Take these 3 Things into Consideration when Remodeling Your Home

Tax season is upon us and if you’re like a lot of homeowners, you’re waiting for that check to arrive in the mail or in your bank account, so you can make some much needed repairs on your home. While a leaky roof or damaged floor might take priority over some other repair and maintenance tasks, you shouldn’t forget about your HVAC system when you’re planning home renovations.

Use this guide to learn more about the best ways you can use your tax refund money to upgrade your HVAC system during a home remodel.

Extend Your HVAC System to New Rooms and Areas

Adding a bedroom or extra space to your existing home is a great way to get more functional space for your family. But can your existing HVAC system extend to the far reaches of this new section?

Extending your HVAC system is a smart idea to help you properly heat and cool your entire space. Check your with your HVAC contractor to see if your current model will be able to handle your square footage. If not, upgrading to a more powerful unit could be the best option for your home. In most cases, a more powerful unit will help heat and cool every part of your home faster and more efficiently as well.

Consider Adding a Zoning System

If you’re close to the right size requirement but not quite there with your current HVAC unit, adding a zoning system may be helpful. Using a relatively simple mechanical system, you’ll be able to heat and cool different parts of your home separately.

Adding a zoning system can also help you keep your bills down. After all, you may not need to heat or cool certain portions of your home at all on moderate days or on days when you don’t even go into those rooms!

Go for a Mini-Split System for Renovations

You’ve added a whole new part to your home, giving you the space you’ve always wanted. While extending your existing HVAC system is an option, some homeowners may prefer simply installing a mini-split heat pump to handle heating and cooling tasks in this new area, which are great for additions or retrofits.

One big benefit of these systems is that you’ll be able to control them independently, so you won’t have to worry about heating or cooling a space you don’t use every day. For example, a home office or workshop may not need heating or cooling around the clock if you only use it a few days each week. With a mini-split system, you’ll have self-contained heating and cooling for that area only.

Ready to take on a home remodel with your tax refund check? Use these tips to make your HVAC system perform better in your home whether you’re simply looking to upgrade or you’ve added a whole new room or section onto your home.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
