3 HVAC Heating Tips for the Holidays

The holidays are the time of year when you need your heating system to be working for you. The last thing you want is to cancel your social plans. You also don’t want to be forced to find another place to celebrate because your heating system is not working. Here are some tips to take care of your HVAC system during the holiday season.

1. Change Your Filter

You may have guests over to your home for the holiday. You want to ensure that the air that they breathe in your home is not filled with impurities. When you have an old air filter, the air in your home may be dusty and dirty and can make your guests sick. Changing your air filter keeps your HVAC system working at maximum efficiency with cleaner air throughout your home. This is something that you must do periodically.

2. Check Your System

Sometimes, there may be a pending problem that you simply do not know about that can rear its head during the holiday season. After all, December is one of the coldest times of the year, and your HVAC system is working harder than usual. It helps to have your HVAC system checked every so often to diagnose the problems that may be lying in wait for you. Sometimes, smaller issues can become big and expensive problems if they are not checked and tended to on time.

3. Perform Safety Checks

One common hazard is when flammable objects are in close proximity to a heating source. This can put you and your family at risk. Be mindful of where your decorations are located in your home and make sure that they are not anyplace close to a heater. Also, make sure that decorations and any other holiday items are kept away from the ducts or places where they can block the flow of air in your home.
