How to Keep Your Pets Cool in Chico and Redding Rental Properties

June 18, 2021 / by Hignell Rentals Team

With the summer heat with us, it is common to have that air conditioning running while you are at home. But what about when you aren’t at home? Do you keep your pets and their livelihood in mind when you walk out that door? Here are a six tips to implement to help your pet stay cooler in your rental while you are away.

1. Keep Air Moving

For your pets, it's important to keep the room that they are in as cool as possible. Do this by keeping the fans on for constant circulation. You don’t want your pet to be sitting in a room that is not only hot but stuffy as well.

2. Set the Thermostat

You can program your air conditioner to come on at certain points of the day or when it hits a hotter temperature. When pets are inside the house during hot temperatures, they should be a rental that has a thermostat set to 78-80 degrees. You can figure out which point of the days gets the hottest in your rental so you can schedule the thermostat to help keep your pet cool.

February 11, 2021 / by Hignell Rentals Team

Everyone wants an adorable pet that is fluffy and cuddly! They are loyal, offer unconditional love, and always ready to spend time with you. They become a large part of our lives and we can’t imagine living without them.

That’s why if you’re thinking about getting a pet while living in an apartment, or already have a pet and thinking about moving into a new apartment, you need to know about apartment friendly breeds.

Important Note: For Hignell Rentals apartments that accept pets, you are only allowed a dog, cat, fish, or bird and they should weigh 30lbs or under.

Pet Etiquette For Living in Chico Apartments

May 7, 2020 / by Hignell Rentals Team

When living in Chico apartments, it's important to be mindful that you have others living in close proximity and that respectful pet etiquette is necessary. Especially during quarantine!

Having neighbors can be fun as it builds a sense of community and, when quarantine is over, a social benefit for apartment living.

Yet, living so close to others can sometimes be less than desirable, especially when there are unexplained noises coming from above, below, or through your bedroom wall....ahem barking puppy, quiet please!
