Most homeowners consider their household pets family and would do anything to keep them happy and healthy. So likewise, you want your household to stay safe and healthy. However, your furry friends can impact your HVAC system if not dealt with properly. If you’re struggling with pet-related issues with your HVAC system, you’re in luck! In this article, our HVAC professionals at Milford Heating & Cooling have provided a few tips to keep your family and pets safe and comfortable this summer season. 

How Often Is Your Pet Visiting the Groomers?

To ensure your home is free of pet hair and dander is to make sure your pets are regularly groomed. Doing this can stop the pet hair and dander circulation and reduces the amount of dirt and contaminants tracked around the house by your pets. Not only will your vacuum cleaner, furniture, and household benefit from this, but your air filters will as well! 

Are You Changing Your Air Filters Often?

Pet hair and dander can clog HVAC air filters and ventilation systems quickly, so homeowners should check in often and replace their air filters. If your air filters are left unchecked for too long, they can clog and cause your system to work harder to reach your home comfort levels and increase your energy costs. Our HVAC experts at Milford Heating & Cooling recommend checking in on your air filters at least once a month and developing a schedule to ensure they are being changed regularly.

Is Your Outdoor HVAC Equipment Protected?

Your outdoor unit can get into contact with many things that can damage the system, including being a place where your dog could be marking its territory. In addition, the acidity in dog urine can cause damage to your outdoor HVAC equipment, like corrosion. The best option to protect your outdoor HVAC equipment is to create a barrier or build a fence around it, with at least two feet of space between the barrier and system.

By using these tips and implementing them in your daily routine, your home, family, and pets are guaranteed to have a safe and comfortable summer.
