Nights are cooler, small talk has turned to football and pumpkin spice is everywhere. Before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us. Whether you choose to host a small Friendsgiving, a holiday ugly-sweater party, or relatives who stay overnight for a dinner with the whole family, make sure your home’s HVAC system is ready to keep your guests comfortable.
Holiday Travel Rises As Temperatures Drop
In 2017, AAA reported nearly 51 million Americans were expected to travel for Thanksgiving. This was an increase of 3.3 percent from 2016! If you’re lucky enough to avoid the roads and skies this holiday season, you may not be out of the woods for holiday stress. When you’re the host of the party, you face a different set of considerations for the perfect event.
Good Food, Good Times…Comfortable HVAC?
Admit it, you’ve attended a party at the home of a friend or relative and had to step out of the room for a breath of fresh air. When you add people to a small space, things can get uncomfortable. Throw in some heavier winter clothes, light the fireplace for some cozy holiday charm, and you may look to your air conditioner for some quick relief from the additional warmth.
After the party ends, what about your overnight guests? Don’t leave them in a search for an extra blanket in the middle of the night. Make sure your heating system is ready to keep everyone comfortable during a cold snap, especially if you haven’t used your furnace much this season.
Benefits of an HVAC tune-up
To make sure your holiday guests are as comfortable in your home as possible, schedule an HVAC tune-up. When your air conditioner and furnace have been checked and serviced, you can be confident they are ready to heat or cool as you need.
If you use a heat pump, make sure it’s serviced after working hard all summer. Help it easily transition to heating with maintenance. Consider these benefits:
- Warmth when you need it. A tune-up can identify and correct small problems before they become big, expensive ones. Don’t get caught in the cold by something you could prevent!
- Improved efficiency. Your heating bill can become a major household expense in the winter months. A tuned-up HVAC system saves energy, which reduces your bills.
- Better air quality. All HVAC tune-ups include a check of the air filter, to determine whether it should be cleaned or replaced. A dirty filter causes your system to work harder than necessary to circulate air through your home, and it won’t remove fall allergens and pollutants as effectively.
- Peace of mind. When you service your HVAC system at the start of the fall season, you can relax and enjoy the holidays with one less worry.
