How to Maintain your Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning System

Owning a pet comes with a cost, and we are not talking money, but rather pet hair and dander all over your home. Once you do purchase a cat or a dog, the vacuum cleaner becomes your best friend, while lint rollers a crucial part of your everyday life. Furthermore, we suggest getting used to having a couple of stray hairs from your furry friend every time you leave your home. 

While you are in a constant battle with the hair that you can visually see, have you stop to wonder about the air you are breathing? Being a proud pet owner comes with a lot of responsibility. Not only you have to take proper care of your pet, but also you have to take care of your HVAC system too. HVAC is an abbreviation from Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning and owning a pet can take a toll on it due to their fur and dander. 

To help you with maintaining the air in your home clean while owning a pet, we`ve created a shortlist with tips on how to maintain your HVAC system properly.

Groom your Pets

First things first, if you want to reduce the hair remaining stuck in your HVAC system, you should preventively groom your pet daily. This prevents shedding on a long-term basis and reduce the fur and dander, which causes problems in your system.

To put it in the simplest way possible; brushing and bathing equals eliminating the microscopic nuisances, and bigger particles that cause your HVAC system to bog down. 

Change Air Filters

One huge part of maintaining your HVAC system is regularly changing the air filters, especially if you own a pet. If you don’t maintain your air filters, the common contaminants such as pet hair, airborne particles, dust, and fur will invade your home, worsening allergies instead of staying to the filter.

On the other hand, if you change these filters frequently, not only you will breathe much healthier air, but you won’t be scared to open energy bills.

HVAC Maintenance and Care

Last but not least, do not forget to maintain the HVAC system itself. Schedule air conditioning maintenance service and consider replacing your AC unit if it’s older than 10 years.
