- Be aware of the vents. Vents should never be covered, even if they're located beneath windows where drapes and couches are regularly placed. When moving furniture around to make room for Christmas decorations or for holiday parties, be aware of floor, wall and ceiling vents, and not to block any of them.
- Clean up needles. Pine needles can make their way just about anywhere, including the vents. Clean up daily around your Christmas tree if and when needles start to drop. That is the best way to keep your home tidy and pine needles out of your vents.
- Find a safe place for your tree. It is important to find a place for your 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, it's also a fire risk.
- Make use of alternative heating sources. Make your home nice and toasty by using alternative heat sources to give your HVAC system a bit of a break. If you have a fireplace, get cozy and make good use of it. 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.
