HVAC Tips for Pet Owners

While our pets are often our pride and joy and even treated like members of our family, they do come with some undesirable side effects. Some of these include allergies, extra housework, and additional stress on our HVAC units. We’ve made a guide to help your HVAC units out while also keeping your pets comfortable, happy, and healthy.

Keeping your pets well groomed is one way to limit the amount of fur and dander that is circulating throughout your home. This is because when your pets get groomed, all of the loose fur and dander is washed off of them.

So not only will keeping your pets well groomed make them more comfortable and keep them looking good, but it will also be beneficial to your HVAC unit and your household’s residents!


Even with regular grooming, there will still be some fur and dander that makes its way from your pets to your carpets or air ducts. It’s because of this that keeping your home clean is so important. The tasks you should keep on your chore list should include:

  • Vacuuming

  • Dusting

  • Sweeping

  • Washing linens and rugs

Essentially, anywhere your pet is permitted to go should be one of the areas you focus on when cleaning your home.


One of the most important steps you can take towards keeping your home clean and rid of pet fur and dander is by regularly replacing your air filters. In a home with only 2 or 3 people living there, no pets, and no smoking, you should only need to change your air filters once every six months. However, if any of these factors change, then, you should start replacing your air filters every 2 or 3 months.
