Many homes are heated and cooled through a central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC). Making sure your house is warm and comfortable is important during the holidays when the weather is cold and your friends and family members are visiting. Here are five smart HVAC tips for the holiday season.
Hire a Pro to Inspect Your HVAC Ductwork
A professional HVAC specialist can inspect your ductwork for leaks. If any are found, the expert can do a quick repair. He or she may also clean the system, thereby making sure heat will be able to flow unobstructed throughout your house.
Remove Clutter from Around Your Furnace
Some people use the area around their heating system as storage space. Once you start using your heating system again, you should clear the area around it. Otherwise, you may have a fire hazard on your hands — especially if there are any combustible items nearby.
Replace Your Weather-Stripping
If you feel a cold draft near any of your windows, it means that there are air leaks. You can eliminate these air leaks by caulking and replacing weather-stripping. This will prevent cold air from leaking in. A professional HVAC expert can also do this for you.
Have Your HVAC System Inspected
A professional HVAC inspection will reveal any potential issues before they turn into severe problems. An inspector will also clean and lubricate parts as needed to help ensure that your heating and cooling system runs as efficiently as possible.
Change Your Air Filters
Make sure you check your furnace filters at least once a month. If your furnace filters become too dirty, they will begin to obstruct the airflow. This will compromise the air quality in your home, make it more difficult to heat your house properly, and cause your energy bills to go up.
