What Is Your Pet Doing to Your AC System?
Pets can be a wonderful addition to your home. They can also create more maintenance in your home, causing problems with your Charleston, SC, home’s air conditioning system. There are many ways pets can affect your AC system, but there are also ways that these effects can be prevented and maintained.
Collection of Loose Hair
Loose hair and fur from your pet can collect in your AC system, causing unnecessary dirt and debris. You may see your air filter becoming dirtier more frequently and collecting more dust over time. This can cause poor indoor air quality. This, in turn, will also cause your air conditioning system to have to work harder.
Poor Air Quality
Indoor air quality can suffer when you have pets, making breathing more difficult and triggering allergic reactions. The air could circulate with pet dander and allergens that affect you and your loved ones’ health, raising concerns for bacterial growth and allergens entering your airways. Contact us for more information about improving the air quality in your home through the installation of an air purifier.
So, What Now?
It is possible that you may face one of the above problems in your home due to a pet that sheds. In order to avoid costly repairs, it is important to perform routine maintenance on your home’s AC system to remove any excess pet hair by monitoring and changing air filters as needed which will improve indoor air quality. Contact us if you need assistance with any repairs, as well as a yearly maintenance appointment on your air conditioning system.
