HVAC Maintenance Tips for Pet Owners


A pet can be an amazing thing, and you may not think your dog or cat can impact your HVAC system, but that’s not the case. You also want to make sure that your pet is safe from your HVAC system as well.

We all want to keep our pets safe, and exposed wires could be dangerous for puppies and kittens that like to chew on things. Make sure to tuck away all exposed wires.

A little extra effort is needed to keep your HVAC system running smoothly if you have a dog or cat in the house. Like any dust or dirt in the home, pet hair can collect in air filters and clog the system. Clogged air filters means a less efficient HVAC system. You may need to step up your housekeeping skills to ensure your home is clean, and check on air filters frequently to make sure they are clear of pet hair.

If your home feels drafty, make sure that your doggie door and all your outside doors are properly weather sealed. Otherwise, you are letting in a lot of cold air, even when you and your pet aren’t using the door.

You will also want to get regular maintenance checks on your HVAC system to make sure it’s giving you and your pets the best service possible. You can talk to our contractors today about any of your HVAC needs.

If you follow these tips, your pet and HVAC system will be safe and things will run more smoothly and efficiently.

Of course, any specialized work should be left to a professional. We recommend getting a SMART technician to help you.

New Year’s Resolutions for Your HVAC System


The New Year can be a great time to make some changes regarding your HVAC system. Whether you’re looking to keep your air cleaner, save money or have your system work as efficiently as possible, here are some tips for you.

It may be a good time to install a programmable thermostat.

These thermostats can save you money, and allow you to better control your heating and cooling system uses. You can pre-program everything on the thermostat or your phone to allow for cooler temperatures when you’re not home during the day, ensuring that you get the most bang for your buck.

Write down reminders to check your air filters each month.

Air filters easily become covered with dust and dirt, which lowers the air quality in your home. Dirty filters also make your furnace or air conditioner work harder and run longer, which leads to more wear and tear on the system. Check the air filters every month and replace when necessary, and you will find the air quality in your home is much better and your system runs more efficiently.

Schedule routine HVAC maintenance.

You can contact us at any time and our contractors will make sure that your system is in good condition and they will be able to catch any problems early on so they can be fixed.
