Furnace Tips for the Holidays

Holiday parties and get-togethers can be both fun and memorable. Rarely is it possible to get so many friends and family in the same house for the same joyous event. To make sure everyone stays happy, the temperature inside the home should be appropriate. There are some smart ways to run a furnace during the holidays. Let’s take a look at some tips.

Make Sure You Have the Right Thermostat

A running theme here involves taking steps in advance of the holiday party. Don’t cut things too close because you want enough time to make sure the work is done. Upgrading a thermostat might be a valuable way to keep the interior temperature at the preferred level. A high-tech, modern thermostat can adjust temperature levels quickly and without much trouble. Some may even work with your smartphone adding further conveniences.

Clean Out the Ducts

Dirty ducts aren’t beneficial to your guests. You don’t want guests in your home breathing in poor-quality air. For the same reason, you want to change a dirty filter if necessary. Besides addressing air quality, cleaning the air ducts could help you avoid some problems with the furnace. Running the furnace when there’s tons of dirt and dust in the ducts could put more strain on the system. Taking extra care of the heater can require calling in professionals. Meridian and McCall residents can ask for help from A-1 Heating and Air Conditioning. Heating and air conditioning repair work and duct cleaning are just some of the services we offer.

Double-Check the Detectors

Safety must be a top priority during holiday parties and, for that matter, throughout the year. With your furnace, concerns over fire and carbon monoxide exist. Hopefully, your home has both a smoke and carbon monoxide detector. If so, don’t assume they work without checking the devices. Run a quick test to make sure they work long before guests arrive.
