HVAC – Prepare For The Holidays
The Christmas season is the most festive time of the year. Of all the things you are looking forward to, an HVAC system failure is probably not one of them. During this time, it is difficult to find an HVAC technician, and it is necessary to focus on system maintenance before guests arrive.
Here is what you can do to prevent unwanted surprises.
Inspect your furnace
You can conduct a visual inspection. Look for cracks or holes in the ductwork or valves connected to the furnace. Ensure that there is no dust and debris. Also, unusual condensation or corrosion is a sign that a problem is on its way.
Clean the vents
Ducts can get clogged for any number of reasons. Cleaning the air ducts is not a job that you should do on your own. Contact a certified technician with the right tools and equipment.
Check the filters
Different manufacturers have different recommendations for the frequency of filter changes. Changing filters periodically helps avoid clogs which can lead to a hard-working and less energy-efficient system and increases indoor air quality. When you have more people in your home during the holidays, indoor air quality is a priority.
Use the fireplace
Use a fireplace more frequently. In addition to heating, it also creates a warm and romantic atmosphere. It can also save you a lot of money on your energy bill.
Schedule a yearly tune-up of your HVAC system and enjoy the holiday season with your loved ones.
