Make up air and multi zone sensor
I do instal 600cfm rangehood in my kitchen. Vented outside of course. I have also motorized damper supplied by the manufacturer and it will be installed on the dedicated make up air duct being controlled by the switch on the hood. This part is clear. What is less understood is the question of preheating this make up air supply. The climate is cold up here and air, if not preheated, will mess up the whole system. Of course, company like Fantech offers elegant solution but… what if… Ecobee makes a thermostat with multi zoning temperature control sensors. So what if one of the sensors will be installed onto the furnace duct above from where my rangehood dedicated make up air gets in. Then cold air from outside will trigger the sensor, which then, through the main thermostat will trigger the furnace. Will that become a possible budget solution?
