Furnace Tips for the Holidays


The holidays in and around Windsor are typically filled with family gatherings, comfy nights on the couch and frigid weather. The climate inside your home will dictate your comfort level throughout these months.

A reliable, well-maintained furnace is a must to beat back the cold of the holiday season and to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for holiday guests. The following is a rundown of some ways you can create the optimal climate in your home throughout the holidays.

Stay Up on General Maintenance

In addition to hiring a licensed HVAC technician, like Guaranteed Comfort Heating & Cooling in Windsor, to provide you with a full inspection and tune-up before the winter season, you can do your part to make sure your furnace is always operating at its best. This includes changing your air filter regularly and vacuuming out the dust from the inside of your furnace.

Be Methodical With How You Set Your Thermostat

This is a delicate balance between comfort, efficiency and cost savings. Generally, during the winter and holiday months, you will want to set your thermostat a little on the cooler side. A few degrees below 70 will spare your furnace from constant use.

For holiday parties, setting your thermostat low is suggested. As your guests fill up your home, the temperature will rise, and you don’t want to create a stuffy environment for guests.

Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

This is very important to the well being of everyone in your home. While regular maintenance will help you avoid a dangerous furnace, the risk for fires or carbon monoxide leaks still exist. Test your alarms to make sure that if this unlikely scenario strikes, you and your family will be able to act appropriately.
