Barometric Dampers on oil furnace?


Are these needed on the newer furnaces? I have a Lenox furnace that is about ten years old. 80% efficiency if I recall correctly. Thanks

Yes they are.

Without it. Your combustion efficiency will wavier, flame control will wavier, and you could end up having a chimney fire.
