Duct Vents for Summer and Winter

I have a easy question regarding whether the duct vent should be open or close for the summer/winter. There is also a humidifier involved. Thanks

vents

Id say let it be ,let it be. If the system worked fine. You dont say AC or not. You might want to turn off the water to the humidifier. ED

?

I think you misinterpreted my question. All I want to know is whether to have the vent for the blower open (on) or closed (off) for the summer.

If you are referring to the damper on the duct of a bypass type humidifier, it is usually closed in the summer because you do not want any extra humidity and you need all the airflow that your blower can produce.
If you meant another damper, describe its location to us and we'll try again.
