The HVAC system of any home in The Naples, Bonita Springs, or Marco Island, FL, areas is very important as it helps to ensure the property will remain comfortable all year. Due to this, maintaining your system is critical. For those who have pets in their home, there are additional maintenance and care tips that should be followed to properly protect your HVAC system.
Replace Filters Regularly
One important tip to follow when you want to protect your home’s HVAC system is to replace your filters regularly. All responsible HVAC owners should aim to replace their air conditioning and heating filters at least once every few months. However, those who have pets that shed will find their filters will fill up faster.
Pet owners should check their filters regularly and replace them when needed, which could be as frequently as every month. Of course, this depends on your individual pet and their shedding cycles.
Clean Ducts and Vents
When you have a pet that sheds, it is possible for pet hair to get into the ducts of your home. If there is pet hair, it could reduce airflow and air quality. To ensure that your ducts are clean and clear, you should have them cleaned regularly. The team at Accurate Comfort Services can help anyone in the Naples area with their duct and vent cleaning service needs.
Keep Pets Away from Units
You should also do your best to keep your pets away from your heating and cooling units. Not only will this help to keep their fur away, but it could prevent them from scratching the units or kicking dirt into the compressors. You can do this by closing off the indoor and outdoor units so that pets have no access to them.
If you have a pet in the Naples, FL, area, taking the additional steps necessary to clean your home of pet fur and dander is very important. One part of your property that could be affected is your home HVAC system.
