Halloween Heating Tips for Homeowners

Halloween Heating Tips for Homeowners

At Rockwall One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating, we understand that high utility bills are way scarier for homeowners than spooky Halloween costumes.

As our Halloween treat, here are some tips in keeping your home cozy and comfortable this All Saints’ Eve:

Get Annual Maintenance

It is always a good thing to check your heating system regularly and not only when you experience problems. If you do not know how to do it, schedule a maintenance plan with a certified technician from a qualified HVAC company.

A thorough inspection will ensure that your system works in its optimum performance throughout the season. At the same time, it will also catch minor issues before they turn into bigger problems.

Stick to a Consistent Temperature

While there are different ideal temperature settings for a thermostat’s optimum performance, it is still a matter of personal preference. The perfect temperature for your home always depends on your comfort.

However, we advise you to avoid changing temperatures frequently as it makes it harder for your heating system to operate.

Change Your Air Filters Regularly

Maintaining a clean air filter does not only promote healthier air, but it also prolongs your system’s lifespan, saving you money in the process. It’s best to replace your air filter every three months or whenever necessary. Please know that clean filters can help you save you up to five to fifteen percent of energy.

Insulate windows before the winter

During the summer, it is advisable to keep your windows open so the sunlight can help heat your home. However, during the cold season, windows should be adequately insulated to prevent heated air from escaping, while keeping the cool air where it belongs. Doing so helps maintain an ideal humidity level and promotes better air quality.
