Smart Heating and A/C maintenance tips for pet owners
My dog Maloo is an irreplaceable member of my family.
- He was in my ceremony, he was present when my child was born, and Maloo is consistently with us at most important family events.
While I prefer Maloo more than anything, owning pets means that there are several extra steps I need to take in order to keep my Heating and A/C system running efficiently. The number 1 thing that pet owners like me need to be aware of is decreasing the air conditioner filter frequently. Your air conditioner filter could abruptly become jammed with pet hair, dander, and other dirt and debris. When the filter becomes too blocked, it becomes hard for your system to circulate the air efficiently throughout your home. Many pro Heating and A/C techs propose decreasing your air filter every 30 to 60 afternoons especially if you have pets. Another thing that pet owners should do frequently is to wash out the air conditioner vents. These vents tend to accumulate lots of pet hair, and can impede the flow of the air throughout your home. Removing the air conditioner vents and clearing out excess pet dander is a great way to maximise the efficiency of your Heating and A/C system. A final thing pet owners need to do from time to time is get your HVAC duct cleaned out. Ducts are a great locale for pet hair to accumulate, which can hide a vast multitude of dirt and dust mites. These things can build up within your ducts and get disturbed and distributed throughout your house if not cleaned frequently. Contact your local Heating and A/C provider ASAP to schedule official cleaning and find out what you can do to improve the efficiency of your Heating and A/C system.
