Can Pet Hair Affect My HVAC System?

At Correy Baker Heating & Air, many of our customers are animal lovers. While you may love your pet like a family member, their dander and hair can become caught in your HVAC system and cause problems.

What Pet Hair Can Do to Your HVAC System

When your air conditioner or furnace blows air throughout your house, it also sucks up the air. Whether your pet has short or long hair, their fur and dander can build up in your air filter and clog it. When your filter is clogged, your HVAC unit needs to work harder to achieve your desired home temperature, thus increasing your monthly energy bills in the process.

Keep Them Clean

If you have one or more pets, regularly changing your air filter once every month or two is recommended. Investing in an air purifier is a great idea since these machines are made to remove dust, hair, and dander from the air.

Furthermore, you can manage the amount of dander and hair from your pet by giving him or her regular baths and brushings. The baths ensure that hair and dander remain in the tub and not the air, while brushing your pet will trap their hair in the brush and not the filter.

If you are experiencing issues with your air conditioning and heating unit despite following these steps, request a service with our Murrieta HVAC technician at Correy Baker Heating & Air today.
