Polestar Heating Cooling Hvac Tips For The Holidays

The holiday season is here in Kansas City! Whether you're hosting a Christmas celebration or gearing up for a New Year's bash, Polestar Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning has your HVAC needs covered. Read on for essential tips to keep your home comfortable and your guests in high spirits during these festive occasions.

1.      Optimize Airflow

With a house full of guests, proper airflow becomes crucial. Make sure your vents are unobstructed and clean, allowing for optimal distribution of warm or cool air. Consider strategically placing fans to keep the air circulating, ensuring a comfortable environment in every corner of your home.

2.      Adjust Your Thermostat Downward

Resist the temptation to crank up the thermostat too high. Despite the chilly weather outside, the additional warmth generated by a few extra guests should naturally maintain a comfortable atmosphere inside your home. Aim for a thermostat setting between 68 to 70 degrees during the winter months. Rest assured, when you're surrounded by company, the temperature will feel perfectly warm and inviting.

3.      Eliminate Dust in Your Living Space

Enhance the effectiveness of your HVAC system and the quality of your indoor air by giving your home a thorough dusting. Wiping away dust from furniture and floors results in less dust in the air. This not only contributes to improved air quality but may also prolong the lifespan of your furnace filter, as there will be less dust circulating through your ducts and vents.

4.      Change Your Furnace Filter

When it comes to furnace filters, it's crucial to inspect them monthly, even if you don't replace them that frequently. Regular checks not only ensure the efficient operation of your heating system but also contribute to enhanced air quality in your home—creating a healthier and more comfortable environment for your holiday guests.
