HVAC Maintenance to Perform Post-Holidays

HVAC Maintenance to Perform Post-HolidaysYour HVAC checklist of things to do deserves a second glance as the new year approaches. The fact is, the post-holiday season isn’t a leisurely time-out for home heating systems. Homes are frequently crowded around new year’s and household temperatures—not to mention indoor air quality—are harder to maintain during this season. Maintenance of heating equipment may not be your most important priority now. But it’s the key to optimum comfort as winter comes on strong, plus it also saves money and inconvenience in the long run.

Here are some items to put on your HVAC checklist during the post-holiday season and throughout the new year, too.

Change That Air Filter

As heating systems run longer hours and pull more dust and dirt out of the air at this time of year, do yourself and your guests a favor and help reduce wear and tear on system components by keeping a clean filter installed for the holidays as well as the post-holiday season. It’s an easy, cost-efficient DIY procedure.

Reconsider Thermostat Settings

The scheduled indoor temperature settings that worked for autumn weather won’t keep the home comfortable in January. Take into account the longer, colder nights and shorter days of sunshine. To keep energy costs low and the comfort level high during the holidays and afterwards, program the thermostat settings around 68 degrees during the day and approximately 10 degrees lower during the hours when everyone’s asleep.

Resolve Nagging Issues

Are there ongoing problems with the HVAC system you’ve been putting off dealing with? Get it done now, before they turn into a major headache at the worst possible time. Don’t risk being without heat and spending a few days in a motel because the house just isn’t livable. Persistent HVAC issues may be red flags warning of a total system failure and should be brought to the attention of a qualified professional contractor without delay.
