive seal eliminates air leakage, which can reduce efficiency and cause "wind" noise in the system. This duct damper is designed for virtually silent operation.

    JOSEPH -- san rafael, CA   9/5/2009
    Works well---does leak just a bit of air, but all in all I'm happy with it. For my application it needed the 24V power supply as well.
    K MARK -- layton, UT   3/2/2008
    Exactly what I was looking for and very timely shipping.
    SHAWN -- keller, TX   11/26/2005

    i am very satisfided about your product and service , thank you i will order again
    ALAN -- newton, MA   4/8/2004
    Operated just fine. I did expect when off there would be no leakage of air but it wasn't designed that way. Since there is only a small amount of air leakage when off, it will meet my needs.
