3 Tips For Pet Owners To Improve Their Indoor Air Quality 

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!

  • I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one about A-plus! It was -15 degrees outside and I tried calling multiple companies (including Enercare and Reliance) and they all put me on hold and were unable to have one of their guys sent out the same day! I was panicking as I had a 2 year old! Thankfully, I stumbled upon A Plus quality who sent out a technician in a matter of 1 hour. Their name and what they stand for is truly A plus quality and I cannot recommend them enough!

  • We had an urgent venting issue that meant our gas line was turned off until it could be resolved, so we needed immediate support so we could have heat/hot water in our house again. Their office called me within 30 mins of my request on Home Stars and were super communicative throughout. Ronnie and his partner who came this morning were incredibly informative, kind, and answered all our questions (not to mention very respectful of our home by putting on shoe covers when they came inside). Their excellent and timely work meant our problem was resolved in under 18 hours from the time the issue was identified. Highly recommend!

  • I don't usually leave reviews. I was enthusiastic to leave one for A Plus Quality Inc. It's a shame that other companies don't exist like Shaq and his team. They are genuinely the good ol' fashioned group that take care and service your needs from end to end. I'd be happy to recommend them to family, friends and collegues. Thank you and Happy Holidays! - Anthony

FAQ

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • 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 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.

  • What are mini-split advantages?

    Just as the name implies, a “mini-split” system is a “split system” however available in smaller capacities, for single room to whole house conditioning. Mini-split systems may range from as small as 9,000 BTUh per hour, comparable to say, a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room By Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. With near universal design, mini-splits are “heat pumps” which provide both heating and cooling for a home. Here are key advantages when compared to traditional split systems:

    Efficiency- Mini-splits are highly engineered systems which offer attractive operating efficiencies, in many instances, eligible for utility company rebates.
    Heat Pump- Most mini-split systems are heat pumps, providing year-round comfort.
    Solar friendly- Due to very low power requirements, mini-splits are an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes, or any home using renewable power.
    Carbon footprint- Mini-splits are 100% electric, with zero operating emissions of any type.
    Zoning- Most mini-split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning”, to account for peak demands of a room based upon construction type, exposure orientation and usage.
    Variable capacity- Mini-splits are typically DC inverter driven. That is, a variable speed compressor which modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Most conventional split systems, by comparison, operate with an ON-OFF strategy. (Would you use an ON-OFF switch as the accelerator in your vehicle?)
    Location, Location, Location!- Mini-split outdoor units are compact; they can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas, such as bedrooms and home offices. Mini-split indoor units have the ability to be installed where conventional systems cannot.
    They’re perfect for additions and remodels where access to current HVAC system is difficult to access.
    Modern mini-split systems are remarkably quiet; in fact, many times their operation is unnoticed by the end user.

  • 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.
