It’s time for us to prepare our homes for the holidays. Our HVAC system is essential to ensure everyone’s comfort and ease the holiday chaos. J.C.’s Heating and Air is here to help you if you need to schedule an HVAC preventive maintenance. Our HVAC contractors can quickly determine if your HVAC system needs to be repaired. Here are some HVAC tips that will help you prepare for the holiday season:
Dust your home
Dusting is one of the easiest ways to increase the efficiency of your HVAC system. Grab a dry cloth and clean every surface of your home. Dusting will stop dust from spreading throughout your home, particularly through your ductwork. You will also enjoy better indoor air quality.
Keep your vents clear
Your HVAC system will work more efficiently if your vents are clear. Problems with your vents could also lead to costly repairs. Adjust holiday decorations to ensure they don’t block vents.
Change the air filter regularly
The easiest thing you can do for your HVAC system to run efficiently is to clean or change your air filter. Did you know that your monthly bill could increase as high as 15% if the filter is dirty? You can prolong the lifespan of your entire system by changing your filter.
Set the thermostat accordingly
It’s likely that once people arrive, you won’t have time to worry about the indoor temperature of your home. You can make it easier by programming your thermostat ahead of time so that you can leave it on and keep everyone comfortable.
Inspect your carbon monoxide detectors
You should make sure that your monoxide detectors work properly before the holidays. Obstructions or blockages in the vents can lead to fatalities. Reliable HVAC contractors should be called to schedule a maintenance appointment. They will also check if the carbon monoxide detectors work properly.
Take a look at your condenser unit
Sometimes we focus too much on the outside, but neglect to inspect our outside condenser units. Be sure to clean your exterior condenser unit of any pest nests or debris that could damage your heating and cooling system before you start holiday preparations.
Schedule an HVAC maintenance
It is not ideal to have HVAC problems during holiday celebrations in freezing weather. For a preventive measure, contact J.C.’s Heating and Air for a checkup. We can help you with any type of repair or replacement. Not only will it prevent you from major problems in the future but it will also provide you with peace of mind during the holiday season.
