At SJS Mechanical we certainly love our pets! In honor of National Pet Day, we would like to share three important HVAC tips that dog and cat owners can’t do without:
Change the Air Filters
Most experts recommend changing HVAC filters every three months, but when you have pets, it’s better to change them more frequently. We recommend checking your main system filter and all supply vent filters monthly. If they appear clogged or dirty, change them more often than the recommended schedule. Keeping these filters clean will maximize airflow and trap pet hair and dander, boosting your home’s indoor air quality.
Protect the Outdoor Condenser
Outdoor pets can damage condensers by urinating on the fins or clawing at the unit. Unless you can train your pets to stay away from the exterior unit, consider protecting it with a small fence or landscaping to prevent pets from gaining easy access.
Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance
It’s important to stick to a regular HVAC maintenance schedule, especially when you have pets. Call us today to talk about the benefits of an annual maintenance agreement to keep your system in optimal shape no matter the season.
Just because you have pets doesn’t mean you have to suffer from poor indoor air quality. Call SJS Mechanical at 954-294-3534 to schedule your preventive maintenance appointment with one of our trained technicians.
