NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. - Sept. 14, 2019 - PRLog -- For many people, pets are considered part of the family and are kept indoors most of the time. However, there are some challenges that can arise when it comes to the HVAC system in your home. Pollutants pets can carry into the home after a nice afternoon walk and the dander they can shed directly impact your A/C and heating system because it's one giant filtration system; if those pollutants are recirculating through your HVAC system then it can wreak havoc on not only your allergies but your HVAC system as well.

By grooming your pets regularly, preferably outside the home you will also keep your pet happy and your home's air cleaner. Doing this should also mean there is noticeably less pet hair in your air filter when you change it. Dogs and cats who have longer, thicker coats should be brushed every 2 days and should be bathed every 4 weeks. You can double the time in between brushing and bathing if your pet has shorter hair.

Keeping your carpet vacuumed daily is another important step to keeping not only a clean home but also to having healthy air quality and maximizing your systems performance and longevity.

Keeping your temperature settings as moderately as possible will not only save you some money but will also reduce the amount of hair your pets shed. In the summer months dogs and cats shed their winter coat and keeping the A/C settings too low or high can have an adverse effect on how the natural shedding process takes place. The recommended setting for climates such as Florida is between 69-76 degrees during the Summer months and in the Winter months the setting should be from 68 to 72 degrees. A big mistake pet owner make is turning the thermostat up to 80 degrees when they leave the house which causes shedding to be a year-round problem – adversely impacting the air quality and air conditioning unit.

While you can do much to limit the effects of pet hair and dander on the quality of your indoor air, you'll need some specialized help now and then. That's why it's always a good idea to schedule regular HVAC maintenance, it's recommended at least twice a year.
