    Honeywell HZ311. I sent him a link to the rectangular honeywell dampers but I'm sure I'll have to have someone else do it right and try to resolve it in small claims.

    If I recall correctly he stated that for zoning he only they only had round as an option. Is there a difference between a standard damper and one that is controlled by a zoning system?

  9. Is it standard practice to use loose insulation inside of air ducts?

    BTW, I have no idea what the additional ductwork on the side is but Im assuming it is related to the zoning of the theater room as it was added at that time and not present with other units.

    How do I find out if they have traps? I'm sure if I ask the plubing co they will say yes just to avoid issues. Do the traps go dry if not regularly used as would be the case with floor drains in...
