It’s that time of year again! Your HVAC unit is working hard to make sure you and your family are warm and cozy this holiday season. Ensuring that your HVAC system is in excellent condition and is prepared for the holidays is important whether you are hosting a holiday party or you’re just enjoying the day with your loved ones. The weather forecast for Christmas is looking chilly, and Royal Heating & Air wants to make sure that your home is ready no matter what your plans consist of. The best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks has put together a list of 5 HVAC tips to help get you through the holiday season. Don’t forget, if you haven’t had your furnace tune-up, now is the time! Make sure your furnace is ready for the cold weather ahead.
Change the Air Filter
It’s a good idea to check your systems air filter about once a month and change as necessary. Every home is different, so how often you change your filter will be unique to your home. A clogged and dirty air filter can make your HVAC system work harder than it needs to. This makes it more difficult for your system to produce the heat that is necessary. A severely clogged filter can even become a fire hazard.
Be Aware of the Vents
Air vents should never be covered up, even if they are located beneath windows where window coverings and couches are regularly placed. When moving any furniture around to make room for your Christmas decorations, or to create extra space for guests, you should always be aware of floor, wall, and ceiling vents.
Find A Safe Place for Your Christmas Tree
It is important to find a place for your Christmas tree that is far away from any heating source. Putting a tree too close to a heat source not only dries out the tree faster, but it also creates a fire risk. You should also routinely water your tree to keep it from drying out.
Clean Up Any Needles
Pine needles can make their way just about anywhere, including air vents. If needles are dropping from your tree, it’s important to clean up around your tree every few days. Not only does it help keep your home tidy, but it also helps to keep any pine needles out of your vents.
Make Use of Alternative Heating Sources
Make your home nice and cozy by using alternative heat sources to give your HVAC system a bit of a break. If you have a fireplace, get cozy and have a movie night in front of the fireplace. Test out new holiday cookie recipes and use the stove top and oven to create some heat while also filling up on delicious holiday treats. While using your stove to cook can help generate some heat, just remember to never use your stove as a heat source to heat your home.
