How to Prep Your HVAC System for a Home Renovation

November 17, 2019

Homeowners in Ocala, Florida, rely heavily on their air conditioners and heaters. Because your HVAC system is such an essential component of your home, it’s necessary to protect it from potential damage. A home renovation can be harmful if you don’t prepare your HVAC system ahead of time. Let’s discuss steps you can take to prevent damage to your HVAC system if you’re planning a home renovation.

Schedule an Inspection

Before your renovation begins, consider scheduling a professional inspection of your HVAC system and ductwork. Your service technician can review your renovation plans to ensure potential construction doesn’t interfere with your system functioning correctly.

An HVAC professional can also determine if your ductwork needs reconfiguring to accommodate any changes to your home. If you have to make any changes to your ductwork, you’ll save time and money by making them during the renovation.

Invest in Large Tarps

Ideally, your HVAC system shouldn’t run while you’re performing renovations inside the house. This will prevent the system from sucking up extra dirt, dust and debris.

However, it’s usually much too warm in Ocala to work without air conditioning. To limit damaging debris clogging your HVAC system, block off the rooms in which you’re working with tarps. Also, close and cover vents and registers in those rooms.

Stock Up on Air Filters

Because you’ll probably need to run your air conditioner while you’re completing your renovations, stock up on air filters. The extra dust and debris mean that you’ll have to change your air filter more than once a month. Changing the filter is important to do before work begins and immediately after your project is complete. As a result, you’ll prevent damage to your system and costly repairs.
