HVAC Tips to Deal with Extreme Cold

HVAC tips to deal with extreme cold

“Happy Holidays,” Minnesota says as it dishes out another round of cold weather and plans for January’s frost. Sadly, you can’t get rid of winter like you can those unwanted gifts from Uncle Ned. Read our blog for HVAC tips to deal with extreme cold.

Maintenance

Don’t take your heating system for granted. If you haven’t yet, schedule a furnace tune-up to make sure your unit is properly serviced by a professional technician. And oh by golly, please replace your filter. A dirty filter puts stress on your system and can damage equipment.

Proper Airflow

If Santa can’t make it down a clogged chimney, the conditioned air in your ducts won’t be able to flow through blocked supply registers. Make sure your vents are free of obstructions. Move furniture and rugs away from registers so the warm air your furnace produces can circulate throughout the home. If you’re noticing a musty scent or stuffy rooms, an air exchanger could rid your home of pollutants and provide proper ventilation.

Programmable Thermostat

If you won’t be home for Christmas, count on a programmable thermostat to maintain optimal temperatures so your pipes and pets don’t freeze. You can remotely monitor a smart thermostat from your cell phone, a convenient feature if you need an excuse to step away from that awkward conversation at the holiday dinner table.

Gas Fireplace

When the weather outside is frightful, the inviting, warm glow of a fireplace could be so delightful. You can make any room in your home feel luxurious without the maintenance and hazards involved with a real wood-burning hearth. Install a gas fireplace to create a welcoming, cozy space for your friends and family to gather.

Other Remedies

Don’t crank the heat. Instead, set the thermostat to a lower temperature setting so it doesn’t constantly run to keep your home cozy. Put on some extra layers, a pair of fuzzy socks, and sip some hot chocolate or nog to keep chattering teeth at bay. You could also consider installing a whole house humidifier for added comfort.
