HVAC Checklist for the Holidays

HVAC Checklist for the Holidays

It’s safe to say that decking the halls won’t be quite as jolly if you’re HVAC system suddenly stops working. Whether you’re celebrating the holidays in a balmy climate or a frigid one, you should have an HVAC checklist for the holidays so you don’t turn from merry and bright to uncomfortably warm or cold. To help you cross this important task off your holiday list, we’ve put together the top 4 things you should be doing before the festivities get rolling this year.

Give your thermostat a once over

Something as simple as dead or weak batteries can prevent your thermostat from functioning properly. Test your thermostat and make sure you change out the batteries to keep your system from overworking itself because of a poorly functioning thermostat. You may even want to upgrade to a programmable thermostat to make things even more efficient.

Ring in the holidays with new air filters

When your filters are dirty, your HVAC system has to work harder to achieve the optimal temperature. Be proactive and check your air filters every month and change them regularly to keep your system functioning smoothly and to improve the air quality in your home.

Check batteries in smoke detectors

You’ll probably be doing a lot more cooking around the holidays so be sure your smoke detectors are working and test the batteries. And don’t forget to check the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector!

Schedule routine maintenance

Head off any issues rolling into the new year by scheduling your routine maintenance. Not only will it help keep your home comfortable throughout the holiday season, but it can decrease your energy costs and prevent any major issues.
