HVAC Tips & Helpful Reminders for the Holidays

HVAC tips for the holidays

It is already that time of year! Holiday parties are in full swing and the boozy eggnog is still a flowin’. Do you plan on hosting a holiday bash of your own this year? Let us provide you with some quick, fool-proof HVAC tips to help you survive this year’s holiday festivities!

HVAC Tip #1 – Change Your Furnace Filter

We hope your holiday party is “lit”, but perhaps not “too lit”.*Queues “Burning Down the House” by the Talking Heads*.  Did you know the number one cause of a furnace fire is a dirty furnace filter? Save yourself from embarrassment, and make sure to change your filter! At the very least, remove the dirty one until you can replace it with a clean one. Take a peek at our how-to videos to refresh your memory on how to change your filter. This is one of the most important HVAC tips, but also the most preventable measure to take to ensure your holiday bash kicks off without a spark (in the furnace that is).

HVAC Tip #2 – Program Your Thermostat

Between greeting new arrivals, refilling hor d’oeuvres and making sure Uncle Louis avoids the cheese platter, you will have no time to worry about your indoor temperature. With a programmable thermostat, you can easily set it and forget it. You can even choose preferable temperatures for up to four different times that day. We recommend setting the thermostat at a slightly cooler temperature mid-party just when things start to heat up.

HVAC Tip #3 – Check Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of gas furnaces. It is virtually odorless, colorless gas that is safely combusted and vented away from the house. However, old or clogged venting can lead to carbon monoxide build up in the vents, which can prove to be fatal. Make sure your monoxide detectors are up and running in case of an emergency.

Follow these HVAC tips if you want to be on your way to hosting the holiday party of the year!

The leaves have fallen; temperatures have dropped; now all that is missing is a little snow!—kidding. Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and the word “thankful” is on everyone’s mind. What are you thankful for? Besides the obvious, there are three great reasons why you should be thankful for your HVAC system. Read further to find out all you have to be thankful for when it comes to your home comfort needs.

1. Warmth & Coziness in the Winter

Maybe the most obvious reason to be thankful for your HVAC system this time of year is instant heat! Without a properly functioning system, your home would be without a reliable source of warmth. Now you can live comfortably throughout the cold, frigid winters. A functioning HVAC system helps you put the “cozy” back into your holiday season with continuous warmth, which creates a delightful atmosphere for you and yours.

2. Fresh, Clean Air All Year Long

Your system works hard to filter out pollutants and other various contaminants such as dust, pollen, mold, and allergens. The product is fresh, clean air that is circulated throughout your home. You should be thankful for your HVAC system as it helps avoid respiratory issues. It also helps those that live with breathing conditions, such as asthma, allergies, and emphysema.

3. Cost Efficient & Green

If you know a few things about home ownership, you know homeowners often run into unplanned expenses. However, aside from maintenance and regular air filter changing, your HVAC system is fairly inexpensive and efficient to run. Bob’s Heating proudly partners with Built Green, Energy Star, and the Environmental Protection Agency to further emphasize the importance of owning green HVAC products. If you buy from Bob’s Heating, you can rest easy knowing your home has an energy-efficient HVAC system in place.
