HVAC Tips To Keep Your Guests Comfortable This Holiday Season
December 15th, 2021 by cverdone
If you’re going to be hosting family this holiday season, you likely have a lot of things to prepare. One surefire task on your list should be prepping your home’s HVAC system. Here are our top tips to keep your guests comfortable while visiting your home this holiday.
Replace Your Dirty Air Filters
Your HVAC system has at least one air filter. This air filter traps unwanted allergens and pollutants from the air inside of your home. Whenever your air filter reaches the end of its lifespan, it will need a replacement. It will hinder the ability of your HVAC system to produce adequate heat for your guests if not replaced. You should consider investing in a HEPA air filter for the holidays. It can filter out more dust mites, pet dander, mold, dead skin, viruses, and allergens from your indoor air.
Fix Any Air Leaks
Air leaks can be your worst enemy. They will cause your HVAC system to overwork to keep your home warm. Before your holiday celebrations, it’s a good idea to check the windows and doors. This is to determine if there is any cold air seeping in. If so, consider adding weather-stripping. You can also upgrade your windows or doors to restrict the chilly airflow. Fixing these air leaks will also help to reduce your energy bill during the winter season.
Clean Your Home On A Regular Basis
When you opt for cleaning your home, it not only looks good for your guests. It also assists in enhancing the indoor air quality of your home. Dusting, mopping, washing, and vacuuming all remove harmful allergens in your home. Realize that with so many people in and out of your home, they’re introducing more allergens into the air. Staying on top of cleaning is a must.
Turn Down Your Thermostat
As soon as you start getting many people piling up in your home, it’s going to get hot. Throw in some delicious cooking, and it may seem hot inside of your home. To combat this and to keep your guests comfortable, turn down your thermostat. Make sure to have a couple of throw blankets for those family members who are always cold.
Get Professional HVAC Maintenance
