Change Your Filters
We know that you’re probably tired of hearing it, but we can’t stress enough the importance of changing your filters on a regular basis. Not only will replacing your old filters with new ones help improve the air quality in your home, but it will also help your heating system work more efficiently. If your HVAC is trying to pump air into your home through dirty filters, this can cause it to work too hard, decreasing the lifespan of your entire system. Additionally, with all of the extra bodies entering your home for all of the holiday fun, you want to ensure that your house will maintain a comfortable temperature without charging you a small fortune in energy costs.
Try Other Methods for Heating Your Home
If you’re really worried about the heating bill getting too high during the holiday season, consider adopting alternate methods for controlling the temperature. Keep in mind that if you’re doing a lot of cooking or inviting numerous people to your home, there’s a good chance that your home will stay pretty warm on its own. Body heat and the heat coming from your oven may be enough to make you sweat. That being said, if worse comes to worse and hours of baking and all of your friends aren’t enough to keep you warm, it may be time to start a fire in the fireplace or break out your favorite blankets and sweaters.
