If your pet is one of your favorite family members, then you have something in common with about 80 million people who love their furry friends more than anything.

Luckily, innovative technology in air purification solutions has brought us a way to actually clean our home’s air, eliminating pet hair, dander, and odors. So, you can keep the air in your home cleaner than ever, even with pets.

What You Can Do
As a homeowner, there are many things you can do regularly to keep up with the amount of pet hair and dander floating around your home.
Clean the House Regularly
Small acts such as regularly wiping down countertops, vacuuming, sweeping, and dusting make a huge difference in the amount of pet hair in your home. Rather than just spraying air freshener, cleaning will eliminate odors caused by your pet, instead of just masking them for a few hours. Cleaning also does more than just cleaning up what your pet leaves behind. It also helps keep dust, kitchen odors, and even allergens out of the air in your home. To effectively clean, wipe surfaces and mop/sweep floors weekly, and keep up with a deep cleaning every 4-6 weeks.
Keep Your Pets Groomed
Grooming your pets on a regular basis reduces shedding and decreases the amount of dander they’re leaving behind in your house. Even better, it’ll help you to cut down on time spent cleaning your home. A freshly groomed pet also means no smelly odors, so you don’t have to worry about masking OR eliminating the smell. As another added benefit, with less hair and dander in the air, your air filter will stay cleaner longer!
Change Your AC Filters
Speaking of filters, even with cleaner air, you’ll still want to check your filters regularly. Depending on the season, the number of pets you have, and your particular filter, you’ll likely need to change it every one to three months. In warmer months, you’ll want to check your filter more often, especially with multiple pets or allergy sufferers in your home.
Over time, pet hair and dander, as well as other airborne particles that get stopped by your filter begin to build up in thick layers making it difficult for air to pass through the filter. This makes your system less efficient and leads to higher utility bills. Changing your filters regularly can keep this from becoming a problem.
Our licensed technicians make specific recommendations on a home-by-home basis to ensure you’ll get the best and most efficient system for your home and budget. Whether that means changing your filters more or less often, we can make sure you have the cleanest air for your family to breathe.
Clogged air vents inside your home can also cause your system to run inefficiently. With more particles such as dust or pet hair caked around your air vents, the system will have to work harder for the air to pass through to heat up or cool down your home. When air does pass through, the particles on the vent can loosen and circulate throughout the air leaving you with unclean air in your home as well.
We realize it’s possible your air vents have never been cleaned. So, if you’re wanting to do more than just a quick dusting or vacuuming, read this article on how to clean your air vents from howstuffworks.com. If you want to go a step further, call us to have your ductwork professionally cleaned.
Although there are many important steps you should be taking yourself, it’s also important to get routine maintenance on your HVAC system by a licensed professional, like those at Environmental Comfort Systems. This ensures your system is in tip-top shape and running at peak performance all year.
Our ComfortCare Club includes pre-season check-ups twice a year where your system will be professionally inspected, cleaned, and tuned-up. By becoming a member of one of our ComfortCare Club, you’ll enjoy better energy efficiency, cleaner air, better home comfort, lower utility bills, and extended system life.
