HVAC Care for Pet Owners

If you own a pet, you should take a few extra steps to care for your HVAC system. By remembering the following tips, you will keep your indoor air quality high, help your HVAC system operate efficiently and extend its life.

Replace Filter Regularly

It’s imperative that you regularly replace your HVAC system’s filter. The filter will quickly become clogged with hair from your pet along with the usual dust and dirt. You should replace it as often as every other month.

Vacuum Regularly

You should vacuum every other day. Furry pets shed quite a bit, and vacuuming will keep their hair from entering your home’s HVAC system. This will help extend the life of your HVAC system’s filter.

Get an Air Purifier

You can have an air purifier installed in your HVAC system. This will help anyone in your family who is allergic to your pets. There are several budget-friendly options available. At TechnoAir Heating, Cooling and Refrigeration, we can help you find and install the right whole-home air purifier for your property.

Clean Your Ducts

Even with replacing your filter and vacuuming regularly, your ductwork will collect dust, dirt, pet hair, dander and more. This residue will reduce your home’s indoor air quality over time. Having your ducts cleaned will help you breathe easier and extend the life of your HVAC system.

Groom Your Pets

Pets naturally shed their hair. You should bathe and brush your pets often to keep shedding to a minimum. Try to groom your dog outdoors so the hair you remove doesn’t end up in your HVAC system.
