Heating and cooling systems come with many modern comforts, but they can attract pests. Pest infestations are never an enjoyable experience, but are often expensive and gross. Luckily, there are measures you and your HVAC team can take to ensure your HVAC system does not attract pests. In this blog Redline Heating will share three ways to keep pests out of your HVAC system.
Unchecked moisture is a quick way to attracts pests. Pests gravitate towards moist, wet areas. All creatures need water to survive. You can control moisture by using dehumidifiers in bathrooms and other wet areas. It is especially important to ensure the area near your outdoor air conditioning stays dry. If this area becomes wet it can quickly become an attractive home to many different pests.
One of the best ways to prevent pests, from your entering your home, is by sealing off pests’ points of entry. You will likely need to contact a pest control professional to ensure your home is properly sealed. However, our professionals at, Redline Heating, can fit vents with protective screens. These protective HVAC screens will prevent vermin from entering your home. Further, we can pinpoint which drafts may be vulnerable to intrusion.
It is also important to seal your ductwork. Oer time, your duct work will degrade, fail. Gaps in your air ducts can waste energy and create pathways for pests. Consult with our technicians to ensure ductwork is sealed.
Prevention and Maintenance
Perhaps the best way to prevent vermin is through prevention and regular maintenance. Semi-annual professional inspections and tune-ups are the best way to check for signs of pests in your HVAC system. Our team of certified technicians can ensure your home is protected. We recommend having your HVAC system inspected at least once a year. Redline Heating is happy to inspect your HVAC system and provide guidance when it comes to pest maintenance. However, we recommend working with a professional team of exterminatiors to eliminate vermin.
Ensure your HVAC system does not attract pests by keeping moisture in-check, sealing HVAC cracks, and annual maintenance. Redline Heating will help you keep your home and HVAC system pest free.
