It’s that time of year again – the holiday season is just around the corner! Whether you’ll be hosting for a house full of guests or quietly celebrating in your PJs, make safety and comfort for all your loved ones a priority this winter.

Avoid adding any more tasks to your list by planning ahead. Ensure smooth holiday festivities by following these safety tips:

  • Struggling to take a deep breath? It is common for the same musty and stuffy air to circulate your home when the windows and doors are constantly closed. The quality of indoor air is likely to be reduced because of this. It is recommended to keep an eye on your air filters. Changing your air filters monthly will greatly reduce the number of allergens and dust in your home.
  • Decorate your home with care! Inspect your holiday lights before installation. Any broken sockets or frayed wires call for a replacement. Also make sure to turn off the lights whenever you are leaving your home or going to sleep. Lights overheating are one of the main causes of holiday fires. To minimize fire hazards, even more, do not leave candles unattended.
  • Avoid a holiday disaster with regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance. Professionals from Heat Relief will check for any gas and electrical degradation. It doesn’t stop there – they also make sure that all units of your HVAC system are operating efficiently. Doing so prevents bigger expenses down the road.
  • Declutter the area around your HVAC units. Keep all objects at least a couple of feet away from your water heater and furnace. This makes it possible for safe operation and proper circulation throughout the house, and for your Heat Relief technician to access your system.
