HVAC Info You Need: Pet Edition

October 30, 2023 | Blog

Everyone loves playing with their dogs and cats around the house, but have you been safeguarding your HVAC system from the effects of their hair? Cats and dogs regularly shed, leaving fur and pet dander around your house. While this isn’t news to any pet owner, many don’t know about the impact that it can have on your ventilation systems.

As pet dander gets sucked up into your vents, it can impact indoor air quality and leave odd smells around your house. Thankfully, Heblon Heating and Air Conditioning is here to ensure that your best friend doesn’t leave any mess around your home!! By taking care of your HVAC system, you can have peace of mind and focus on spoiling your pet instead of cleaning.

HVAC Tips For Pet Owners

Caring for your heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems is an important part of keeping your air clean. There are a few things you can do to keep your space clean from pet dander.

Get Air Conditioning Tune-Ups

It’s important to regularly maintain air conditioning in homes with pets. There are many reasons for this. Pets shed fur and dander, which can get into the HVAC system and make indoor air quality worse. Regular maintenance helps improve air quality for residents and their pets by cleaning or replacing air filters, which remove allergens from the air.

Also, pet hair and dander can clog air filters, making the HVAC system work harder. This lower efficiency leads to higher energy bills and strains the system, possibly shortening its lifespan. A professional tune-up ensures your system is in good shape and can keep you and your pet comfortable.

Check Your Indoor Air Quality

You should regularly check your indoor air quality if you have a pet. Pets, especially those with fur or feathers, can release allergens and particles when they shed. Additionally, their saliva and urine can emit odors that may affect your home. By regularly checking the air quality indoors, you can find out about any problems before they worsen.

These issues could be pet allergens, dust or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). By being proactive, you can make your home healthier for you and your furry friends. Air purifiers, improving ventilation and keeping things clean will all boost your IAQ. It will also reduce health effects, such as breathing problems and allergies.

Keep Your Ductwork Sealed

When you have a pet, sealing your ducts can improve indoor air quality and HVAC efficiency. When pets shed hair and dander, it will circulate through your home’s air ducts. If the ductwork has leaks or gaps, they can draw in additional contaminants from attics, crawl spaces or other unclean areas.

Sealing your ducts keeps these pollutants at bay, making the air in your home cleaner and healthier. Moreover, sealed ducts help your home systems run more effectively, which can lead to cost savings on your energy bills. It also reduces wear and tear on the machinery, extending its lifespan.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.
