Protecting Your HVAC System: 3 Renovation Tips

September 28, 2019

Renovating your home is an exciting and stressful time. The promise of brand new interiors is a huge draw. However, there are some risks involved if you’re not careful. Here are three renovation tips to protect the HVAC system in your Jacksonville, Florida, home:

Speak With a Professional

If you’re doing significant renovation in the home, consult with an HVAC professional before beginning work. Go over what work you’ll do so they can highlight any potential pain-points in the process. Once you have a full understanding of how the HVAC landscape will change in your home, the project will go much more smoothly. As a result, you’ll unnecessary financial strain in the future.

Turn Off Your HVAC Unit

While it’s not fun to do a lot of DIY home renovation without the comfort of an HVAC system, the circulating dust and debris can quickly clog your system. As a result, it can to major headaches down the road. Close the registers and vents for added protection.

Clean As You Renovate

Rushing from one project to the next is faster and easier. But a high amount of dust and debris can create a higher chance of clogging once the renovation is over and you’ve turned the HVAC system on. It’s even more crucial if you’re working with any toxic components or those that release volatile organic compounds. Cleaning each day as you wrap up work will also keep you more comfortable while you work and reduce the stress of having to clean up after an entire major renovation project.

You may even want to consider adding an air filter in the rooms that you’re working in. This will help you breathe better and help reduce cleanup time at the end of each day.

Taking on a DIY renovation project is fun and rewarding. Make sure you take proper precautions and protect your HVAC system while the renovation takes place.
