The HVAC damper is a component in charge of controlling the airflow in an HVAC system. It helps to adjust your room temperature. It could be compared to a faucet switch, when a damper is closed, it stops the water from coming out. For the same reason, when you close the damper, the airflow can not come in or come out.

HVAC Dampers for ventilation systems are usually installed on a diffuser or grille's back side, its main function is to control the airflow coming in or going out. They are like valves, which play a vital role in your ventilation system.
