Pets can be a very special addition to your home and add some energy and happiness. However, along with the joys of owning a pet come some added responsibilities and considerations in your home.
Over a long time, pets can affect your HVAC system and prevent it from working efficiently.
Here are a few ways that this can happen and what you can do in your home to keep your pets safe and your HVAC system working well.
Keep your house clean from pet hair
Both dogs and cats are known to shed hair, and some breeds shed a lot more than others. Keeping your house free of hair is important in ensuring your HVAC system works to its best potential. A lint roller is a great, easy tool that can help you remove all that hair in a jiffy.
The dangers of pet dander
Where there’s pet hair, there’s pet dander. Pet dander are flecks of skin that fall from the bodies all all sorts of pets, not just limited to cats and dogs. This dander can provoke specific skin reactions to people who are allergic to a particular trigger, and some of these reactions can be quite severe.
There are some simple solutions you can take that will ensure your house will stay clean and no pet dander will end up in your HVAC system and cause a future reaction.
- Keep your pets constantly clean
- Regular vacuuming and sweeping the floor
- Cleaning pet dander from furniture and clothes
- Clean your HVAC system regularly
Keep your system out of your pet’s reach
It should be a pretty logical precaution to keep all your appliances out of your fluffy friend’s reach. This is true for HVAC systems too. If there are exposed wires or leads around they could be chewed on by your pet and not just cause major damage to your HVAC system but also really harm your pet.
To keep your HVAC system and your beloved pets safe, make sure you protect and insulate all your wires well.
Protect your outside unit
While HVAC units that are under your floors or in the ceilings are protected from your pet’s reach, your outside unit may not. If your pet has free reign of your backyard, you need to consider protecting your outdoor unit. It’s best practice to ensure that your pet has no way of accessing or going near your heating unit.
Pets can damage your HVAC units by chewing at the electric wires or urinating on the system. But not only does this do damage to your HVAC system, but it also isn’t good for your beloved friend.
Pets can get seriously burned and injured if they get too close to heating units. To stop this from happening to your companion, you can block off access to your unit with a gate.
