    If the damper is for combustion air.What if the damper fails to open. Don't think dampers are allowed for combustion air by code

    There is a company that makes the product you need right out of the box.
    The company is called Hoyme.
    The part number is F2. You can get them in 4-8" round duct.
    Very easy to install and prewired.
    Wired in series with W on both furnaces, motor fails open to allow heat if something goes wrong.

    Made in Canada, so it's bullet proof ;-)

    Im a bit confused the previous threat of wiring it to the w-c would be correct to have it open for heating. It sounds like you are talking about combustion air and dampers if this is the case this is a life safty issue and you would really have to look at manufacturers suggestions. For makeup air in the boiler it is not unusual to have a tie in to the burner contact point on each boiler to open the dampers.

The furnaces are not twined, each have a seperate T-Stat and control different rooms. How can I control this damper with two furnaces, but not to back-feed to the furnace that is off?

    Thanks, Keith


    I'm an HVAC/R service Tech! Just have not got enough post to be pro yet.
    As previously suggested last year when this thread was created (2) current sensing relays in series with actuator. An independent power source would be preferred in this application due to one or the other being shut down for what ever reason.

    For all those that have suggested that it might be a combustion air damper and that you cannot use an actuator with a combustion damper, well you are wrong on both counts.

    The combustion air wither provided from an outside air damper or a combustion air fan must be proven before the pre-purge takes place, during the run cycle and during any post purge cycle.

    CSD-1 and others provide the guide lines here.

    I already have a motorized damper I plan to use in the line right after it enters the house. I just need a diagram on how to wire it and where I can get the relays. link preferred.
