Renovations and upgrades to your Baltimore, Maryland, home let you infuse your home with personality and an updated style. However, a project like this can be stressful for you and your Baltimore, MD HVAC system. Here are a few tips that can help you protect your heating and cooling equipment from damage.

Make Your HVAC System Part of the Planning

Before work begins, consider whether your HVAC system is appropriately sized for the area it will need to cover once the renovation is complete. Adding walls or rooms changes the way air flows through your home and may require your HVAC unit to work harder. If you’re going to need a new unit, it’s best to know upfront so you can budget for it.

Keep Dirt and Debris Out of Your System

One of the most significant risks to your HVAC system is dirt and debris in the air stirred up by the work you’re having done on your home. Try these tips to reduce the amount of material that enters your ductwork.

  • Turn off your HVAC system before the work begins so that your ductwork doesn’t suck up particles and debris while the work is ongoing.
  • Close the vents and registers in the rooms where the work is taking place, as well as adjacent areas.
  • Use tarps to create a barrier between the areas you’re working on and the rest of the house.
  • Relegate as much work as possible outside or to the garage, especially dusty tasks like sanding and cutting.
  • Clean as you go rather than waiting until the renovation is complete. Removing debris every day reduces the amount of dust and foreign particles that get drawn into the HVAC.

Once the work is done and you have your beautiful new space, revisit your HVAC system to make sure it’s still in good working order and as clean as possible. For your peace of mind, call Griffith Energy Services before you start your project. We can help you evaluate your HVAC situation and put together a plan to protect your home while the work gets done.
