If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, you’ve got a lot on your plate—decorating, cooking, cleaning and everything else a full house entails. One duty that might have skipped your mind, however, is making sure your HVAC system is prepared to be energy efficient on Thanksgiving Day.

As the number of people in your home increases, so does the need for your HVAC system to remain energy efficient. Maintaining a moderate temperature gets harder as your guest count goes up. Fortunately, there are a few easy things you can do to make sure your HVAC is prepared.

Check Your Air Filter and Vents

One of the most important things you can do to ensure that your HVAC system maintains its quality performance on Thanksgiving is to change your air filter. A dirty filter means your unit will work much harder to heat or cool your home (depending on what the Texas weather throws at us). Additionally, inspect and clean your air vents to improve your indoor air quality.

Consider an Air Filtration System

Autumn brings allergens to the Fort Worth area, which can make you and your guests sneezing, stuffy, or tired. The right filtration system can help not only make your HVAC more energy efficient, but also remove allergens from the air in your home.

Schedule a Service Appointment

Schedule a service appointment so an HVAC professional can inspect your system and give it a tune-up, if necessary. A regularly-serviced HVAC unit will last longer and give you better performance than an HVAC system that isn’t consistently maintained. At North Tarrant Heat & Air, we offer several affordable maintenance plans to keep your HVAC system running well. To schedule an appointment, fill out our online form or call us at 817-435-1447.
