Humidifiers During the Winter Months
Is your furnace too old to handle your heating needs? Is it malfunctioning more frequently? It may be the perfect time to replace it. Don’t let your heating woes spoil the fun of the holiday season.
Ryan Heating & Air provides these 5 (five) tips you can follow to ensure your home is comfortable and safe for the holidays
Mind Those Filters
Have you replaced your air filters? It will help if you change them so that you don’t have to worry about indoor air quality or system breakdown in the middle of the winter. Replacing your air filters also offers the benefit of clean air that your family can breathe in.
Adjust Your Thermostat Setting
Adjusting your thermostat to its most efficient state can help balance your home temperature and lower your heating costs. Investing in a smart or programmable thermostat is the best way to go. These devices can be set according to your schedule or daily routine, and they can help eliminate human errors when setting temperature.
Keep Flammable Objects in Safe Areas
Things can get hectic once kids start running around as you cook in the kitchen. We suggest keeping your combustible things like blankets and wrapping paper away from heating systems, including small space heaters, to prevent fire accidents. Also, it’s essential to make a quick check before leaving for a trip.
Consider Other Ways for Heating
Use your ceiling fans and keep the shades open to help keep your home warm. On your ceiling fan, look for the switch located on its base and turn it on. The blades will rotate the opposite way after doing so. It helps circulate the warm air trapped near the ceiling downwards into the rest of the room. Lastly, keep your blinds open to let the natural light get in. These simple tasks can give your HVAC system some help, keeping it from working too hard.
Get an HVAC inspection
A heat pump, boiler, or furnace maintenance visit won’t hurt. If you haven’t scheduled an inspection yet, we highly recommend doing so before it starts to get colder, and your relatives start to come over to your house. Heating system maintenance can prevent minor issues from becoming major problems. Plus, it will give you peace of mind knowing that your system runs in peak condition all winter long.
