HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners

Pets are excellent companions in any home as they provide comfort and offer emotional and physical support to you and your loved ones. However, pets often shed their fur, which can fill your home with hair and dander. This can take a toll on your HVAC unit, and it can create challenges when attempting to take care of your heating and cooling system.

Proper care and maintenance for your HVAC system are vital in maintaining its functionality and durability. When you have pets in your home, you will have to take extra measures to ensure that your HVAC's performance is at it’s best. In addition to maintaining your HVAC, you want to make sure that your home has the best quality air.  

Here are some tips to help you ensure your system is working efficiently while limiting the amount of pet hair and dander that circulates throughout your home’s air.  

1. Change your HVAC filter regularly

Every homeowner needs to clean and change their HVAC filter regularly to improve indoor air quality. However, if you have a pet, you'll need to change your filter more often to prevent fur clogs. Not only will this improve the quality of your home’s air, but it can also help get rid of any pet odor. 

While it may be expensive to change and clean your HVAC filter often, it will save you a lot of money with your heating and cooling bills. 

Another great addition to any home is having an air conditioner purifier. An air conditioner purifier will help filter your home’s air even more to ensure the best quality of air. 

2. Groom your pet

Dirt and pollen can easily accumulate in your pets' fur, and these particles may cause allergies when circulated in your home. Therefore, it's essential to reduce the amount of dirt in your home.

Additionally, grooming your pets minimizes the amount of fur going into your HVAC system, thus, reducing the amount of hair your filter has to deal with. This will also benefit family members who may have allergies to pets.

3. Pet guard your condenser

Pets are nosy creatures and can tamper with anything within their reach. This is why it's vital to guard your condenser to ensure your pets do not have access to it by fencing the area. Failure to do so can result in severe damages to your HVAC system.

Pets are inevitably great companions for any household. However, they can affect the air quality and the efficiency of your HVAC system. All pet owners should take proper actions to ensure that their home’s air is clean and healthy, and upkeep their HVAC system. They should also consider investing in an air conditioner purifier!
