How to keep your home comfortable for the holidays

It won’t be long now. The bickering. The uncomfortable conversations. The sudden, oppressively long lines for the shower. Yes, the holidays are here.

While we can’t grant you any relief from your uncle’s political opinions, we can give you some tips on how to make your home a little more comfortable.


Clean Your Air Filters

You can never go wrong when you’re looking out for your air quality. Before your house gets a little more crowded, make sure your HVAC system’s air filters are clean. It’ll help with dust, allergies and overall HVAC efficiency.


You know when the best time for HVAC maintenance is? Before there’s a problem. As anyone who’s been through it can tell you – the holidays are the worst time of year for your heat to go out.

Plan Ahead In The Kitchen

This tip can go a super long way. Try to cook as much as possible ahead of time to avoid heating up the house unnecessarily. Kitchen heat, plus added bodies, can lead to some pretty toasty situations.

Lock Your Windows

This will create a tighter seal around your windows to keep in the warm air. It will also help prevent guests from cracking a window when you’re not looking!

Install A Humidifier

Humidifiers will retain heat so you can set your thermostat lower and make your home more comfortable. Humidifiers are also a great way to eliminate dry air and reduce static electricity – ensuring your holiday guests remain comfortable.

Become A Fan

Many people forget about this hidden gem. Most ceiling fans have a reverse setting that will push the rising warm air back down to ground level. Ceiling fans also help circulate the air, keeping a more even temperature.

Use Space Heaters

If your guests are going to be spending time in a cooler part of your home, consider adding space heaters to even out the temperature.
