1. Don’t cover the thermostat
All of those pretty posts with DIY project details on how to cover your thermostat could be jeopardizing your home comfort and your energy bill. Your thermostat is
designed to be exposed so it can accurately gauge the temperature of your home.
2. Don’t heat up the thermostat
Keep those sparkly lights far away from your thermostat. Exposing a thermostat to a heat source can cause false readings. This may prevent your HVAC equipment from
running when it should, or may cause it to cool when it should be heating which could lead to equipment or other home damages. For the same reason, you shouldn’t have your thermostat near windows
with direct sunlight, lighting and lamps, or other electronic equipment that could generate heat.
3. Don’t block your air vents
When decorating for the holidays, we often move around furniture to accommodate trees, presents and other adornments. When you block your air vents, your blower could
be working harder. Take care to keep any objects in your home clear from your air vents to maintain a comfortable home temperature. Also, if you are a household that puts up live trees, know that
they could dry out faster if positioned too closely to vents and could be a potential fire hazard.
Pay attention to these common HVAC decorating gaffes so you can keep your home and family cheerful – and not uncomfortable – this holiday season.
