4 Christmas HVAC Tips
While holidays are often referred to as the most wonderful time of the year, they are also one of the busiest seasons. While you’re thinking about last minute shopping. parties, and holiday dinner menus, you shouldn’t have to worry about your HVAC system. Check out our helpful tips below for a very Merry Christmas!
Keep Your Vents Clear
With the decorations, presents, and Christmas tree, there are plenty of extra items taking up space in our homes at Christmas. Be sure to make sure nothing is blocking your air vents. When air vents are covered, they aren’t able to do their job in keeping your home warm and cozy. This makes your HVAC system work harder, which could be costly in the future.
Be Mindful of Flammable Objects
Be sure to keep any flammable objects like paper, packages and blankets away from any heating sources including space heaters, radiators, electric blankets, and more. Rest easy knowing that you are keeping you and yours safe this holiday season.
Don’t Cover Your Thermostat
Holiday decorations look great, but don’t get too carried away by covering your thermostat. When your thermostat is covered, this makes it difficult for your thermostat to accurately gauge the temperature in your home. When your thermostat can’t accurately read your home temperature, your furnace can’t do its job accurately either. This can lead to a chilly home and more money spent on heating than necessary.
