Routine air conditioning maintenance is a must to keep your family in good health, as well as your furry friends. Your HVAC system’s role is to provide clean air for all, as well as ensure that your home’s environment is comfortable. In this post, Superior Air shares four HVAC tips that are helpful for homeowners with furry pets.
Keep your pets groomed. Make sure that your pets are bathed and brushed regularly. This will help reduce the shedding of hair and dander indoors. It’s best to brush them outside to make sure that the hair doesn’t get into your house. Be sure to clean up any hair that does get inside.
Clean and vacuum regularly. The shedding of pet hair is inevitable even if you brush them regularly. To prevent it from entering your HVAC system, vacuum and dust your home. This will also increase the efficiency of the system. Be warned, however: don’t dust your house with the HVAC system on. This will just contribute to dust particles flying through the air and being sucked into your system.
Change your filters. You should change or clean your filters regularly. These filters should be cleaned or changed once a month, even if you don’t have pets. Otherwise, they won’t adequately block the dust from entering your HVAC system. If your system is struggling even after changing the filters, you may want to look into air conditioning repair or maintenance to check if there are problems.
Protect your outdoor unit. If your outdoor unit is accessible to your pets, they may end up scratching or urinating on it. This can cause damage to your HVAC system in the long run. Be sure to block their access to your outdoor unit, and don’t forget to check if you’re blocking the unit’s airflow. Your HVAC technician can help you map the system’s flow of air so you don’t end up blocking it.
