Heating System Tips for the Holidays
Whether you are entertaining guests or having a low-key holiday season, chances are you are looking for ways to keep your home warm and cozy. Our HVAC professionals at Innovative Mechanical, LLC have the following heating system tips for the communities we serve in Metro Atlanta.
Schedule Your HVAC Maintenance
We recommend having your HVAC system inspected at least once yearly. If you have not had your system inspected, now is the time. Furnace failure and unexpectedly high heating bills can quickly put a damper on your holiday spirit.
Lower Your Thermostat During Gatherings
During holiday gatherings, chances are you will be using the oven, which generates additional heat. Your guests’ warm bodies will also produce more heat in your indoor spaces. In addition to avoiding making your guests feel uncomfortably warm, lowering the temperature in your home during holiday gatherings will also lower your heating costs.
Clean Your Heating System’s Ducts and Filter
Dust regularly accumulates within your home’s heating system ducts. Your furnace’s filter was designed to collect dust and debris. When these components become covered in dust and impurities, your home’s indoor air quality may be compromised. Dust accumulation also forces your furnace to work harder, which can lead to premature wear and breakdown. Our technicians are available to professionally and thoroughly clean your home’s heating system.
Keep Flammable Objects Away From Heat Sources
During the holiday season, you are more likely to have extra blankets and possibly space heaters around your home. Keep fabric, upholstery and other flammable items away from vents and heaters to avoid the risk of causing a fire. Carefully monitor children to ensure they do not get too close to heat sources or leave flammable items in close proximity.
