One of the things that get mixed reactions is a home remodeling project; it’s both exciting and frustrating.
Many factors come into play, from budgeting, planning, and ensuring the safety of things around.
If you’re going through a major home remodel or perhaps adding a few square footages to your home, your HVAC unit may be affected one way or the other.
Here are some of the considerations to keep in mind to protect your HVAC unit
- Protect your unit
There’s a lot of dust, dirt, and debris produced from the remodeling, which will affect your HVAC unit. So, make sure to turn off your unit and cover it well during the renovation.
Regular cleaning of the filters during the renovation is also helpful. After the renovation, you may also have to call the experts to clean your ductwork and the entire unit thoroughly.
- Will your current HVAC system support your new space?
Too small or too big doesn’t cut it. A remodeling project may mean you have to consider the size of your unit to support your new heating and cooling needs.
- An addition might mean an extra capacity load on your AC
During an AC installation, the technician usually evaluates your home’s load capacity before recommending the right size for your home. With additional footage, you may need a larger AC.
- An old system calls for an upgrade
If your system has been in use for 15 or more years, it may not be as efficient as you need it to be anymore; a remodel is almost like starting afresh.
Upgrading to a better unit adds to that fresh start, plus you’ll be saving on your energy bills.
A home renovation will make your home feel new and fresh, but make sure it’s not at the expense of the most important components of your home.
