Keeping your home’s HVAC system is the best way to ensure your comfort year-round. Various substances, allergens, and pollutants can slow down your HVAC and keep it from running at optimal levels. Let’s say, for the sake of our thought experiment, that you own pets. To be honest, it’s probably a fairer assessment to say that your pets actually own you. In any case, when you’ve got furry friends as part of your household unit, HVAC maintenance becomes even more critical. Let’s talk about some great tips that will keep everyone happier!
Make Bathtime a Regular Routine
Believe it or not, bathtime is actually fun. Sure, it can be a hassle to get your kids (and your fur-children) to endure it, but in the end, it’s all worth it. Dirt, dust, pollen, and other kinds of crud can cling to your pets’ fur. This unfortunate situation affects both dogs and cats. Since they are the most common household pets, you’ve got to do what you can about basic pet care. Getting rid of these nasty particulates is for the greater good.
Clean Your House More Frequently
We get it: with everything else on your plate, keeping your house clean feels like a huge obstacle. It might even be something you actively avoid. That said, cleaning your house more often goes a long way towards helping your HVAC unit continue to function smoothly. Pet hair and dander are the least of your worries. Throwing away disposable puppy pads and changing kitty litter improve air quality and diminish strong odors that can overpower you and make you feel ill. Cleaning, dusting, mopping, and vacuuming needs to happen more often than maybe twice a month.
Maintain the HVAC System Itself
If you don’t have enough know-how (or don’t feel safe doing it), turning HVAC maintenance over to the professionals is your best course of action. Pay attention to the integrity of your HVAC filters – clogged ones won’t work as well and cause your energy bills to skyrocket.
