Keeping pets in our home demands extra costs, time and care but for all animal lovers having a pet is what makes a home a home. But knowing how to take care of your home with pets around goes hand in hand, this also includes HVAC systems which can be neglected when it comes to pet care and maintenance.

Here are some tips and tricks that will help you keep your climate control system at peak performance and also keep your pet safe:

Keeping Fur, Dander, and Dirt Out of Your System

Fur, dander and dirt that your HVAC system gets exposed to with dogs, rabbits, cats and other furry animals in the house could be bad news. Air ducts become clogged and contaminated with the extra debris. It is important to bathe and brush your pet no matter the amount of fur they shed. This minimizes the amount of debris that infiltrates your home. Regular vacuuming of your carpet and dusting off your furniture on a regular basis makes sure the stray hairs, dirt and fur do not make their way into your HVAC system. An advantage of having pets around is that your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard when you are not around. This is because pets can handle a larger temperature range.

Replace Your Filters Regularly

The best way to keep your HVAC system performing at its best is by replacing the filter on a regular basis. Small particles like fur and dander get caught in the filters blocking airflow through the vents. This enhances the energy efficiency of your home,

Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

Last but not least, get your air ducts cleaned. It is a complicated process that should be handled by a professional HVAC repair and maintenance company. Proper maintenance includes air duct cleaning, repair and services that are essential for your HVAC system. This keeps the system performing at its best now and well into the future whether you have pets or not.

For all pet owner’s safety for their beloved pets is always a top priority, but it is also important to take good care of your home including your HVAC system. The best way to maintain your unit’s peak performance is to ensure you have a highly trained technician on call. Maintenance involves repairing, cleaning and maintaining air conditioning units. Technicians solve problems that homeowners face with pets in their homes.
