Should I install a damper?
What are the advantages of installing this item, and under what conditions is it recommended?
Thank you for your question on the model BP87 seven inch in-line damper. The BP87 is normally used in-line with the duct work from a range hood. It is a good idea to have some sort of damper in the range hood duct work to keep the outside air from blowing back into the house.

Range Hood damper
How do I know if this damper is the right one for my hood, which appears to have been installed w/o a damper, as cold air flows in?
Data tag and fan pics are attached.
Thank you for your question on the model BP87 seven inch round damper. The pictures included do not show the model number of the range hood or the type and size of duct work connected to your range hood. The BP87 will work with seven inch round duct work. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for assistance.

Allure model for damper selection
Where do I find the model # of an Allure range hood, so I can select/order the correct damper for it?
Thank you for your question on the Allure range hood. There is a data plate underneath the range hood (usually on the left side) that would have the model or series number on it. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.
