Furry friends make the best home companions.
Fur and dander, on the other hand, can aggravate allergy symptoms while also affecting HVAC systems.
The regular cleaning and vacuuming of your intake vents can help keep these undesirable elements out, but there are other, better ways to maintain high-quality indoor air and keep your heating and cooling system in top shape. Routine bathing and grooming are necessary to keep your pets clean and comfortable. This will reduce the amount of fur, hair, and dander that will be dispersed throughout your home. Don’t forget to keep them comfortable as well. Be sure to factor in the comfort of your pets when programming your thermostat for the hours you’re away. Replace your HVAC filter regularly. Filters in HVAC systems catch pet dander and fur, as well as other contaminants. As a result, they become dirty over time, which decreases airflow and compromises indoor air quality. When this issue is addressed right away, it can help prevent early system failures that require immediate heating and air conditioning repair. Check your air filter monthly and clean or replace it as necessary. If you have pets, you should do this every 30 days. Purchase an air purifier to ease some of the strain on your HVAC air filter. Look for one with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter that can remove up to 99% of pet dander from the indoor air. As well as preventing allergies and respiratory ailments, it also removes other airborne pollutants like dust, pollen, and mold.
