Why our ductless heat pumps are a great choice for pet owners

September 15, 2020

Dander, hair, and allergies, oh my!

Pets. Some of our greatest companions, confidants, and playmates. With a ball, a bone, or a treat, they are prepared to run and play. Loyalty is a dominant trait. Our furry friends are ready to watch our favorite movie, clean up our crumbs, and greet every human and package at the door. While owning a pet has endless perks, they come with a whole lot of responsibilities, dander, and allergies.

Our four-legged friends can certainly bring tremendous joy to our lives, however, their hair and dander can diminish the air quality in our homes and trigger sneezes, sniffles, and watery eyes. Not only that, when we head off to work, play, or for a day of errands, it becomes costly to leave our entire home at a temperature that is comfortable for our pets in the heat of summer or frigid winter. 

Fortunately, ductless heat pump systems can help solve both problems. Their multistage filtration system allows you to enjoy your pets without irritating allergens, while their zoned heating and cooling enables you to set a single room or space to an ideal temperature for your pet while you’re away.

Multistage filtration

Allergies are dreadful. Constant sniffling and sneezing with itchy and watery eyes make it difficult to enjoy anything, let alone your furry friends. Ductless heat pump systems can help with not only allergies caused by your pet’s fur and dander, but seasonal allergies too!

Your ductless heat pump comes with a multistage filtration system that constantly cleans and filters the air in your home. While you are working around your house and enjoying your furry friends, your unit is working to pull the contaminated air through its filters, sending back cleaner air. Enjoy your home and your pets while your system works for you. 

Additionally, the filters that come with your system are reusable, which is a huge perk. Simply wash and vacuum your filter every other month to ensure efficiency. For step-by-step cleaning instructions, take a look at this blog: Breathe easy with IDHP

For further filtration, add-on air scrubbing devices can be easily installed on each of your indoor units. These air scrubbing devices reduce particulates, allergens, smoke, bacteria, viruses, mold, and spores in your indoor unit coil and your living space by more than 99%.

Zoned heating and cooling

One of the many benefits of ductless heating and cooling systems is zoned temperature control. We all have the space in our home that we spend most of our time congregating in. With zoned heating and cooling, you can set an ideal temperature in a specific space or room without your system having to work hard to create the same temperature throughout the entire house. 

This establishes both ideal and affordable comfort. The reason we say “affordable” is because ductless heat pumps use 40%-60% less energy to heat or cool your home, which means your heating and cooling expenses are 40%-60% less than what they would be with other common HVAC systems. 

So, leave your pets in your zoned space while you head out for a day trip, work, or to run errands, knowing they are comfortable and that you aren’t racking up dollar signs while you’re away. 

In closing

If you are someone who suffers from allergies due to pet hair and dander, or even seasonal allergies … or both, ductless heat pumps can be a game changer. Enjoy your pet and your space with affordable comfort any time of the year.
