Posted: July 26, 2021
As a pet owner, you know your pet is a beloved and cherished member of the family. Pets can bring years of memories that will last a lifetime, peace in difficult times, and companionship for children and adults. However, we all know that our beloved pets can also shed excessive hair and pet dander.
If excessive pet hair/dander is left unchecked for even a short period of time it can lead to HVAC issues. Clogged air filters and vents can impede the flow of air from the central air conditioning system of your home causing it to work at a lower efficiency and even have an impact on your indoor air quality in severe enough cases. Here are a few tips to keep your HVAC unit running at peak efficiency as a pet owner:
- Pet Grooming - Some pet breeds are known more than others for shedding. Grooming is essential whether or not the breed you have sheds at a higher rate, but if you do have a breed that sheds more it's important to groom more frequently. Frequent grooming will help to improve your indoor air quality and the longevity of your AC system.
- Change AC Filters Frequently - Changing the AC filter frequently is another simple, yet important step as a pet owner. Pets shed hair and dander, when the AC filter is left untouched and it accumulates dust, pet hair, and pet dander, it can lead to issues such as lowered air quality, lower efficiency of the unit due to it taking longer to cool the area.
- Clean the Air Vents & Ducts - Just as failing to change the air filters frequently can lower the efficiency of the unit, so cannot cleaning the air vents and air ducts regularly. Excessive pet hair and dander can clog the vents quicker than you may think. You’d also be surprised at the amount of hair and dander that can make its way to the ducts.
