Is Your Home Ready for Holiday Guests?
The holiday season is upon us, but is your home ready for holiday guests? As many of us scramble to complete last minute preparations amidst this holiday dash, don’t forget to prepare your HVAC system if you are expecting guests. Having a comfortable home can make a huge difference in their stay. Keep reading for HVAC to-do list suggestions to keep a comfortable, healthy, and happy home for everyone this season!
Begin With A Seasonal Tune Up
Start on the right foot by scheduling a seasonal HVAC maintenance tune up. Having your system regularly inspected and maintained by professionals can keep your system running efficiently and prevent any unexpected surprises. While the new year is almost here, enrolling in a maintenance plan can take away stress for next year and many years to come.
Our Priority Plus Maintenance Plan requires minimal investment and offers special discounts and priority service. Regular tune-ups are a great way to ensure your guests aren’t left in the cold this Christmas season. Even better, you’ll minimize your risk of needing costly repairs so you’ll keep more money in your pocket which we could all benefit from during the holiday season!
Replace Your Air Filters
We know we sound like a broken record player, but changing your air filters is so important! If you don’t remember the last time you changed your filter, it’s probably time to check it out. Replacing your filter is a simple task which can make a huge difference in your home’s air quality and your comfort system’s efficiency. Clean filters can also lengthen your system’s life, and ensure even airflow throughout your home for a more comfortable atmosphere.
If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat, this is your sign to invest in one for your home. These thermostats are great for saving energy and keeping everyone comfortable at all times. Do you like your home to be cooler when you sleep, but hate waking up to a cold home? A programmable thermostat is a great solution! With these advanced thermostats you can schedule temperatures to be lower as you sleep, and warm again before you even wake up. Guests will admire your customizable temperature settings, and you’ll save money scheduling your home’s comfort according to your lifestyle.
Unobstruct Your Air Vents
While we love the cozy atmosphere of the holidays, too many blankets, decorations, or toys and gifts can impair your system’s effectiveness if they’re in the way of your air vents. A common sign of blocked vents is uneven heating throughout your home. Keep your vents clear of any obstructions to ensure comfort for your guests and efficiency for your HVAC system.
If your air vents are unobstructed but visibly dirty, it’s time for a good cleaning. Take the vent covers off, wash them in warm soapy water, allow them to dry, and replace them. You’ll experience better air flow and impress your guests with a clean home down to the little details.
Check Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide leaks increase greatly during the winter months. To be safe, check your detectors to make sure they are working properly. Replace any batteries if necessary. Carbon monoxide is difficult to detect and fatally dangerous, so be sure your detectors are working correctly! Your guests will appreciate your thoughtful and safe thinking.
Clean The Air In Your Home
Yes, we’ve mentioned changing your air filter is important for your home’s air quality. However, even more impactful to keeping your home’s air clean and healthy is an air purification system. Air purifiers remove 99.9% of airborne allergens, including pet dander, pollen, dirt, and bacteria from your home. Some air purifiers are also effective in nearly eliminating viruses, including Covid-19, from the air in your home. Ask us about our air purification solutions!
