When you have a pet in your home, it’s hard to put into words the amount of love and affection they bring into your family. However, with that love and affection, come some things that are less than desirable. The pet dander that is probably present is one of them. Even if you are vigilant in cleaning up after any hair or dander that you see, it can get stuck inside your ductwork, air filters and other aspects of your HVAC system and cause problems. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to share some tips for pet owners to keep their AC running smoothly this summer.
Dust & Clean House Often
Most pet owners know that it takes a little extra cleaning to keep up with cleaning up after your furry friends. However, for the sake of your HVAC system, it is extremely important. You need to be vacuuming, dusting and sweeping regularly to ensure the pet dander is under control and not making its way into your ductwork and your HVAC system. One area that is often overlooked, but important to keep clean is your ceiling fan. The pet dander accumulates on the fan blades and will disperse throughout your house when you turn your fans on. Don’t forget to dust those blades.
Groom Pets to Control Pet Hair & Dander
One thing that can be helpful in keeping your home dander free is pet grooming. Not only will your pets look and smell better, but your home will as well. Your short haired pets need to be brushed often, but if you have a long haired pet, you need to have them professionally groomed to help you keep up with the dander issue.
Change Air Filters More Often
Your air filter in your HVAC system will need to be changed much more frequently when you have pets vs homes that do not pets. The filter in your HVAC system is there to remove particulates from the air and keep it out of your system. Check the filter regularly to make sure it doesn’t need to be replaced.
Protect Outdoor Condenser AC Unit
If you have dogs, it isn’t uncommon for them to urinate on the outdoor AC unit. They may also scratch at the unit which can cause problems and keep it from working well. These two things can lead to expensive repairs to your system. Make sure your dogs don’t have access to the outdoor unit at all.
