Keep Your HVAC Safe When Leaving Town For The Holidays
Leaving town for the holidays? There’s a lot of things to put on your to-do list before you head out the door. Stop the mail? Check. Water the plants one last time? Check. Ensure your HVAC system is safe?
Most homeowners don’t think much about their HVAC system before walking out the door. They adjust the temperature – why heat your space to your normal temperature range if nobody is there? Yet that can be not only unsafe, but dangerous too.
It can cause potential problems, including:
- Burst plumbing pipes
- No air circulation
- Increased indoor air quality concerns
And when that happens, you’ll come home to a potential mess.
Instead of turning your system completely off, consider turning it down a few degrees and leaving the furnace cycle from time to time. Pay attention to the weather reports; will there be an unusually cold snap while you’re away? Adjust the temperature accordingly. The key is to ensure your home stays warm enough to avoid potential problems, while keeping it cool enough to avoid heating a place you won’t be returning to for days or even weeks.
While old technology means you set your temperature and leave it, with new smart thermostats, you can have access to your home’s temperature no matter where in the world you are. You can watch your local weather and adjust your home’s thermostat with just a touch of a button. And when you’re enroute back home, bump up the temperature to what you prefer; your home will be perfectly heated according to your wishes.
