Remodeling Your Home? Don’t Forget the HVAC System.

Written by: Metro Air

Remodeling your home is a huge undertaking! It requires planning, paying attention to details, and some creativity, too. If you are about to embark on a home remodel, remember to keep your home’s heating and cooling system in mind. Home remodels are a great time to replace your system or even change your system completely. Many people find that heat pumps are a great option.

Adding ductwork for a traditional heating and cooling system will impact your budget by increasing the cost of your remodel. But with a ductless heat pump system, you don’t need ductwork. Not to mention, they are affordable, energy efficient, and provide both heating and cooling in one system. That translates to incredible convenience and saved money in utility costs each year.

Home ductwork gets dusty and dirty over time. That material then transfers through the ducts into your home, which negatively impacts asthma or allergies. But because ductless systems don’t rely on ductwork in your home, less contaminants will make their way inside. This helps with better indoor air quality.

Whether you’re just putting an addition onto your house or doing a full home remodel, a heat pump is easy to add into your remodeling plans. It can be installed quickly, so you can move onto the other parts of the remodel that take longer.

Your remodel can be exactly how you envisioned it! And once it’s done, you will be able to sit back and enjoy the comfort of your new home – at whatever temperature you want. Our outstanding team of licensed heating and cooling experts at Metro Air Heating & Cooling will help you decide which Bryant heat pump is right for your newly remodeled space.
