Before your friends and family can gather at your Archdale, North Carolina, home this holiday season, you need to prepare your home for the upcoming holiday party. While you may be thinking about cleaning and cooking, part of your preparation should be making your HVAC and your home system energy efficient. Below are some HVAC holiday tips to help you reduce the amount of energy being used in your home.
Get a Furnace Tuneup
One of the best ways to keep your energy costs down is to schedule regular HVAC system maintenance. Your HVAC system has to work harder when it’s not serviced often, and this requires more electricity. A technician will perform maintenance tasks to ensure your system will run well for not only the holidays but in the long-term.
Change the HVAC Filter
Even the smallest maintenance tasks can have a big difference. Changing the filter in your HVAC system can help it perform better as it can handle airflow without any blockages. Not only can changing your filter help your heating system run more efficiently, but it also helps with your indoor air quality.
Get Someone to Help While You’re Away
If you plan on leaving over the holidays, it’s a good idea to have someone come in and check over your home. An unexpected cold snap, while you’re gone, can spell trouble for your pipes or other problems. Rather than coming home to an issue that grows with each passing hour of not being noticed, someone will be there to address it quicker.
Set Your HVAC Thermostat
The holiday season often means that it’s you have turned on the heat. Be sure to set your thermostat to the right temperature to keep your home comfortable. An extra step you can take to save energy is to upgrade to a smart thermostat.
