Thanksgiving will soon be here. In the coming weeks, you may be making grocery lists, planning your side dishes, making pumpkin centerpieces, and figuring out where to sit Uncle Leroy. One thing you may not have thought about yet is getting your HVAC System ready for Thanksgiving.
Here in Athens, Thanksgiving weather can be unpredictable. But the experts at Clockwork Heating and Air have you covered no matter the temperatures outside. Here are a few things to think about in between finding your grandmother’s dressing recipe and making up the guest bedroom for your Cousin Louise.
Check your air filters
Keeping your air filter changed regularly can help with many things. First, having a clean filter will promote healthy airflow. This will inevitably help your system work more efficiently. Secondly, all the cooking and company surrounding Thanksgiving will introduce all kinds of foreign particles into your ventilation system. Check and change those air filters before you thaw the turkey.
Dust the house and the vents
When you pull out your fine china that is only for the holidays, go ahead and give that china cabinet a good dusting. While you’re at it, dust all your surfaces and vents. This will help reduce the dust in the vents and will improve the overall air quality for you and your guests.
Get a heat system tune up
Imagine your house if full of guests and you are up to your elbows in cranberries and turkey drippings. Your guests are on their way and your heater stops working? One way to prevent that is to get a maintenance check, or tune up, a few weeks before. The NATE-certified technicians at Clockwork Heating and Air will go over your entire system to find any lurking issues. We’ll clean off internal components to improve energy transfer and perform adjustments that will lead to optimum functionality. Any moving parts will be inspected, and we’ll make sure all the safety systems are functional.
