Protecting Your HVAC System During a Renovation

Renovating your Sugarland, Texas, home is an exciting experience, although it can bring some stress. Part of your home is about to turn into a construction zone, and it may be a portion that you use frequently, like the kitchen or bathroom. It’s important to protect your home and its HVAC system during a renovation.

Cover the Vents

The first way to protect your system is to make sure all the vents in the construction area are properly covered. Large particles of dust can move into the system and cause damage to various components and impact the quality of the air you breathe. Use tarps or other airtight materials to prevent this debris from entering the system through the vents and registers.

Turn Off the System Completely

Although it may get warm or chilly in your home, it’s best to turn the air conditioner or heater off when the workers are doing demolition or installing new components. The process of a renovation can stir up a lot of dirt and debris, which can get trapped in your ducts if the air conditioner or heater is running while the work is being done. As a result, you may end up being exposed to harmful construction materials and debris every time your system runs in the future.

Keep It Clean

Throughout the renovation process, keep your home as clean as possible. When the work is done for the day, use a vacuum with a HEPA-rated filter to remove any dust or dirt that remains in the work zone. You may also want to keep the area completely zoned off by using plastic room dividers. It’s also smart to replace your HVAC filter more often during the renovation process, especially if it will take more than a few days to complete.
