Homeowners with pets have significant increases in the responsibility of care and maintenance where it concerns the HVAC system in your home. On the air quality you breathe in your home, your pet has a direct impact. It is important to follow these recommendations to secure your health as you share your indoor comfort with your furry friends. Considering this, we at Hal Mechanical would like to offer some suggestions to better protect your HVAC system and your health.
Bathe Your Dogs Often
Due to the pollen and dirt can accumulate in your pets’ fur, it is in your better interest to bathe the pets regularly. These particulates are a primary source of potential allergens and are easily circulated in your home and may reduce air quality. Be sure your pet is kept clean to avoid performance issues and health risks.
House Cleaning to Prevent Dust
Even when you train a pet, you can’t ensure they stay in one area of the home. As a result, the pet hair and dander are almost in every corner of your house. On a regular basis, vacuum clean carpets and furniture and mop the floor.
HVAC Tune Up Maintenance
Regularly, the HVAC system requires maintenance to manage its performance. To ensure the HVAC system is clean and running smoothly, your care as well as professional services are required. The services and care can help better manage the pet fur/dander that builds up on the equipment, but it also minimizes the damage it can have.
High Quality Air Filters
There are many types of HVAC filters. Should you be planning to have a pet, opt for an HVAC filter with a high MERV rating for more efficient function. A MERV rating of 8 and higher of the AC filter is essential for homes that cater to pets. It filters airborne allergen including contaminants and pollutants.
Air Duct Sealing
Leaks can easily allow pet hairs and dander to enter the air ducts. Your air duct transports the air from your HVAC system across the home. To help control leaks, have the air ducts inspected regularly.
Shield Exposed Wires & Cables
Your pet, especially juveniles, find wires as they look to play. It can cause a problem in your unit as well as your safety. Keep wires hidden and out of reach of your playful pets to avoid risks.
Cover Outdoor AC Condenser Unit
It is best to cover the condenser units. Despite being located outdoors, your pet can find its way there and may damage the fins. Urinating on the unit can be a potential issue, especially concerning dogs. Be certain to put a fence or any barrier to prevent such circumstances. What you need is an extra sense of responsibility and care for your HVAC system.
