Your HVAC system will likely be working overtime this holiday season, so you will need to make sure it's in good working order. Much of this is basic HVAC maintenance, but it's especially important that you keep up with it for the sake of your family and any guests you have in your home.
Change Your HVAC Filter
After your HVAC installation in Braselton, GA, you should be checking your air filter regularly and change it every three months or as often as needed. Your filter helps reduce the amount of dust, pollen, and other pollutants in your home's air, and it will be working overtime if you have a Christmas tree or burn candles for holiday gatherings. It’s best to seek out professional HVAC services for this to ensure efficiency.
Schedule a Service Call
Ideally, your HVAC system should be serviced at least once a year, preferably either in the spring or the fall when the weather is at its mildest. Having a contractor look over your system regularly can help you avoid a costly HVAC repair bill by finding problems before they get too far out of hand. Even if it turns out that there is nothing wrong with your HVAC system and you don't need repairs, you'll still have peace of mind for the holidays.
Turn Down the Heat
It sounds counterintuitive to turn down the heat in December, but if you're going to host a gathering this year, it's actually better to adjust your thermostat. Since you will have enough guests that will warm up the space, you don't need to raise the temperature any higher. Not only will this keep your guests comfortable, but it will take some of the pressure off a stressed heating system and thus lessening the likelihood of needing HVAC services.
