Automatic Damper on a Smith Gas Boiler

Anybody know offhand if the auto damper closes for both thermostat and ventilation problem triggers?

I ask because in the latest freeze, the boiler has had a a hard time keeping the house over 60 degrees. We usually keep the therm. set at 64 or so which is comfortable, it hasn't made it that far in a few days. 59 is about as far as it gets.

Ventilation seems clear enough .. but I noticed that when boiler shuts off, auto damper closes. Im just not sure if this is an indication of ventilation problem, or normal behavior. If it's normal, maybe I have a dying thermostat?

In order to provide you with a good answer we need to know more about your system.

ie: Water temp and pressure, zones, fuel etc.

If you read the anouncement at the top of the Heating and Cooling forum - Read B-4 Posting, what we need to know is there.
