Are you ready for your holiday guests?

 In Heating, IAQ, Info, Tips

As we all prepare for the busy holiday season, take some time to ensure your home is warm and inviting for your guests. Here are a few things that can help make sure things are comfortable for you and those who may be staying with you.

1. Worried about being the last to get in the shower?

The benefits of today’s high-efficiency tankless water heaters will take away any worries you may have of running out of hot water — all while saving you space and lowering your utility bills.

Tankless water heaters last 20+ years, compared to an average lifespan of 10-12 years for tank heaters. Plus, no more worries about leaking or accidental flooding around your old tank model.

2. Anyone dealing with allergies or asthma?

Indoor air can be 30x more polluted than outside air. Make sure you have changed your air filter and cleaned your air vents. Make sure to clean both sides of the air vents where dust and other particles can accumulate.

Talk to an HVAC professional about installing an air purifier to your existing system. You can reduce bacteria, mold spores, allergens, pet dander, and other airborne pathogens and keep your family and guests breathing cleaner, healthier air.

And, don’t forget the cold winter weather combined with forced air systems can make your house dry and uncomfortable. Sore throats, chapped lips, itchy skin and sinus problems can be resolved with a humidifier that pumps moisture into your home through the existing ductwork.

4. Tight on space?

Declutter the common areas and make some space in your entryway for coats, boots, etc. If you have overnight guests, clean out a drawer and clear a bit of space in the closet. Don’t forget to leave out fresh towels and other toiletries that may have been forgotten.

4. Some like it hot.

Keep your guests comfortable day and night with a programmable thermostat. Be sure to make any adjustments as needed from your normal routine. For example, if you are not normally home during the day, you may need to adjust the temperature to accommodate guests that will remain in your home while you are out.

5. No one likes surprises.

Test and make sure your smoke detectors and CO monitors are working correctly.

Make sure to have your heating system cleaned and tuned up prior to the arrival of your guests. This ensures the safety of your HVAC system and keeps it running at optimal performance. Your HVAC tech will look for common problems like clogged air filters or burners, broken ignition or pilot, or a malfunctioning thermostat.

The holiday season is no time to have an unexpected breakdown and worry about costly repairs. Contact your nearest dealer today.
