    What is a good reasonable priced accurate manometer to measure my barometric damper?

    My furnace should be 0.025 and my flue should be -0.02. Looking at the gauges for sale i see accuracy (read
    inaccuracy) ratings that would make readings in the range that I need almost useless. Exp:

    0.3% of full scale 55.00wc (0.003x55=0.165) Does that mean that a reading of 0.02 could be off by as much as

    0.165?

    +/-0.3% of full scale 83.02 InH2O NKTECH NK-L3 (0.003x83.02=0.249)

    ±1.5% of full scale 4.00wc Dwyer 478A-0 (0.15x4=0.6)

    Am I doing something wrong here?


    tks,
    pa
