Heating Tips For Hosting This Holiday Season

With the holiday season upon us, you may be gearing up to host your annual family gathering. It's likely that the decor and dinner menu are on the top of your mind, but don't forget to think about your guests safety and comfort!

Here are a few things to remember when it comes to your heating system this holiday season:

Make Sure Your Furnace Is Ready
Have you had your annual heating tune-up? Performing routine maintenance on your furnace is the best way to ensure it's proper operation. Don't risk having an HVAC break down while hosting your friends and family this year.

Check Your CO and Fire Detectors
Test the batteries in your carbon monoxide and fire detectors. The extra heating and cooking going on in your home during the holidays allows for a greater chance for appliance-related incidents. Ensure the safety of your family and friends by having fully-operational detectors.

Consider A Programmable Thermostat
Expecting a large group this year? You may want to consider programming your thermostat to a lower temperature. A crowded room will have enough body heat to raise the temperature without the extra assistance of your furnace.

Make Use Of Ceiling Fans
To help keep your home comfortable, set your ceiling fans to reverse mode to help push warm air that has risen to the ceiling back down to sitting level.

From all of us at Logan Services, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season!
