Just as it’s important to keep up with any siding, roofing or chimney repairs you might need, taking care of your HVAC system is also an essential part of any home maintenance routine. These days, you can sign up with your local contractor for a regular maintenance agreement to make things even easier. These plans offer great convenience for homeowners who want to avoid missing out on important inspections, repairs and tune-ups their units might need.
Unfortunately, having a stranger come into your home to check on your heating and cooling system can be challenging if you have pets around. The presence of a new person coming inside might scare your pets, causing misbehavior that could lead to delays in what should be a quick and easy process. Let our HVAC professionals at Hader share some tips with you about how to perform HVAC maintenance when you’ve got furry little friends running around.
Pet Hair Problems
Dogs and cats shed hair almost constantly. Pet fur and dander often get caught up by your HVAC filters, which means you’ll have to clean or change your filters more frequently. Just like clogged gutters, clogged filters can cause performance problems; in this case, with your air circulation. Moreover, they’re often not as effective at keeping pet hair out of your indoor air. Make sure to check your filters frequently, at least once every 30 days, and clean or change them as needed.
Keeping Your Pets Under Control
When you have technicians around, it’s best to keep all your pets secured in one room to keep them out of the way. Most routine maintenance procedures don’t take all day. If you have another person at home with you, one of you could even take your dogs out for a walk while the other stays at home with the HVAC technician.
Seal Your Ducts
The last thing you want is to have your pet’s hair and dander circulating throughout your entire home. Ask your local contractor for duct sealing services to ensure that fur, hair and dander are kept under control within your HVAC system.
