3 Helpful HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners

May 24, 2022

As summer quickly approaches, the health of your HVAC system becomes even more critical. The last thing that you want is to have a malfunctioning HVAC unit and unavailable AC service on a hot, humid day.

Although there aren’t many things that threaten to disrupt the function of your HVAC unit besides overuse, pets are one of them. While we all love our pets for the joy and companionship they provide us, they can undoubtedly cause a few HVAC maintenance-related headaches. Fortunately, you can take measures to keep your heating, ventilation and air conditioning running smoothly. 

Watch the Fur

Pet fur can derail your entire HVAC system. It can clog your unit and prevent it from properly functioning. Those with pets that shed a lot will need to consider having them regularly groomed to avoid performing frequent HVAC maintenance.  

Not only will grooming your pets significantly decrease their shedding, but it will also enhance their beauty, allowing you to accomplish two goals with one straightforward task. 

Switch out Your Air Filters Frequently

While you would typically only need to change your air filters every few months after they’ve become dirty, pet owners must do so more frequently. Pet hair can quickly make its way into your air filters and clog them without much resistance. 

Failing to timely change your air filter can be disastrous. Pet hair will get into your vents and spread all over your home in no time. Dirty air filters also disrupt airflow, forcing your AC to work harder to compensate. This will lead to more expensive energy bills and increase the chances of your HVAC system breaking down, requiring further HVAC maintenance and AC repair.  

Clean Your Air Ducts and Vents

It’s almost inevitable that your pet’s hair will get into the air vents and air ducts. To prevent them from causing too much of an issue, clean and vacuum your air ducts and vents whenever possible. Keeping your air ducts and vents spotless will preserve your air quality and stop any bacteria outbreak.
