Do Pets Affect Your HVAC Performance?

If you own pets, you know that they are a huge responsibility. Well, believe it or not, so is your HVAC system. Unlike our furry friends, an HVAC system is replaceable. However, like our pets, if your HVAC system is not cared for properly, it will wind up costing you a fortune in the long run. With that being said, Washington Court House Heating & Cooling would like to offer you a few quick tips on keeping your animals and home environment coexisting together healthily.

What is the Importance of Keeping Your Animal-Friendly Home Clean?

While this one may seem obvious, the cleanliness of your home is a huge factor in how efficiently your AC unit operates, proving especially crucial when pets are residing within the home. Animals track in dirt and debris, which can accumulate along with dander from shedding if not maintained. Polluted environments harm your physical and mental health and damage your HVAC system. For example: If debris gets on either the indoor evaporator coil or the outdoor condenser coil, it will prevent these coils from being able to absorb or release heat. As a result, your AC will work even harder to try and compensate for the lack of accessible cold air, speeding up wear and tear.

How is AC Wiring a Danger to Pets?

This may surprise you unless you have personally experienced this, but puppies and dogs of all ages have been known to chew through electrical wires and other parts of AC and electrical units. Yikes! To protect your pets and AC, ensure electrical cables are hidden and out of reach to all household pets to the best of your ability. Wire chewing can burn and electrocute your animals, destroy your air conditioner, and can even start a house fire. Please take action, and protect yourselves and your loved ones.

Why is Routine HVAC Maintenance Important in Your Pet-Loving Home?

Even if you take proactive with maintaining your HVAC system throughout the year, you still need to have regular professional inspections performed to safeguard your system. A routine inspection and tune-up by a licensed HVAC technician will lessen the spread of pet dander throughout your home. Stick with the pros. Working alongside a trained HVAC service provider will help extend the life and efficiency of your system.
