HVAC Tips for Pet Owners

Dog getting cooled down by fan
  • Replace Your Filters
    • Over time, filters become clogged with dust, pet hair, and pet dander. This blocks the airflow, which means your AC will continue to try and cool your home but with no results. This will show in your power bill. To sort this out, get in touch with your local HVAC contractor. They should be able to clean the filters out, or replace them, making sure the AC will function properly. Companies like aquariushomeservices.com, for example, should be able to help you maintain the HVAC system, ensuring your home will feel the full effects of the HVAC.
  • Keep Your Pet Clean
    • Brushing and collecting your pets’ fur before it gets the chance to scatter around your home is an easy way to prevent your filters from gathering too much lint too fast. Pet hair can also clog your air ducts, so groom your pets regularly. Whilst anyone who has been to https://petvblog.com/parrot-molting/ will know how parrots clean after themselves, other pets aren’t so self-sufficient.
  • Adjust Your Thermostat
    • Pets are safe and comfortable with a wider temperature range. You can save energy and money by setting your temperature at 65 degrees in the winter and 80 degrees in the summer when only your pets are home, but don’t neglet keeping your dog warm too. Consider purchasing a programmable thermostat to adjust the indoor temperature so that it cools the house down before peak temperatures.
  • Fence Off Your Unit
    • It is generally safe for pets to be around units, but restricting access will give you peace of mind that cats will not claw at the unit and dogs will not chew on cables and cannot urinate on the coils. Having this extra barrier will keep your pets and your unit safe.
  • Call an HVAC Professional for Maintenance
    • Regular maintenance on your system ensures that everything is thoroughly cleaned and efficient. Even if you groom your pets regularly, it is inevitable that some hair and dander will end up in your air ducts which can result in a breeding ground for bacteria. Your Norris Air technician will perform regular maintenance on your unit which will deodorize your home and keep the air fresh.
