How Home Improvement Can Affect Your HVAC

Whether you're looking for a fresh start or spending what seems like forever saving up to finally fix your house, remodeling can be exciting. However, it's imperative that you pay attention to how this process will affect all of the components of your home. One big one is your HVAC system.

Adding to It

If you plan on adding an addition to your home, you will likely want it to be heated and cooled like the rest of your home. This will require your contractor to extend your existing HVAC components, like your ductwork, to your new addition. Whenever this happens, it's imperative that your overall system be evaluated. You may find that you'll need to upgrade your existing HVAC system to ensure it can handle the new demands of a bigger home.

Avoiding Damage

If you're opting to remodel an existing room or section of your home, you must take the time to identify where your HVAC components are. You want to be sure that you don't damage any of your heat runs or vents. This is something that you want to actively discuss with your contractor prior to the start of your remodeling process to ensure that no HVAC components get damaged. Additionally, you'll want to try and keep any movement of your existing HVAC components to a minimum.

Dirt and Debris

Another aspect of your HVAC system that you'll want to take into consideration during a home remodel or addition is the dirt and debris involved with it. If you have a contractor cutting wood or sanding drywall in an existing room of your home, that debris can be sucked right into your ductwork and be delivered to other rooms of your home and your HVAC components.

It's necessary to properly protect the integrity of your HVAC system by sectioning off vents and registers in active work zones. You'll also find that you'll need to change out your HVAC filter more often as it will get filled with more airborne particles than usual while your home is under construction.
