There isn’t anything quite like having a furry friend to play with and keep you company at home. They’re always there for you, and they’ll give you someone to talk to without any of the snark or indifference you might get from another person.
But you still have to account for another resident of your home, and your pet requires some care to make sure your air quality doesn’t suffer. Pets don’t need the same type of care that another person does, but they need their special help in their way. Here are a few HVAC tips for Central Florida residents from the pros at American Air & Heat!
Change Your Filter – More Often than Usual
Of course, you’re supposed to change your air filter every 30 days or so. However, that’s simply the default recommended interval for everyone, and it doesn’t take specific situations into account. When you’ve got a pet, you’re going to see an increase in dirty air particles. Those build up over time, so it only makes sense to change your filter more frequently.
It might seem like an unnecessary expense, but it’ll keep your air fresher and cleaner for both you and your friend.
Work on Ductwork
Even though you don’t notice anything wrong in your everyday air quality, there could be some problems laying just beneath the surface – or rather, above it. Your ducts are the first line of defense against harmful air particles, and unless you have them professionally cleaned, they’re going to get icky.
A pet introduces a lot of contaminants that wouldn’t otherwise be present in your home, and those tend to take root in your ducts. Schedule a duct-cleaning from an indoor air quality expert you trust – like from American Air & Heat – and you’ll be breathing easy.
This one goes hand-in-hand with the previous tip. Your pet creates a unique air-quality situation that wouldn’t normally be there, but if you have your HVAC unit inspected regularly, it won’t be a problem. This is a foolproof way to ensure you and your pet enjoy clear, purified air for years to come.
On top of that, an inspection lets you know when you’ve got smaller HVAC problems that could grow into more serious issues eventually. However, since an inspection catches problems beforehand, you end up saving a significant amount of money on potential repairs.
