HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners
We all love our furry friends! But with our indoor and outdoor pets we must take extra care doing maintenance on HVAC units!
1) The importance of keeping it clean
Dogs and cats shed lots of hair and create dander. Dander can and will cause unhealthy living environment if not tended to. Did you know that pet dander is the leading cause of allergies? Keep your furry friends bathed and groom on a regular basis. As well as vacuuming, dusting, and maintaining your living space. Always vacuum (with the hose) your vents to prevent hair clogs.
2) Maintaining your air filter
Changing your air filter is a must to keep your system functioning properly. With pets in the home, it so imperative to change the filter once a month. Pet hair and dander will be filtrated through your filter, causing it to clog up more often, and even shortening the life of your HVAC system if your filter is not change frequently. Also, always check for exposed wires. Your furry friend may think that is a “chew toy” and can cause some major damage.
3) Outside Pets?
Do you have an outdoor pet, or a furry friend who can get close to your condenser? Take the following steps into consideration: Try putting up a barrier around your condenser unit. This will protect your unit from your furry friend marking his territory or even damaging your condenser unit with his teeth or claws! Another benefit of putting a barrier up around your unit is it will protect it from grass shavings when cutting the grass!
4) Consider an air purification system
Different types of indoor air cleaners are better at targeting different types of contamination. Having an air purification system can eliminate things like pollen, pet dander, dust mites and mold spores, so if these are the things you want to target, an air purification system might be right for you.
