Keep Pests Out of Your HVAC System

Most HVAC systems work by exchanging your house's air with the air outdoors. This means holes in the exterior of your house for vents, and that in turn could mean possible openings where insects and other household pests can find their way inside.

However, you can reduce the risk of critters invading your house through the heating or cooling ducts with a few common-sense steps, including:

• Don't let water pool near your outdoor air conditioner. Pests seek out water. Redirect the water away from the house. • Cover duct entrances. A mesh screen or louver can help close your ducts off to invaders while still allowing free air flow. • Keep your ductwork maintained. Gaps in ducts are potential entry points. Look for cracks or worn duct tape and replace or repair as necessary. • Control vermin or insects. Regular pest spraying can help keep problems away, particularly home defense sprays that are applied directly to your house around vulnerable areas to discourage invaders.

Regular professional maintenance of your system can also help identify problem spots where pests might get in. Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning can offer HVAC check-ups and repair. If you have reason to think your system might not be running smoothly, call Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning and have it checked out. We’re available in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque and the surrounding communities, so call us today at 505-891-8907.
