Are you thinking of making changes to your Sarasota home? Did you know that renovations: whether large, like building on a second story, or small, such as changing the footprint of your bathroom, often reduce the effectiveness of your air conditioning system? Here Custom Climate Concepts has detailed some of the most common ways that home renovation can impact your cool, and how we can help.
- Go Over Load: With more square footage to your home, you may exceed your current air conditioning systems’ load capacity. If this is the case you have two main options. You can either replace your current system with a new and larger one, or you can get an independent AC system to cool down the new addition. Depending on the type of addition you may want to consider a mini-split system.
- Mind Your Vents: Even if you don’t add to the size of your home, changing the configuration of a room, or rooms, may require changing the placement, location, or direction of vents. You may even need additional vents. A word of caution: vents are not a do-it-yourself job.
- Dirt & Dust Damage: A build up of debris – from sawdust, to pieces of building material and much more – can wreak havoc on parts of your AC system including air filters, vents, and registers. Plus, when dirt and dust builds up in your ductwork it negatively impacts indoor air quality and causes your AC system to work harder to maintain its temperature setting.
It’s a good idea to bring in a professional air conditioning installer before starting your home renovation. Custom Climate Concepts can help you decide if you need a new or additional air conditioning system, troubleshoot your vents, clean your ductwork if needed, and much more.
