HVAC Tips for the Holidays

If you're expecting to host a small holiday party this holiday season, you will want to ensure that your HVAC system is in good working condition. Not only is it going to be colder, but simply having a few extra warm bodies could change how efficient your HVAC system will be working this winter. Here are a few tips that will help you get everything ready.

Schedule an Inspection

Ideally, you should have your HVAC system inspected in the fall or early winter before the cold season begins. If you haven't done that already, there's still time to call an HVAC contractor at Cahill Heating to complete the inspection before you have your holiday guests over. This little bit of maintenance could help you find and fix minor issues before they turn into costly repairs.

Dust Your Home

Yes, dusting your home can affect your HVAC system's efficiency. A lack of dust on your furniture means a lack of dust in the air when your furnace turns on, which will improve the air quality. It might also help you get a little more life out of your furnace filter since it won't have to work as hard to keep dust and other debris out of your ducts.

Change Your Filter

Speaking of filters, you should at least check on your HVAC system's filter. This should be done at least once a month regardless of the season, but it will be even more important if you have a crowd of people in your home.

Turn Down Your Thermostat

Even though it will get colder outside, you will want to turn down your thermostat a bit if you have company over. Many warm bodies will raise the temperature in your home regardless of how you program your thermostat, so you shouldn't worry about people getting too cold. As long as you keep your home at a comfortable temperature and nobody is complaining about it being too cold, you should be fine to turn the temperature down a bit.
