  • Designed to provide the best technology to equalize pressure between indoors and outdoors, while providing effective ventilation for a cleaner, healthier home. Eliminate gases, smoke or particulates generated from naturally vented combustion devices like a fireplace or water heater. Only BROAN offers such a complete and simple solution for automatic and controlled fresh air into the home every time you turn on the range hood! This is an interlocked, synchronized system that installs easily and requires only low voltage wiring to the sensor. Perfect for new construction or retrofit into an existing home.

    • BROAN® interlocked make-up air dampers provide outside air when required to keep the air in the home fresher by allowing the range hood to operate at optimum levels
    • Universal design works with any BROAN® range hood to balance indoor air pressure by providing interlocked make-up air without requiring a direct wire connection between the range hood and the damper. Instead a sensor is attached to the exhaust duct to detect if the range hood is operating
    • Slave dampers (MD6S, MD8S or MD10S) are interlocked to the main automatic or universal make-up air damper and open in unison for synchronized operation. They close, along with the main damper, as soon as the range hood is powered off. Slave dampers can be “ganged” together to provide a cost effective means to provide for higher volumes of make-up air
    • Interlocked make-up air damper systems meet IRC Code requirements for make-up air with range hoods over 400 CFM
    • Interlocked make-up air systems avoid wasted energy associated with barometric solutions and do not let unwanted air into the home during heating or cooling activities so air pressure is equalized for a well-balanced environment
    • Fresh air wall caps are required for use with Make-Up Air Dampers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model MD6TU make up air damper. The MD6TU is designed to be used with six inch duct work and a 6" fresh air intake wall cap with only a bird screen and no damper. 641AF is Broan's aluminum 6" fresh air inlet. It is not recommended to be installed with a roof cap for air intake because the vent always needs to be clear of any obstructions such as snow. Please contact the Technical Service Group at 800-637-1453 if you'd like to discuss your installation.

    Damper operation options

    I live in Minnesota, so I don't want to simply have a hole in the wall that opens when the range hood is on if the outside temp is -10 degrees. Thus, I am trying to source parts to create a Make-Up Air (MUA) divert attached to the HRV. I want to install the damper on the exhaust side of the HRV, such that when the hood is on, the tempered exhaust air is re-routed back to the house interior rather than out through the wall. That is easy to do with this MD6TU kit for the divert, but I would also like to install an additional slave damper downstream from the MUA damper that will shut vent through the exterior. To do that, I'd need a damper that is normally open, and powered closed. Is that something that is easily accomplished with the damper supplied with this kit? I was told by your phone help that "you might be able to, but it would void the UL listing on the damper". Is that actually true, or would it be a tested and approved application for the damper?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for the question on the models MD6T and MD6TU make up dampers. The MD6T is a six inch automatic make-up air damper. The MD6TU is the same damper as the MD6T but it includes a pressure sensor kit. The MD6T is used with specific models. The MD6TU is a universal make-up air damper that can be used with any Broan hood. You can compare the spec sheets on our web site or contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
