Earning customers for life

Even though pets are part of the family, their presence can create unique challenges for Lake Mary, FL homeowners. Your furry friends may be responsible for extra dirt and dust in your home plus pet hair buildup that can clog air ducts and vents. Follow these regular maintenance tips to help keep your HVAC system running efficiently and effectively.

Change Air Filters Regularly

Pet dander and fur can quickly clog air filters, reducing the efficiency of your HVAC system. Change your air filter every one to three months, depending on how many pets live in your home, to keep pet hair, dust and dander out of the vents. If your home has a lot of pets, it may be necessary to change the filter even more often.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

Schedule a professional HVAC tune-up at least once a year to ensure that your system functions properly. During the appointment, the technician will inspect your system to identify any problems and make the necessary repairs. This can help prevent future HVAC problems and improve indoor air quality.

Clean Vents and Air Ducts

Pet dander and dirt can accumulate in your air ducts and vents over time. Have an HVAC technician clean the air ducts as needed to keep them free from pet hair, dust and debris. If they get too dirty, they can unnecessarily strain your HVAC system and reduce efficiency.

Invest in an Air Purifier

Pet dander and fur can cause serious breathing issues for people with allergies and asthma. Invest in a quality air purifier that attaches to your HVAC system to capture pet hair and other allergens to reduce pet dander in the air. This will help you maintain good indoor air quality without constantly cleaning the air filters.
