3 Tips For Pet Owners To Improve Their Indoor Air Quality 

Since time, people have always co-existed with pets in the home. Dogs and cats are the most popular animals to have as pets where most people consider them part of their family. But, having animals in the home unavoidably leads to a collection of dander that affects the quality of indoor air and the health of your family. Older adults and children are greatly affected by dander that triggers allergies. How then can you improve indoor air quality when you have pets in the house?

1. Improve your Ventilation
One effective way of improving air quality in the house is to let in more air from outside. You can do this by opening doors and windows more often. Also, make sure you are changing your air filter regularly to assure proper ventilation. Home’s with pets require the air filter being changed more often, meaning every 30-60 days, because of pet dander, hair/fur, dirt, and dust.

2. Get an Air Purification System
Pet allergies do not manifest right after acquiring a pet; it takes time for it to start affecting you. Do not wait until your children develop allergies to purchase an air purification system. Obtain one from A-Plus Quality, HVAC Services in the Greater Toronto Area, that filters particles, attacks odours, and destroys germs. A more advanced system will also get rid of bacteria, germs, airborne particles, as well as chemical vapours and odours. An air purification system like this will remove pet dander, dust, pet smells, and pollen leaving the air indoors fresh and clean. 

3. Regular Cleaning
Cleaning your house and pets is the first step in having clean air. Brush and bathe your pet regularly outside the house to get rid of any loose fur and prevent spreading it inside. Also, clean their sleeping area and the carpet with a vacuum cleaner often. If your pet lives indoors, clean your air ducts more regularly as pet hair gathers in air ducts. 

As a pet owner, it is to take good care of your pets- the same goes for your home. If you are in need of an air cleaner, or any other HVAC system, A-Plus Quality HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area can be of assistance. Contact us today to speak with an HVAC expert!

  • We needed a new boiler fast and they were faster than the other places we got quotes from, they were more sincere, less sales-oriented , and they had more technical knowledge and were able to explain things in layman's terms. They were transparent in their pricing and everything came out as estimated after the boiler was replaced. They didn't try to sell us maintenance packages or anything like that, just gave us the service we needed. We feel lucky to have stumbled upon them.

FAQ

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337
