If your top floors are too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer, then your damper must be at fault. An improper setting of the damper could cause hot or cold spots within your home. This device is used for regulating the supply of conditioned air that passes through the duct and vents. It affects the indoor temperature by pushing cold or hot air into some areas or sections of the house. At times, the handles could loosen which can lead to reduced airflow and inconsistent comfort.
Some houses have automated dampers, and others may have manually-operated dampers that require hands-on tuning. Adjusting this device requires a professional to get the right heating or cooling in your space.
Here at Gober Heating & Air Conditioning, we have qualified technicians who can help you adjust the damper to get the proper amount of air for every room or area of your home. Whether you have a manual-type or an automated damper, don’t hesitate to contact our team to assist you with your HVAC problems.
