Have Pets at Home? How to Maintain Energy-Efficient Climate Control for Your Fur Babies

Think of Yourself, but with Fur

If you’re hot, the chances are your pets that have a lot more fur than you do are hot too! If you have very small pets, though, they might be more vulnerable to cold temperatures from air conditioning units and other things in your home. Adjust the temperature to make sure you and your pets are comfortable.

Make Sure Your System Is Running Efficiently

If you struggle to keep your home cool or warm, you might have issues with your heating and cooling system. Companies like Alabama Climate Control can help you keep your home more energy efficient while cooling and heating. There are things you can do to make sure your system is running the best way possible. No matter what type of system you have, try different things to make it easier for you to heat and cool your home.

Make Sure They Have Water

Don’t be worried about your pets drinking too much water. Water is one of the many ways they regulate their body temperature. Keep water available to your pets at all time. It also helps get rid of bad breath in dogs because they’re able to keep more germs out of their mouth when they’re not thirsty. It’s important that your pets have access to cool, clean and fresh water so they can stay as healthy as possible.

Think about Where You Put Beds and Pens

One of the tips for making your home a pet-friendly house from This Old House is being aware of where you put pet beds or pens. Don’t put them close to a vent or close to anything that could blow air out and make it harder for your pets to regulate their temperature. If their pen is right up next to a vent, they could get too hot or too cold when the air or the heat comes on.

By following a few simple steps, you can make your energy efficient home more comfortable for all your pets. There are many things you can do to make your pets comfortable, but keeping it simple is the best way to help them feel better no matter what they’re doing or what you’re doing to keep your house cool.
