HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners

Our pets are our family, they bring us joy, companionship and love. However, with the wagging tails, playing and countless petting, pets can cause a few issues with air quality in regards to your HVAC system. Here are some HVAC maintenance tips to consider if you own pets.

Changing The HVAC Filter
Pets are like family, however, they shed like crazy. If you have any furry critters taking up occupancy in your home, then you’ll have to change the filter more often. Cat and dog hair, as well as dander, gets everywhere in your home- including the air filter! It’s also important to note that depending on the season, you may need to change the filter more often. For example, animals tend to shed more when the weather is hotter.

Clean and Seal Ducts
The air ducts main purpose is to transport the air throughout your home. Now, if the air ducts are dirty and filled with pet dander, this can make it relatively difficult to breathe. This is because the pet dander will continuously circulate throughout the air and your home. Cleaning air ducts regularly can remove the dust, dander and debris and keep it from circulating throughout your home. 

Lastly, if there are gaps and/or crack in your air ducts m be sure to get them fixed. All that unwanted dander and dust can easily make its way into the ducts. Thus, the pet hair and dander will circulate throughout the home. Once these cracks are sealed, this will help stop the dander and dust entering the air ducts.
