Pets Can Make an HVAC System Work Overtime

Pets Can Make an HVAC System Work Overtime


When they shed, fur, hair or dander can make its way into the home’s ventilation system, clogging the components. This can force an air conditioner or furnace to work harder to condition and circulate the air. The result could be a decrease in energy efficiency, lifespan of parts or the entire unit and indoor air quality.

Here are the common problems:

Frequent Equipment Failures

  • Filters and vents could be clogged.

Allergy Symptoms

  • 10-20% of the global population experiences allergies to cats and dogs. Compromised indoor air quality from pet hair or dander can result in:
  • Eye, nose or throat irritation
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
