I am redoing my basement and part of the work involves boxing around
ductwork which has a couple of dampers that control the flow to the
whole house. I have always left these dampers open, and controlled
the flow at the registers upstairs. Is there any reason why I can't
just lock these dampers to stay open and just box around the ductwork
and bury them? I had thought about putting some kind of access door,
but I don't think it would look nice considering the location.
Thanks for all the tips but they aren't that bad so I guess I'll live with
it for now..The glasses are about 5 years old and I don't have the script as
they were made right at the eye doctors..They are invisaline bifocals..I got
them right after I had cataract surjury on my right eye...The left one needs
it now so I need to go back anyway...Probably do it in the spring...Again
Not a code reason, but if his HVAC equipment was ever serviced or
some sort of imbalance was causing trouble, its better to have access
panels than have HVAC technicians cutting into your walls...
The OP knows where those balancing dampers are but will the next
owner of the home ?
