HVAC Considerations for Home Remodels

Bring your HVAC contractor into the planning process early so you can stay comfortable in your newly designed space.

Once the project is complete, you’ll have a fully functional and efficient way to keep the new or remodeled space comfortable. Your HVAC options may change as a result of your home renovation. You may be able to extend your HVAC system to condition the new or remodeled space. To determine whether your HVAC system will be able to handle the new space, your contractor will make a sizing calculation. You may still be able to use the current system if the sizing calculation indicates it is too small. Through zoning, your home can be divided into separate areas that will be heated and cooled separately. Aside from being able to use your current system, your home will be more comfortable, and your air conditioning bills may be lower. If your current system is too small or has reached the end of its lifespan, you may need to install an entirely new one. If you meet the criteria of the lender, you might be able to fold the cost into the financing for home renovations. Mini split ductless heat pumps provide heating and cooling without ductwork. For home additions or retrofits, they’re ideal. Their high efficiency and ease of installation make them a good choice. As each mini split has its own thermostat, you can turn it off or adjust the temperature when not in use.
