The holiday season is right around the corner, and as you’re preparing your favorite dishes and shopping for the perfect gifts for your loved ones, one thing you need to keep in mind is how to prepare your HVAC system for all of the festivities. We understand that properly maintaining your heating system is the last thing on your mind, especially if you’re preparing your home for company. That being said, it’s never too late to have your HVAC system inspected, as it could save you from having to make costly repairs at the worst possible time. In part one of this series, we discussed changing your filters and using alternate methods for heating your home. As we continue with part two, we will provide you with a couple more ways to ensure that your HVAC is properly maintained this holiday season.

Dust Your Home
As you clean your home in preparation for visitors, don’t forget to dust! Believe it or not, but dusting can actually help your heating system function more efficiently. When you have dust in your home, it can be disturbed by a number of different things that you do every day. If the dust becomes disturbed, it will enter the air and get filtered through your ductwork. Not only can dust cause problems if left in your ducts, but it can also accumulate in your filters and make your heating system work harder than it has to. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to dust thoroughly before company arrives — both your guests and your heating system will appreciate it!
Lower Your Thermostat
There is a lot that you need to do to prepare for your holiday parties, and you will most likely spend a good amount of time in your kitchen making some of your favorite dishes. In part one of our series, we talked about how having extra bodies in your home and using your oven are likely to generate a lot of heat. With that in mind, one way that you can help your heating system work more efficiently is to lower your thermostat. It’s unlikely that you will even need your heating system during the festivities, and lowering the thermostat gives it a chance to take a break without turning it off completely.

If you’re worried about your heating system calling it quits at the worst possible moment, you may want to hire a professional HVAC contractor to come inspect your system before the holidays are in full swing.
