Holiday gatherings may be the worst time of year to deal with HVAC troubles. At A/C Care Heat and Air, we provide a broad range of HVAC services and, unfortunately, handle numerous emergency calls throughout the holidays. Let us look at some tips that can help you stave off those issues.
Ideally, you want to schedule your heating tune-up at the end of summer or early autumn. However, it’s better late than never to have an inspection performed. Your local heating service provider can ensure that everything is in order, and if a problem is discovered, it will be less expensive and more convenient to repair it now than when the family has gathered.
If you schedule a tune-up, your technician will change your filters for you. If not, do it yourself. Even if the swap is a little premature, it will avoid dirty filters later. The holidays mean more activity and people, and you may be surprised at just how fast dust accumulates.
Few Degrees Lower Than Normal
Consider setting a profile for your smart thermostat just for the winter. Lower your standard temperature by several degrees at least. More people mean more ambient heat. If it’s too cold for you, you can raise the temperature one degree at a time to find your ideal setting.
Deep Dusting Before and After
More people also means more dust, and dust can accumulate fast. Of course, you want a clean home when friends and family arrive, but this is a great time to perform a deep dusting top to bottom. Be sure to vacuum with a HEPA filter bag.
