Price Factors

Not sure what it should cost to replace your damper motor? Here are a few things to consider that may impact the total price for the part and installation.

Damper Motor Make and Model

Not all damper motors are equal. There’s a variety of different brands to choose from that range in size, shape, and voltage. Although their primary function is the same, the level of efficiency and the price will differ. However, ticket price shouldn’t be your only concern: different damper systems require different damper motors, so it's best to check with an HVAC technician to get the right damper motor for your unit.


The severity of the damage can impact how long it takes to remove the old part and replace it with the new damper motor. As with other installations, your unique space and surroundings can make it easier or more challenging for your technician to do the job. In turn, labor costs can vary.
