Blog | HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners


#1. Check to make sure wires are not accessible to pets. We recommend you check your furnace and A/C to make sure that there are not any visible wires. If there is, tuck them away or take precautionary measures to secure the wires. Dogs and cats find wires a great source of entertainment, but they can also get hurt by them.

#2. Securing your condenser. It is our suggestion to secure your A/C from your pet. As you know, pets are very territorial, and to show other animals their territory they mark their spots. Marking of the A/C unit can cause problems later down the road costing you time and money.

#3. Change your filters more often. We all know that pets shed, but have you thought about how that increases the amount of dirt and hair the air filter catches?  We urge pet owners to change their filters more often or even upgrade on filter type. Filters are vital to your system’s air flow. If the filter is clogged, then your system must work harder than it should, and can cause major issues for you in the future.

#4. Regular pet care can improve air quality in your home. By giving your pet regular baths and routine brushings, you can improve air quality in your home. Regular pet care will aid in reducing pet dander and hair floating in your home. Also, indoor air quality products can also enhance your air quality.

#5. Maintenance. Maintenance by a professional for your A/C and furnace is very important. Tune-ups for the A/C and furnace are just like having a tune-up done for your car. Yearly maintenance will help ensure that your system is running properly to keep you and your pets comfortable all year long.
