Testing Your Damper Motor
Testing your damper motor can be difficult when you don’t know what to look for, which is why it’s a job best left to the HVAC professionals. An HVAC contractor can test the damper motor itself to see if it’s the source of your heating and cooling problems. However, you can also look for signs that point to your damper being the problem.
A damper motor that doesn’t work is like a broken traffic light; there’s nothing to guide the flow of traffic. Since damper motors help your system funnel hot and cold air into specific areas of your home, you might start noticing more inconsistent or abnormal temperatures throughout.
If air is circulating but your room won’t maintain the temperature you set, or if there’s limited airflow in the room, you may have a faulty damper motor. Time to call a pro to help!
