Thanksgiving is coming up, so it’s time to prepare your home’s HVAC system for your family and guests!
Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away, which means that northern Utah households are beginning to prepare for parties, family gatherings, and the upcoming holiday season.
And as exciting as this time of year always is, it’s still pretty stressful for a lot of people who need to prepare their HVAC system for increased usage and colder winter temperatures.
It’s no secret how northern Utah has extreme winters, so below we’re sharing some tips to help you get your HVAC system prepared for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season!
Heat Pump System Maintenance
Heat pumps have become wildly popular throughout our region in recent years, and this is partly because they’re an incredibly efficient way to cool and heat up homes throughout each season. As we get deeper into November, your property’s heat pump system will undergo below average temperatures—which can pose issues if neglected.
There are certain settings that you can shift your heat pump into when you think you’re going to need extra heating output during the holiday season, and you can always switch your settings as warm as necessary while cold fronts move through our area.
This is the perfect time of year to get your home’s heat pump system professionally examined by one of our HVAC technicians, because we’ll be able to let you know if any lingering issues could pose significant dilemmas later in the winter!
A lot of people will adjust their thermostat settings around this time of year in order to maintain proper indoor air comfort and energy efficiency. But whenever extreme winter weather rolls through in the form of severe snowstorms, you could leave yourself susceptible when your thermostat isn’t quite ready for increased necessity.
This is why we generally recommend that you keep your thermostat at your desired temperature for longer periods of time, particularly when you know that extreme weather is imminent.
Our team supports countless homes and businesses with thermostat checkups during the fall months, and our experts are also here to help you upgrade your system’s thermostat to smart thermostats. These tech-savvy advancements are all the rage throughout the HVAC industry, and they help people manage their home’s settings through the easy use of a smartphone app.
So whether you already have a smart thermostat or not, we’re here to help you get this crucial component prepped and ready for yet another harsh northern Utah winter!
Air Filter & Ductwork Inspections
Clean air is important to everyone, and you should prioritize the overall quality of your home’s indoor air. No one wants their furnace to overwork itself due to clogged air filters or pesky ductwork issues, which is why it’s important to inspect these aspects of your HVAC system on a yearly basis.
Not only should you simply check your air filters and switch them out if it’s the right time, but you should also invest in a comprehensive ductwork inspection from experienced industry specialists.
Keeping your home warm this winter is an easy priority to keep in mind, but we all tend to forget about just how important our ductwork is toward improving and maintaining indoor air quality!
Don’t Forget About Your Plumbing System!
Frozen pipes are a serious nightmare for northern Utah homeowners, and all of us at the Beehive Family have seen countless frozen pipes in the past. It’s an unfortunate part of living in such an intense climate like northern Utah, but everyone has to be extra careful about the integrity of their piping systems throughout the holidays.
Getting a thorough plumbing inspection is crucial for a household’s Thanksgiving preparations as well, because no one wants plumbing repairs to hamper the mode during holiday parties!
