As we all know, dogs have been considered “man’s best friend” for as long as we can remember, but the relationship between your dog and your air conditioning system is a little more complicated.
How Can Dogs Affect Your A/C?
Quality of Air:
Seeing dog fur on the carpet and furniture is very common and quite easy to remove, but did you know their fur actually gets into the filters, ducts, and coils of your air conditioning unit as well? Extreme build-up of fur and dander in your system can cause damage to the unit and affect its ability to cool the home. This can also cause allergens and smells to circulate throughout your home.
So you know that you need a new air conditioning system, but you’re not sure where to start. We have some advice for you below so that you know what’s coming and what to do to prepare. The most important piece of advice we can give if you’re in the Palmetto Bay area, though, is not to stress! We’ve got you covered.
Frustrated by your high energy bills, especially in the hottest summer months? You’re not alone. The harder your air conditioner works, the more energy it uses, and the more it’s going to cost to run. However, if you’re noticing bills that are much, much higher than they were in previous years, you may have a problem on your hands.
When you’ve been outside for a prolonged period, or when the outside air is hot, humid, and gloomy, you look forward to an air conditioned home. You may even hope that your home is like an icebox when you arrive. So you set the temperature to an extremely low one, perhaps as low as your thermostat can go, the moment you get home.
When your air conditioner breaks down, you need to scramble to get a technician to your home and get your house back to a comfortable state, especially in the middle of summer. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could feel more confident that your air conditioner would not break down when you need it most?
