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!

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

FAQ

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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
