HVAC maintenance tips for pet owners

My dog Baloo is an irreplaceable part of my family.

He was in my wedding, he was present when my daughter was born, and he is always with us at important family events.

While I love him more than anything, owning pets means that there are a few extra things I need to do in order to keep my HVAC system running efficiently. The number one thing that pet owners need to be aware of is changing the air conditioner filter frequently. Your air conditioner filter can quickly become clogged with pet hair, dander, and other dirt and debris. When the filter becomes too clogged, it becomes difficult for your system to circulate the air efficiently throughout your home. Many HVAC professionals recommend changing your air filter every 30-60 days especially if you have pets. Another thing that pet owners should do frequently is to clean the air conditioner vents. These vents tend to accumulate lots of pet hair, and can impede the flow of air throughout your home. Removing the air conditioner vents and clearing out excess pet hair is a great way to maximise the efficiency of your HVAC system. A final thing pet owners should do from time to time is have your ductwork cleaned out. Ducts are a great place for pet hair to accumulate, which can hide a multitude of dirt and dust mites. These things can build up within your ducts and become disturbed and distributed throughout your home if not cleaned frequently. Contact your local HVAC provider today to schedule regular cleaning and find out what you can do to maximise the efficiency of your HVAC system.
