For many homeowners in the Charlotte area, springtime means allergy season. But did you know that your pets could be just as affected by allergies? At Patterson Heating & Air Conditioning, we’ve found several ways to keep our four-legged friend Sophie allergy free during spring. Here are four tips to reduce pet allergies in your home.

Change air filters in Charlotte, NC

Proper HVAC maintenance starts with regularly changing the air filters. This is also particularly effective for reducing your pet’s allergic symptoms. Air filters collect the dust, pollen and mold spores that can affect pet health during spring.

UV lights in ductwork

Mold is one of the leading causes of allergies in pets, and it can cause health issues for people as well. Mildew and mold can grow and circulate through the ductwork if left unattended. A UV light installed in your duct system will eliminate mold spores, helping your pets breathe easier this season.

Dust vent grills

One of the quickest and easiest ways to reduce pet allergies is to dust your HVAC registers. When large amounts of dust accumulate on the vent grills, it begins to make its way into your home. Dust your air registers and then wipe them down with a damp rag to keep your home’s air fresh and clean.
