With the holidays now upon us here in 2018, it’s not too late to make sure your HVAC system is in tip-top shape for your Lowcountry get-togethers.
With all the madness that can surround your festivities, checking your heating and air system is an easy thing to overlook so to help you out here are 5 quick things you can do to ensure a comfortable Lowcountry holiday season.
We’ve posted about the importance of changing out air filters in several useful posts over the years, and it’s equally as important during the holidays.
With guests coming to your home you never know what allergies they may have or if they’re sensitive to dust.
While you probably can’t keep them from all the dust in your home, one easy way to help them out is to put in a new set of air filters.
Mostly for people with ductless mini-split air conditioning systems, make sure to teach any overnight guests about operating their individual room settings.
Though most mini-splits are easy to use, going over the settings quick can save you some late-night “how do I use this?” questions.
If you’re planning on having several guests this year, make sure to adjust your thermostat down a few notches to account for the increased body heat in your home.
Now if you’re traveling on the other hand, make sure to adjust your thermostat to operate at a lower setting to help you save on energy costs while you’re away.
If you’re hosting a holiday party this year, you’ll most likely have guests coming and going throughout the day. Whether they’re just dropping in or making an unexpected grocery run, guests will be opening and closing doors as they rotate through.
To help save your HVAC system from constantly adjusting when people come and go, try to feed people through an entry/exit door that is farthest from your thermostat.
Even with the holidays upon us there’s still time to schedule a quick tune-up even between your holiday events.
Be sure to contact your local HVAC team and let them know the best time for them to make a quick inspection of your system.
