When it comes to the holidays, most of us look forward to family get-togethers, stuffing our faces with special family recipes and celebrating another year gone by. However, with so much going on, it can be easy to forget about your furnace and all the HVAC maintenance you need for a successful holiday season. Without proper HVAC maintenance, your system could be costing you hundreds more than it needs to. Additionally, with the hustle and bustle of the season, your home could use a boost to its efficiency to take some of the load off throughout the cold months in Collinsville. Follow these 5 tips to get your home ready for the holidays!
All HVAC systems should have maintenance once per year; especially before peak season. A furnace inspection will ensure that all components are working properly and won’t cause any issues when you need them most. Additionally, these yearly inspections will be sure to catch any major problems before it’s too late.
When was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? Duct cleaning includes the cleaning of air vents, registers and even the coils of your system to ensure the air being pumped into your home is clean and palatable. With people coming in and out of your home all season, you’ll want to ensure the air is as clean as possible.
This is a simple one you can do yourself. Replace that air filter to maintain the efficiency of your HVAC system throughout the year. Air filter replacement should be done at least once per month and sometimes more depending on your system.
With the oven going ‘round the clock and the body heat from a full living room, you won’t need to put your furnace into overdrive. Turn down the heat during get-togethers to keep the home from feeling like it is the oven.
One great way to get your home ready for the holiday season is to inspect windows and doors. Check for drafty conditions or cracks and holes around window and door frames. Properly sealing cracks will help save energy and cut down any drafty areas in your home!
