Save Energy and Money with HVAC Tips for Pet Owners

Being a pet owner is one of the greatest joys of life. Their unconditional love can be brightness in even the dimmest of days. One thing that you may not be thinking about is how your pet can affect your home’s HVAC system. Here are some HVAC tips to help your family and your beloved Duke or Daisy have a healthy life and save a lot of hassle in repairs or potential health issues.

Duct work

The dander from your pet can get into the ductwork of your home. Having your ductwork cleaned regularly by a professional can remove these allergens and keep your family healthy and your system running efficiently.

Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat is helpful to regulate the temperatures throughout the day in your home. It’s important to keep in mind that pets don’t really notice too many changes in temperature. They are equipped to cool or warm themselves properly. So keep your settings to where the humans prefer.

Air filters

Changing your air filter regularly is important to the air quality in your home and the efficiency of your HVAC unit. If you have pets that produce a lot of pet dander changing your air filters can also help. Changing your filter on a regular basis will help anyone in your home with allergens including your pet.

Avoid drafts

Be sure to keep pets that reside in tanks or cages a way from areas that are drafty. You should also make sure that the air blowers are not anywhere near a pet cage.

Pet doors

Doggie doors are convenient however if they are not sealed properly you could be losing cool air regularly. Your system will run inefficiently if your doggie door is not sealed properly.

Air purification system

A professional HVAC technician can install this directly on your homes HVAC unit to cut down the allergens and make a difference in your air quality.
