HVAC Maintenance For Pet Owners Before The Heating Season

HVAC Alliance Experts old

If you own an HVAC system, you know how much HVAC maintenance is crucial for the good functioning and longevity of the units that make it up. This importance for HVAC maintenance is accentuated for pet owners. Pets are cute balls of love that transport with them airborne elements that can turn to be of great harm to your household and your HVAC system. However, there is a way to reduce the effect of these pet-generated harmful elements by performing regular HVAC maintenance. Since winter is soon here and you will be closed in your home with your pets for the next four to five months, we decided to help you out by listing out HVAC maintenance that will keep your family healthy, your appliances working efficiently, and your family and pet living in harmony.

HVAC Maintenance Tips For Pet Owners

Take Care of Your Filters:

The one element of your HVAC system that helps your household breathe good and healthy air is your air filters. You should thus give special attention and care to this essential part of your HVAC system. Here is how you can take care of your filters to improve the air quality of your home.

 

i. Clean or Replace your Air Filters Regularly – There are different types of air filters. Some HVAC systems use reusable air filters, while others use disposable air filters. Regardless of the types of air filters you own, you should always make sure that your air filters are clean and can perform their task properly.

If your reusable air filter is dirty, take it out and clean it using a sponge and water. You also can apply some soap to it. In case you have a dirty disposable air filter, just take it out and replace it with a new one. However, you should be careful when replacing your disposable air filter. Always make sure to use an air filter that is compatible with your HVA system and installation. If you are not sure what air filter is compatible with your HVAC system, call us at (855) 999-4417., and we will send an expert to help you remove the previous air filter, purchase it, and replace it with a new compatible air filter.

 

ii. Use High-Quality Air Filters – As with all appliances and units, air filters are of different quality. That means that you have the choice of the quality of air filters you choose to use in your home. Homes with pets often require high-quality air filters. Pets often release high quantities of pet dander. For these pet dander not to intensely affect your home, we recommend you change your standard air filter for a high-quality one. You can upgrade both your reusable and disposable air filters.

 

How to choose a high-quality air filter?

Air filter efficiency is measured using the MERV ratings. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. A standard air filter will have a MERV rating ranging from 5 to 8. These air filters can filter quite well but are not as effective as an air filter with a MERV rating between 10-12. Air filters with a MERV rating between 10 and 12 are the right filters if you are looking to reduce the allergies happening in your home.

If you have difficulties choosing an upgraded air filter for your home, remember that HVAC Alliance Expert experts are at your disposal and ready to guide you through the choice and installation of your air filters. Contact us today and let us help you get your air filter installed.

Vacuum Your House Regularly.

Removing pet dander immediately after they appear in your home is an efficient way to prevent them from reaching your HVAC system. Of course, it is impossible to remove pet dander every day – it is time-consuming and tiresome. However, you can dedicate two or three days in the week when you perform thorough whole-house vacuuming. On this day, make sure that you pass the vacuum cleaner around every corner of your home where pet dander could be hiding. Vacuum under your sofas, in the corner of the rooms, under the carpets, and behind furniture. It might sound like hard work, but it is extremely effective in reducing indoor air pollution and safeguarding the good functioning of your HVAC system.

Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance Service Twice a Year.

Although you can perform all the HVAC maintenance your home needs yourself, it is recommended you call experts to perform deeper maintenance at least once a year. Professional HVAC maintenance does not only help to oil and polish your HVAC system and make sure that it is working efficiently; it also helps to detect failures and fix them before they cause your HVAC system to break down.
