6 Heating Tips To Heat Up Your Valentine's Day

6 Heating Tips To Heat Up Your Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is a perfect time to get cozy with that special someone. You shouldn't be left feeling uncomfortable in a cold home. And let's face it - nothing warms your heart quite like a furnace. Here are the top 6 heating tips to really heat up your Valentine's Day this year.

1. Turn Down The Heat

As things heat up this Valentine's Day, consider turning the heat down. This can give your HVAC system a much needed break while also helping you save on energy costs. Not only that, but you can keep warm by cuddling up under some blankets with that special someone - or sitting in front of the fireplace instead.

2. Dust Around Your Home

Breathing in dust, dirt, dander and other debris can really kill the mood. Make sure you are dusting around your air vents, registers, and other dust-prone areas of your home before your Valentine's Day celebration. Dirt and dust can reduce airflow and clog your vents. This decreases the efficiency of your unit and also increases your energy usage.

3. Move Your Furniture

Why not rearrange some furniture this Valentine's Day? Furniture, such as your couch, end tables, lamps, and more, can block airflow and create uneven, cool temperatures in your home when they cover your vents and registers. Make sure you and your loved one remain comfortable, and make sure your furniture is blocking any vents or registers in your home.

4. Use A Smart Thermostat

Set the mood with a smart thermostat. With a smart thermostat, you can make sure the temperature in your home is as comfortable as can be without having to keep going back to change it. If you need to leave your house for any reason, a smart thermostat also allows you to set the temperature automatically so you can save on energy. Not only that, but you can preset it to a certain temperature before you arrive back home so you're always walking into a warm and cozy home.

5. Seal The Drafts In Your Home

Do you feel cold drafts in your home? You could have some gaps around your doors or windows letting that cool air inside your home. You can easily seal these drafts by caulking or weather-stripping. When you have air drafts in your home, your furnace has to work harder to heat your home as it competes with the additional cool air coming inside. Not only can sealing air drafts keep your home more comfortable, but it can also help you save some money on energy bills.

6. Schedule Maintenance

You should plan to schedule maintenance bi-annually (once for your air conditioner and once for your furnace). Maintenance helps ensure your HVAC unit runs smoothly and efficiently. Professional maintenance can help prevent costly repairs, reduce your energy consumption, prolong the life of your system, and also improve your indoor air quality. And let's be real - love should be the only thing in your air this Valentine's Day. Schedule professional maintenance today to ensure that really is the only thing in your home!
