HVAC Tips for the Holidays

December 20, 2019


This winter holiday season is expected to be packed by a ton of indoor activities. Chances are that you will have to accommodate a couple of your friends and visitors in your home. The last thing you would want to expect is having a house with filthy air as a result of poor air conditioning. At Scott-Lee Heating Company, we have been through many holidays and have the experience to advise you about how to prepare your HVAC system for the holidays.

Change Your Filters

In case you changed your air filters a few weeks ago, then it is fine. However, if your air conditioning filters have not been changed for over a month, then this is your opportunity to change them and to boost your indoor air quality. Luckily, changing the filters is not an overly complicated task, as it can be done within a couple of minutes.

Go for a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats have become a major trend in HVAC systems today. They enable you to adjust indoor temperatures automatically, depending on the kind of activities within the house. For example, when your friends come over, and you hurdle together in one room, temperatures are highly likely to rise. The programmable thermostat takes control by lowering the temperatures to a preset value.

Lock Up Your Windows

One of the common mistakes that we have seen over the years in cases where people leave their windows and doors open during the winter holidays. This can hinder the functioning of your HVAC system in terms of heating or cooling your home. You should endeavor to lock up your windows to maintain the desired indoor temperatures.

Do a Thorough Maintenance

The long winter holiday season is expected to have you indoors most of the time. You will, therefore, heavily rely on your HVAC equipment to maintain good air quality. At Scott-Lee Heating Company, we always recommend homeowners to consider scheduling thorough maintenance before the winter holiday season is in full swing.
