      Protecting Your HVAC System During Home Renovations

      Air conditioning installation is a considerable expense, so you want to protect your current HVAC equipment as much as possible. Home remodeling projects can be bad for your HVAC unit because it’s exposed to more dirt and debris.  Dirt and dust can cause HVAC damage that’s expensive to repair, so it’s your job to protect it. Here’s how.

      Protecting Your Hvac System During Home Renovations

      Plan early. Talk to your HVAC contractor before starting your home remodeling project. As experts, they can give you pointers regarding what to do and what not to do when trying to protect your HVAC equipment from dirt and debris.

      Avoid using your HVAC system. Turn off your HVAC system while the project is still ongoing. You don’t want it to suck in dirt, dust and debris from the job site, which can lead to costly damage.

      Close the vents and registers. Close off the vents and registers located at the site of your home improvement project. Cover them with tarps or plastic sheets to prevent dust from getting in and being sucked into the ducts when you use the HVAC system. If you have no choice but to use your system before your home improvement project is completed, talk to your air conditioning repair contractor about how to safely do this, as it’s not a good idea to close off too many registers at the same time.

      Limit construction activity inside your house. Sanding and cutting are major parts of the home improvement process. Instead of allowing the workers to do these things indoors, ask them to do them outside. This can help limit the amount of dirt and debris that could potentially be sucked into your HVAC system.

      Control the dust. Talk to your home remodeler about dust control. They should use plastic sheets or tarps to protect your home from dust and debris. 

      Clean frequently. Don’t wait for the project to be finished before cleaning your home. Ask your contractor about how they plan to keep the work area clean. You can also do your part by vacuuming and wiping surfaces more often than normal.

      Clean the HVAC filter. There’s more dirt and dust in your home than normal when there’s a home improvement project underway. It’s advisable to check and clean or replace your HVAC filter more often at this time. You can also call your air conditioning maintenance provider for a more thorough cleaning.

      If you have a home renovation project planned, consult Superior Air to make sure your HVAC system is protected throughout the process.
