How Do Pets Affect Indoor Air Quality?

How Do Pets Affect Indoor Air Quality?

For many of us, pets are more than tail-wagging door greeters or purring lap heaters. They are cherished members of our families.

They are also hair and dander machines. Pet owners wage a constant battle against blizzards of shed fur, dirt, and all the other airborne debris pets bring with them. These can create allergy flare-ups in both pets and their humans and guests. Win the war against the allergens your fur babies track with these easy steps!

Air Quality Steps You Can Take Yourself

Most people know they should change the filter in their heating and air conditioning unit regularly for optimal airflow and energy savings.

This simple action will also help you keep the allergens your pets generate under control. Change your filter when it becomes dirty. Never go longer than three months between changes.

A good cleaning routine can also help you keep on top of the air quality in your home. Vacuum your floors regularly, as well as any furniture your pets enjoy sleeping on. Sweep and mop to keep particulate matter on floors under control. Dust furniture often to prevent a buildup of allergens. Don’t forget to wash your dog and cat beds, too!

Cat owners can consider a swap to low-particulate cat litter to prevent clay dust or other substances from dirtying the air.

Engaging the Experts for Better Air Quality

Keeping pets in your home means the occasional extra step for truly clean air. Call in the experts for regular duct cleanings. Dirty ducts can enable allergens to circulate throughout your home. Professionally cleaned ducts can help to eliminate the worst allergens before they can spread to the whole house.

If your heating and cooling system is more than ten years old, you may need to consider replacing it with a new one. A new unit not only runs more efficiently, they are also better at keeping the air in your house clean and filtered. Your HVAC professional will have recommendations for the best system to suit the needs of pet owners, especially those with long-haired breeds.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
