During a major home renovation, the air quality within your interior spaces can go from great to worrisome quite quickly. With the stress that a home remodel can bring, the last issue you want to be dealing with is poor air quality.
Luckily, there are some tips and tricks that you can use to jump-start the efficiency of your home’s HVAC system, ensuring high-quality airflow during and after your renovation.
Eliminate Air Pollution from Your Indoor Space
With so much activity in and out of your house during a remodel, the amount of external air pollution is probably at an all-time high inside your home.
However, with the right HVAC technology, you can reduce the amount of external air pollution in your home and purify the existing indoor air at the same time.
A home renovation is a great time to invest in a whole-home air purifier, as it can actively lower any external irritants and debris from floating through your ventilation system.
There are options available, but UV air sanitizers are one of the more popular options on the market today.
Keep Whole-Home Comfort in Mind
Although there’s plenty of hustle and bustle during a home renovation, it’s important to keep in mind why you’re investing in a remodel: the everyday life that takes place in your home. A home is where you gather with friends and family to relax and find peace, so make sure that the air you breathe is clean, pure, and fresh.
By getting your ducts cleaned during or after your home renovation, you can find peace knowing that your duct and ventilation system is clean, making clean air the norm while keeping your HVAC system as efficient as possible.
Your home’s indoor air quality doesn’t have to suffer during a renovation. By choosing to make your HVAC system and air quality a priority during your remodel, you can rest assured that you’ll be saving both money and energy in the future.
Save Energy by Replacing Your Air Filter
The air filter in your HVAC system is responsible for keeping dirt, dust, and other debris out of your vents, ducts, and ultimately, your interior air.
Checking and replacing your air filter on a regular basis not only helps to keep your indoor air clean, but also it will save you plenty of money in energy costs.
When your air filter is clogged or dirty, your HVAC system must work harder to push air through the filter.
This issue is amplified during a home renovation when there’s most likely much more dust floating around your home. Thankfully, by regularly checking your air filter during a home renovation, you can nearly eliminate this issue, helping the environment and your wallet by lowering the amount of energy used by your HVAC system.
