The weather might be frightful outside, but your home should be warm and inviting to guests this holiday season. Here are some ways to ensure your heating system keeps your home cozy and ready for entertaining.
Schedule Heating Maintenance
One of the best ways to ensure your home’s heating system is ready for winter temperatures is to enroll in a maintenance program. Not only does it ensure your manufacturer warranty is valid, but it also identifies issues that could become larger problems.
Regular heating maintenance can also ensure your heating system is more efficient and less likely to fail and leave guests in the cold.
Check for Clean Air Filters
Holiday entertaining can sometimes mean having guests in rooms you use less often. Replace dirty air filters helps to ensure proper airflow to all rooms, so you don’t have uneven temperatures throughout the home.
Adjust Your Thermostat
Programmable thermostats are a great way to make sure your home is at the desired temperature at the desired time.
You can easily set times to help your home’s heating system be more efficient by lowering the temperature when the holiday fun is at your neighbor’s house and ensuring your home is comfortable when it’s time for you to host.
Seal Drafty Windows & Doors
Most home heat loss comes from doors and windows with broken seals. Don’t let your guests feel a draft at your holiday gathering. There are lots of DIY ways to seal your drafty window or doors.
Perform an Energy Audit
Inadequate insulation in your attic and cracks through structural gaps can lead to air leaks, making your home’s indoor temperature uncomfortable. This could also lead to poor indoor air quality from mold and mildew that can grow inside your compromised areas.
You can find spots where your home is leaking air via a blower door test. You can also hire a professional to measure your insulation levels.
