For many households, pets are a source of joy and endless entertainment. Sadly, they’re also a source of pet dander, allergens and fur, and these foreign substances can wreak havoc on your home’s HVAC system. The good news is that there are ways to keep your pets happy and content while also keeping your heating and cooling units intact.
Comfort Zone of North Florida Inc., your preferred heating and air conditioning repair company, shares how you can maintain your HVAC system even with pets around.
Regular Bathing and Grooming
Even indoor pets can accumulate pollen and dirt in their fur. The best way to reduce or eliminate these allergens is to give your fur babies regular baths and groom them before their fur grows too long or thick. Regular bathing and grooming will not only keep your pets clean and healthy, it will also make your HVAC system easier to clean and maintain.
Maintain HVAC Equipment
The average homeowner should replace their air filters every three months. However, you’ll need to replace your filter more often if you have pets at home. Don’t forget about your outdoor unit, as pets can damage it with their urine. You can build a barrier around your outdoor unit, but as your HVAC contractor would advise, don’t put it too close to the unit to allow for proper air circulation.
Combine regular pet grooming with regular house cleaning to lessen the strain on your vents and ductwork. Vacuuming and sweeping the house will improve your indoor air quality, making the air you breathe cleaner and fresher.
