Whether you plan on entertaining a house full of family and friends this holiday season or sinking into the couch every night to watch a holiday movie, the comfort of you and your guests hinges on the climate inside of your home. With outdoor temperatures hovering around freezing during the winter months in the Alpharetta, Georgia, area, your furnace needs to be in tip-top condition to keep everything warm and cozy inside your home. At 4 Seasons Heating & Air, our licensed HVAC professionals provide maintenance and repair work for furnaces, in addition to installing brand new furnaces. When it comes to heating your home this holiday season, here are some helpful tips.
Start the Season Off With a Tune-up and Checking for Drafts
Holidays or not, when cold weather strikes, you want to make sure that your furnace can perform as efficiently as possible. A professional tune-up can iron out inefficiencies in your furnace, and a comprehensive inspection of your home for drafts can allow you to address them. This means better insulation for your home. Plus, your furnace won’t have to work overtime.
Heating a Home Filled With People
The comfort of your guests is a major concern when entertaining. Maintaining the right temperature can be tricky when your home is filled with the added body heat of more people.
You will want to set your thermostat to a lower temperature setting in anticipation of the added activity of holiday gatherings warming up your house. Also, you may consider alternative heat sources to warm up local areas of your home. A fireplace is a great touch for the holiday season and can effectively provide the warmth your house needs.
Think About Air Quality
During a time of year when you can’t open a window and welcome in the fresh air, the quality of your home’s air is important.
To enhance the air quality in your home, make sure to replace your HVAC system’s air filter and consider investing in air duct cleaning if you haven’t in a few years. If you have special air quality needs, a professional HVAC technician can outfit your home with the appropriate solutions.
