HVAC Tips for Pet Owners

If you're a pet owner, you know that they can be a big part of the family. Our furry friends are just like any other family member, and it's important to take care of them. This includes providing them with a comfortable environment in which to live. However, no matter how much effort you put into caring for your pet, it’s inevitable that their fur and dander will be lingering around your house, which can have an impact on your HVAC system.

In this blog, Pro Energy Solutions will share a few HVAC tips for pet owners to ensure you and your pets are comfortable at home. Keep reading to find out!

Groom Your Pet Regularly

First, it's important to groom your pet regularly. This helps to remove any loose hair or dander that could potentially end up in your air filters. It's also a good idea to bathe them regularly, as this can help to remove any odors that might be present.

Change Your Air Filters More Often

It’s recommended that homeowners check and replace their air filters at least every three months, but if you have pets, it’s best to change your air filters more often. This is because pet hair and dander can quickly clog up a filter, reducing its efficiency.

Vacuum Your Vents and Floors

Vacuuming is most likely part of your current cleaning routine, but make sure on cleaning day you’re paying extra attention to your vents and floors. Pet dander easily accumulates around vents and on carpets, so making sure these areas are kept clean is crucial for your indoor air quality.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Finally, it's always a good idea to schedule AC maintenance with a professional company at least once per year. This helps to ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency and can help to identify any potential issues before they become major problems.

By following these tips, you and your pets will be comfortable in your home all summer long. If you’re experiencing any issues with your AC this season, give us a call at (800) 704-7340 to speak with one of our team members. We’ll be happy to help!
