According to air conditioning service providers, an HVAC replacement project is a home improvement task that requires a significant amount of money to complete. Therefore, it’s understandable if homeowners want the project to stay in line with their budget. Unfortunately, there are some instances when your HVAC professional may uncover issues around your home that will have to be repaired immediately, resulting in a higher overall cost, such as:
Your home’s wall studs are incredibly susceptible to rot in moisture-heavy areas of your home, like the basement where your HVAC system is located. Unfortunately, this decay is’t very easy to detect, and your contractor may only spot this issue when they’ve removed the drywall. Once they find rotten wall studs around your home, you’ll need to have them replaced immediately to maintain your home’s energy efficiency and structural integrity..
If you have air conditioning ducts that back up to your wall or ceiling, the drywall is usually cut to fit its outer edges. However, if your new HVAC unit is in a different shape or style, you may have to repair the drywall cuts made for the previous unit in order to make the new HVAC system fit, resulting in additional expenses.
When having your older HVAC unit replaced with a newer model, it’s possible that your home may not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. With this in mind, your AC repair experts will have to perform a few electrical upgrades to ensure that your home can keep up with the new unit’s electrical demands. However, this can add to your replacement project’s overall costs, so if you have any budget concerns, be sure to bring them up with your professional.
Ductwork is an important part of your home, as it delivers warm or cooled air to different rooms and areas of your home, meaning proper ductwork is essential for your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. Unfortunately, it’s also very delicate.
