How to Adjust Your Manual Dampers
- The damper is located above furnace and controls air flow to different parts of your house.
- In the summer time, its advised to close the damper off on the main trunk line off about half way to push more air flow to the upper level of your home.
- In the winter time, you'll want to open up the damper, so to restrict air flow to the up-stairs, so the upper floor doesn't get too hot.
Due to the health risks and concerns posed by the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and the recommendation of the CDC, we are currently limiting the scope of our warranty evaluations for the safety of our team members, trade partners and homeowners. For the next few weeks we will only be addressing urgent and emergency warranty service requests. All other requests will be put on hold until the CDC and/or local public health authorities advise that social distancing is no longer required. If you have any questions please reach out to your Warranty Service Coordinator or call us at (302) 226-4215.

Our Commitment To Being Better Builders
There’s only one thing more satisfying than building a high quality home and that’s surprising our homeowners with our strong commitment to customer service.
From the first handshake to the last, we guide you through the process of building your dream home. Even after settlement, your relationship with Schell Brothers continues. Our Warranty Service Team will be there for you long after the ink is dry at settlement.
At the Home Orientation, we provide a comprehensive homeowner’s Guide specific to each customer’s home. This resource answers many common questions, such as use and maintenance guidelines, troubleshooting tips and emergency information.
As you settle into your home during the first year, you may find items that need further adjustment. In addition, you may have questions about the Limited Warranty, home maintenance, proper operation of the appliances, heating and air conditioning, or other home systems. Many of these items are included in this Guide and online. We also want to assure you that the Warranty Service staff at Schell Brothers is available to assist you in these areas.
Schell Brothers’ full commitment to our homeowners makes us truly a ‘better builder.’
Schell Brothers is known for providing outstanding Warranty Service. While many builders rely solely on their subcontractor to provide post-settlement service, Schell Brothers has an entire department dedicated to assisting our homeowners. Warranty Service Requests can be submitted through our online portal and our team of professional coordinators and technicians will be ready to assist you.
To show our homeowners our true commitment to customer satisfaction and quality building, we offer a consumer–friendly Limited Warranty which clearly describes both the homeowner’s and Schell Brothers’ responsibilities throughout the warranty period.
Many customers assume that once their home has been completed, their builder “disappears” from their life. At Schell Brothers, we consider that unfinished business.
