Planning ahead.....


When I put in the steel floor vents and 6" ducts in, I'd like to add dampers for the closest-to-the-furnace rooms so I can cut down the flow and get more heat to the far ends of the home. Can I add the dampers within eyeshot under the vent covers on the floor so I can just lift the cover and reach down to adjust the damper? It'd be much easier for me to regulate flow from above and I will do this unless there is some reason why I should/could not?

Thanks guys!

Heck, as noisy as this 'blast furnace' is, I doubt I'd notice whistling! lol
But there are no rules as to where in the duct line I can put them?

No codes on where.

But the closer to the register, the worse the noise can be.
