Keep Bugs Away From Your HVAC System

While there are creepy-crawlies all over our lovely globe, the last thing you probably want to worry about is discovering bugs in your home’s HVAC equipment.

The good news is that removing these parasites from your system isn’t too tough if you follow a few easy guidelines.

Every homeowner is aware that cracks and gaps form throughout their home, particularly around doors and windows. This also occurs at the margins of your HVAC equipment or close enough to it for bugs to enter the system itself. This will be resolved by filling any issue regions. Insects and arachnids frequently enter your HVAC system through rips and cracks in your home’s ducting. You should plug up any issue spots to keep them out, which includes inspecting for loosened joints and areas where rust and corrosion have happened. This will reduce your risk of being bitten by these bugs. Bugs, as you’re probably aware, are drawn to greenery. If you have grass, flowers, or other sorts of vegetation near your HVAC system’s outside unit, these pests can easily get inside your HVAC equipment. Keep two feet of unobstructed space around each side of the device for safety. This should give a fair buffer zone to keep them out while still ensuring adequate ventilation for your system. Air vents without screens are an ideal entry point for even the smallest of creatures into your house. Insects and arachnids will be kept at bay by mesh screens that cover the whole vent. They are inexpensive and incredibly effective.
