HVAC Tips for Pet Owners

As a pet owner, you want to make sure your furry friend is comfortable year-round. That’s why it’s important to have a reliable HVAC system. Even though our pets are considered part of the family, their fur and dander can impact on your home’s indoor air quality and HVAC system. In this blog, Intelligent Air Services, LLC will be sharing some things you can do to help keep your pet comfortable and your HVAC system running smoothly.

Groom Your Pet

Regular grooming will help your pet stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It will also cut down on the amount of hair shed around your home, which can help keep your HVAC system from getting clogged. Removing these allergens from your pet will keep your furry friend more comfortable, but it will also improve your indoor air quality.

Clean Your Carpets

It’s no secret that your carpets and rugs collect dirt, dust, hair, and anything else tracked onto them from your shoes. However, when you add pets into the mix, you have to make sure you are vacuuming your carpets even more regularly to remove as much dander and debris as possible.

Change Your Air Filters Regularly

If you have pets, it’s important to change your air filter more often than you would if you didn’t have any pets. This will help keep your HVAC system running smoothly and prevent pet hair and dander from getting into the ductwork.

Schedule Seasonal HVAC Maintenance

Having your HVAC system serviced regularly is important for all homeowners, but it’s especially important for those with pets. This will help ensure that your system is running efficiently and that any potential problems are caught early on.

Clean Your Air Ducts

In addition to your pet’s dander collecting in your air filters, these allergens can also build up in your air ducts, which will then recirculate into the air you’re breathing in your home. Ideally, you should have your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years. However, if you have multiple pets or live in an area with high pollen counts, you may need to schedule these cleanings more often.

By following these tips, you can ensure your home will be free of your pet’s dander, which will create a comfortable environment for your entire household.
