Protect Your HVAC System from Remodeling Dust and Debris
A remodeling project can promote your business and make customers more comfortable in their shopping experience. However, during a remodel project you should take extra care to protect your vital HVAC system from the dust and debris remodeling causes.
A running system and open vents allow dust and debris to be pulled into the system. Dust not only coats the coils and impairs performance, it creates friction in moving parts causing wear, and can impair electrical contacts. Not protecting the system can result in AC repair in Katy, Texas. The easiest way to protect the system is leave it turned off during t
he remodel and duct tape the registers closed from the dust. If this isn’t possible tape up the registers in the affected area. When remodeling will affect the layout or size of a space, it’s always best to talk to your HVAC contractor before remodeling begins. This can prevent hot or cold spots affecting your employees or customers’ comfort.
Reducing the Effets of Construction Dust
Construction dust during a remodel seems to get into other areas, despite your best efforts. Fiberglass filter pads are an option for wall vents that won’t break the bank. Unfortunately, they are not a good solution for floor vents because debris is heavier on the floors and the filter will not keep all particles from entering. Taping floor vents off is still the best solution.
Finally, during construction change the air filter every week or two during the project. Once the project is complete, contact Cypress Heating and Air Conditioning for an HVAC inspection to ensure your efforts were successful in keeping the system clean. Otherwise, the need for AC repair in Katy, Texas may result.

The question business owners often ask is, when is it time to replace the unit? When you are contacting your HVAC technician several times a year for AC repair in Katy, Texas it would be more cost effective to just replace the air conditioning system.
