HVAC Halloween safety tips
Fall is officially here. It is time to cover yourself with a blanket and enjoy the rain outside, and with Halloween just around the corner, we all have much to look forward to. One of the favorite times of the year comes with a ton of festive and spooky decorations, so it’s important to take crucial steps to ensure that you don’t damage the HVAC unit when decorating.
Keep your vents free from blockage
We know how enjoyable decorating your home at this time of the year is. Make sure not to block any of the system’s vents because this may cause airflow reduction, which can result in higher utility bills.
Don’t cover the outdoor unit with decorations
When decorating outside the house, make sure that you don’t cover the outdoor unit, and make sure that you don’t put items too close to it. It can negatively affect its performance, and small decorations may get stuck inside the unit and cause a breakdown.
Be careful when using decorative lighting
If you prefer to use decorative lighting, keep safety in mind. Not only that it can cause fire and other electrical hazards, but it can also affect your HVAC system. Be careful when connecting decorative lighting displays.
Don’t place candles near the HVAC unit
While candles can create a spooky atmosphere, you should not place them too close to your HVAC unit. Keep candles elsewhere from flammable objects or appliances that generate heat. If you need to place candles close to any of these items, replace them with battery-operated candles or lights.
