With the holidays knocking on our doors, you’re probably busy planning festive dinner parties, buying presents for family and friends, and decorating your home with twinkling lights. We understand that this time of year can be hectic, and our team at McAllister wants to make these next few months as stress-free as possible. We’ve compiled a list of HVAC tips to ensure peace of mind throughout the holiday season.
Tips to Keep Your Home Comfortable This Holiday
Turn your thermostat down a few degrees.
Are you hosting a holiday party this year? If so, you might be tempted to turn your thermostat up to ensure everyone stays warm—but that’s not the case. If you’re having family and friends over, don’t set the thermostat too high. Having more people in the house and using appliances for cooking will create more than enough heat.
Keep flammable objects away from your HVAC system.
From piles of blankets to boxes of decorations to stacks of presents, things are always piling up around the holidays! It’s important to keep these items away from your home’s heating system to minimize the risk of fire. This is especially important with small children or pets running around the house.
Minimize the amount of dust in your home—and your ducts!
When cleaning your home this holiday, don’t skip dusting! The more you dust, the less dust particles will travel through your ductwork and spread throughout your home. Dusting won’t just make your home feel clean and inviting, but will reduce the chances of your guests’ asthma or allergies acting up.
Replace your HVAC system’s air filter.
Changing the heating system’s air filters restores the indoor air quality in your home so you can be worry-free when your guests arrive. If you haven’t replaced your air filter in the past month, this task should be added to your to-do list.
Ensure your heating system is operating at peak efficiency.
Whether guests are coming into town for the afternoon or staying the night, you want them to feel right at home. The easiest way to do that is by scheduling furnace maintenance with McAllister.
