For many of us, we consider our pets to be as important to us as our family. We develop strong bonds with them and that make us often overlook the negative consequences that come along with owning them. For instance, they track dirt and grime into our homes, and shed their hair, everywhere. This can not only be a hassle as far as clean up is concerned, it can also cause problems with the quality of air in our homes.
If you live in a home with a pet, listed below are some tips on how you can keep your air quality high, while coexisting with your furry friends!
Regularly Changing Your Air Filter
While every breed of animal is different, a common trend that our mammal pets share is that they shed like crazy! In the summertime this problem tends to be exaggerated, filling our homes with tumbleweeds of animal fur. Whenever our pets shed, we are not just faced with their fur, we also are being exposed to pet dander. A lot of this gets caught up in your homes air filters! This is why it is important, for maximum air flow and air quality, to ensure you are checking and changing out your air filter regularly!
Check Your Air Ducts
The air ducts play a vital role in maintaining the temperature of your home! These ducts make up the pathways the air travels throughout your home to deliver tempered air. If these pathways are congested with pet hair and animal dander, you are are not receiving high quality air and may even be inhibiting the flow of air throughout your space.
Do not sacrifice your air quality to share your space with a furry friend! Instead, seek regular HVAC maintenance from the professionals at Autumn Air! We will keep your system functioning and your air quality high!
