Top Hypoallergenic Pets to Help Your HVAC System

Hypoallergenic Pets for Your HVAC System

If you're looking for a pet that won't cause problems with your HVAC system, then you might want to consider one of these top hypoallergenic pets. All of these animals are great companions and will help improve the air quality in your home. They also won't damage your air filter like other animals can, so you'll be able to keep your HVAC system running at its best for longer!

How Do Hypoallergenic Pets "Help?"

While it's true that all animals shed some fur, there are certain breeds of animals that don't produce as much dander as others. Pet hair is one of the main contributors to HVAC air filters filling quickly, and the more hair, you'll find yourself changing air filters often.

Hypoallergenic pets are also great for those who want a pet but have allergies. While you should always confirm with your doctor before getting a new furry family member, here are some pets you can look into.

Pets that Are Good for Your HVAC System

Keep the sniffles down and your home's HVAC system working its best with these pets that shed less and have more fun!


It's true birds lose feathers that can trigger allergies, however, some species of birds like parakeets are still good pets for your home. You can reduce feather buildup by keeping your little tweeting friend's cage clean.

Hypoallergenic Dogs

Dogs are by far one of the most popular animals kept inside a home — and boy do some of them shed a lot. However, there are several hypoallergenic breeds like:

  • Poodle

  • Shih Tzu

  • Portuguese Water Dog

  • Bichon Frise

  • Maltese Terrier

The list goes on, and in no time, you'll be welcoming your new fur baby home!


This one's pretty obvious, but who doesn't love a nice fish tank setup? Fish are one of the safest animals you can bring into your home. They don't have fur to clog your AC filters, and as long as you keep their tanks clean, your home's air quality should also be in good shape!
