Pet Owners: How to take care of your HVAC

By Fahrenheit AC /

Owning a pet is a wonderful experience. They offer unconditional love. Owning a pet is a major responsibility and you should know how this affects your HVAC. Here are some tips for ensuring your home is a safe and loving environment for your pet and your family.

Pet Hair

It’s important to keep your pet clean and groomed. When it comes to the quality of your air, pet dander is a major task to focus on. Pet dander, specifically from cats and dogs, is a major contributor to allergies. Regularly bathing and brushing your pet will improve the air quality in your home. Dusting and vacuuming your home on a regular basis will also reduce the amount of pet hair that can cause a clog.


Unwanted Chew Toys

Check your HVAC system for any exposed wires. These can become unwanted chew toys for your pet. It’s important to be extra vigilant when your pets are kittens or puppies, but you should keep this in mind throughout their adult life as well.


Change your HVAC air filter

Time and time again, you read about the importance of changing the air filter regularly. It’s especially crucial when you have a pet. With a pet, you will have to change your air filter more often. Make sure to check on your air filter at least once a month to see if it’s clogged with hair or extremely dirty. A clogged air filter means more expensive utility bills and could affect the health and longevity of your HVAC system.


Make sure to follow these helpful tips to keep your home fresh and clean. Having pets is a rewarding experience. It’s crucial to ensure to follow the simple tips above to make your home an enjoyable environment for everyone.
