If you’re planning a home remodeling project this summer, don’t forget about your HVAC system and the role it will play in the process.
Home Additions and HVAC Considerations
If you’re planning an addition to your home this year, it’s important to consult with an HVAC professional before the first hammer swings. Additional space also means additional runs for heating and cooling the space. Placing the vents and running new ductwork need to be incorporated into your architectural plan.
Working with an experienced HVAC company is invaluable during this process. Placement of the vents and air returns will make a difference in how comfortable the space is in the future. Too few vents will make heating and cooling a difficult job that may cause other areas of the home to be too hot or too cold depending on the season.
If you are adding a significant amount of new space, it’s possible your current HVAC system will not be large enough to adequately heat and cool the home to a comfortable level. A larger air conditioner, for example, may be needed especially if you’re adding a sun porch with many large windows that could make the room uncomfortably warm.
Upgrading Your HVAC System
Even if your renovation does not include adding additional space, replacing your HVAC system should still be considered if it is 15+ years old. Even the most meticulously maintained system is living on borrowed time when it’s past 15 years old. New systems have many benefits that include better and more effective air flow and overall energy efficiency. Rebates from local energy companies are often available making the upgrade more affordable. In addition to this, Binder Heating and Air Conditioning offers financing options.
