Now that December is in full swing, it’s time to make those final preparations to get your home ready for the holidays. Whether you have guests coming into town or you’re simply anticipating another cold Utah winter, it’s time to get your HVAC system in check.
To help you along this season, we’ve put together a list of holiday HVAC tips sure to ease the stress and keep your home comfortable no matter what.
Tip One: Make a To Do List
Nothing can help reduce stress by figuring out everything you need to do and crossing the tasks off one by one. Make a list of the chores you need to complete and items you need to buy by the holidays, and you’ll be more than prepared in no time.
Tip Two: Turn the Heat Down
Are you cooking for the holidays? Combine the heat from your HVAC system with the heat from your oven, and the food won’t be the only thing baking this year. By turning your furnace down a few degrees, your oven can help make up for the rest of the heat.
Tip Three: Dust, Dust, and Dust Some More
One of the best ways to help your HVAC system before the holidays is by dusting. The more you dust, the less particles will travel through your home’s ductwork and spread throughout your house. We recommend that you take a dry rag and wipe down any exposed services to solve this problem in a pinch.
Tip Four: Get a Furnace Tune-Up!
Start the season on the right foot with a maintenance appointment! That way, you can ensure all potential problems are caught before it’s too late. Performing regular maintenance on your furnace will prolong the life of your heating system. If your furnace is not running properly it can drastically reduce its efficiency, which can cost you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills. Not to mention if your furnace is leaking carbon monoxide, your entire family could be at risk for serious health problems.
