Holiday Heating Tips
The holidays can be hectic, especially if you’re hosting events or accommodating long-term guests in your Monroe, NC, home. With so much on your plate, the last thing you want to worry about is your heating system.
Here are some of our top holiday heating tips to keep your guests warm and comfortable:
Adjust Your Thermostat
Both cooking and having more people in your home can make the entire space warmer. You’ll need to adjust your thermostat by 3 or 4 degrees to ensure your guests won’t be too hot. It may be a little cool at first, but it will warm up as your guests arrive and the party starts.
Change Your Furnace Filter
Your furnace filter is key to keeping your system running efficiently, as well as keeping your indoor air clean and pure. Before your guests arrive, check your air filter and replace it if necessary.
Use Ceiling Fans
Although it may seem like ceiling fans are designed for cooling, they can be helpful in keeping your home warm. Turn on your ceiling fans and set them to clockwise. They will force the warm air back down into your living space. This not only helps your home stay more comfortable, but it also saves on heating costs by using the warm air that’s already in your house.
Provide Space Heaters
If you have guests staying for longer periods in rooms that are typically cooler, provide them with a space heater. This will allow them to adjust the temperature without affecting the heat in the rest of your home.
