Get Your Home & Your HVAC System Ready For The Holiday Season
Can you believe Thanksgiving is already over? And now a whole ‘nother host of secular and religious holidays are soon to be upon us that will have your home hopping with gatherings of friends and family, food and fun. Are you ready?
If you’re anything like our family here at Hyde’s, the answer is a resounding NO! We’re busy planning our Thanksgiving feast and assigning chores to prepare our home for the big day, but there’s plenty yet to do.
Aside from the housekeeping portion of preparing your home for the holidays, you need to also think about your home comfort systems. Are your HVAC and electrical systems ready for the influx of people and parties? Follow these tips from our team, and your home will stay cozy and comfortable all holiday season long!
Make Sure You’re Up To Date On Your HVAC Maintenance
The most important step you can take to ensure that your home stays comfortable through the holiday season is to make sure your HVAC unit is working exactly as it should. If you haven’t had Hyde’s come out to perform seasonal maintenance yet, do so now! Not only will your HVAC unit thank you with great energy-efficiency, but you’ll also be guaranteed not to experience an inconvenient and uncomfortable breakdown while hosting guests.
Take Your Indoor Air Quality Into Account
With extra people in your house for parties and long weekends and additional food prep for your holiday feasts, chances are good your home’s indoor air quality will suffer. Improve matters by changing your air filters before your guests arrive and throwing open your windows to air out the house when things get too stuffy. We can also set you up with a state-of-the-art air cleaning system to keep your home’s air clean and healthy this holiday season.
Have Your Electrical System Inspected
Your electrical system is the most likely system to be overlooked during the holidays, yet gets the biggest workout. From Christmas lights to guests plugging in their electronic devices, the holiday season is one of the busiest times of year for electric usage. In order to avoid overloading your home’s electrical system and getting left in the dark during Thanksgiving dinner, have your electrical system inspected for deficiencies. Your inspection results can tell you whether you need to upgrade your electrical panel, which circuits can handle a greater load than others and even which outlet is the best one for setting up your Christmas tree!
