21 Nov Thanksgiving Heating Tips
Thanksgiving is a few days away, and if you’re hosting your friends and family, there’s no doubt that you’ve already started preparing your home. Since the weather is chilly, it’s important to keep your home warm so that your guests are comfortable. Make sure your heating system is running on maximum efficiency with these holiday heating tips:
Clear The Dust:
Did you know that dust can be very detrimental to your heating system? The more you dust, the less dust there is floating around your house, passing through your filter and duct work. Giving your home a thorough dusting prior to turkey day will help eliminate allergies and keep your guests warm. Be sure to also grab a towel and wet it lightly and run it alongside all of your furniture. The dust will stick to the towel and will ensure that it’s not re-released into the air, settling in your heating system.
Change Your Air Filter
Changing your air filter is very simple and will do wonders for the effectiveness of your system. It’s important to replace your air filter every time they are dirty. Check them once a month to see if they need replacing, which will keep your furnace working at it’s maximum efficiency and will help prolong their lifespan.
Lower Your Thermostat
Between cooking the perfect meal all day and the fullness of your house from friends and family, the temperature of your home is bound to rise without touching your thermostat. Keeping your thermostat slightly lower will not only help you save money and energy, but won’t put as much of a strain on your HVAC system.
