No one is prouder than me of their pet family members. I adopt from shelters or rescues, I take in strays, and I work very hard to restore these animals to full health, both emotionally and physically. It’s time-consuming and costly, and worth every moment and penny of the effort. But when my grandson recently began to exhibit severe allergic reactions while staying with me, I realized that the perfect environment I had created for my pets was causing real distress to those I love. I knew I had to do something to get rid of the excess accumulation of pet hair and pet dander. I wondered what effect this had on my air conditioning system which draws all the air in through vents, cools it, and blows it back into the room through a series of ductwork. The effect is actually rather dramatic.

Obviously, regularly changing A/C filters is the first order of business for pet owners. Even when that chore is performed consistently, pet hair and pet dander can easily accumulate and clog that filter which will cause your system to work harder not smarter, and can result in system breakdowns. But those same pollutants that can result in allergies, or even worse health problems, can also gather and build up in your ductwork, blowing unclean air throughout your home. In addition to changing the filter, you should have a professional clean your ducts.

But is there more? There is another step you should take, particularly if health problems have been an issue; obtain an air purification system. Your A/C service provider can open a whole world of good health up to you by utilizing modern, technologically advanced, air purifiers in combination with your A/C system. Every bit of the air in your home can be purified, imagine that! What are you waiting for?
