The holidays draw in family and friends in order for a festive celebration. Whether they be from across town, or across the country, having numerous guests in your home can take a huge toll on your HVAC system. Between the amount of work your air filter will be doing, and the differences in temperature preference, you’re sure to have an additional bit of stress. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.
North Central Florida Air Conditioning, Inc. is the Top Rated Local® HVAC professional providing heating and cooling services to the Gainesville area. We have the pools you need to minimize your spendings this holiday season and we’re going to provide you with a few tips that will help make your holiday parties more manageable.
One of the cheapest, and most effective ways to warm your home without having to use a bunch of energy is by opening your curtains and blinds during the day and letting the sun warm your home naturally. Depending on how many windows you have in your home, this method will provide incredible amounts of warmth to your home without ever having to raise the set temperature on your thermostat.
Another great way to maintain the temperature of your home is by closing off rooms that aren’t being used. If you are having a party that is on the lower level of your home, closing off any upstairs bedrooms or studies will help keep the warm, or cool, air within those rooms so that energy isn’t being wasted to constantly reach the set temperature.
The last tip that we have is one that very few people know of, and if they do, they rarely make use of it. Switching the direction that your fan is spinning will help push warm air down while the cool air will rise. Some fans even have a winter switch that will circulate the air back down. This small move will make a world of difference.
Utilizing these three tips will help make managing the temperature in your home so much easier this holiday season! For any maintenance appointments or repair services, contact North Central Florida Heating & Air!
