Heating System Tips for the Holidays

When entertaining during the holiday season, you want your home to be comfortable for guests. At McFarland Indoor Comfort Services, we specialize in providing HVAC services to keep homes in Madison and St. Clair counties comfortable and energy-efficient. We recommend the following tips to help you save money and keep warm during the holiday season.

Turn Down the Thermostat

If you plan to do lots of cooking this holiday season, your oven and stovetop will generate additional heat. Turn down the thermostat to avoid overheating your home. If you will be hosting guests, your friends’ and family members’ physical presence will also generate extra heat. By lowering your thermostat, you will not only avoid excess heat and stuffiness, but your energy bill will also be a little lower.

Schedule Your Inspection Before Temperatures Drop

You should ideally have your HVAC system inspected once a year. If you haven’t already had your inspection, the holiday season is ideal. By allowing one of our technicians to evaluate your system, you can avoid unnecessarily high heating bills and untimely breakdowns.

Change Your Air Filter to Keep Air Quality High

Your furnace’s air filter removes dirt, allergens, and other impurities from the air that circulate in your home. Because your filter literally has a very dirty job, it is important that you have it changed regularly to keep it performing effectively. Give your guests the gift of fresh indoor air by ensuring your furnace has a fresh filter. Doing so will also prevent overworking your heating system and contributing to excessive wear.
