Thanksgiving is right around the corner and with it comes colder weather!  Get ready for Thanksgiving and the cold winter weather by ensuring your heating system is ready to warm your home right away.  

A Clean Unit = A Healthy Unit

The easiest and best way to ensure your heating system is ready for Thanksgiving is to schedule a “tune-up” with an HVAC maintenance call. Edwards Heating & Air offers HVAC maintenance agreements to our customers in the Acworth and Atlanta areas. Our NATE-certified technicians inspect your system for any irregularities and clean all equipment prior to turning it on.

Filter Check Up

If you had your heating unit maintained earlier in the fall, you may not require an HVAC maintenance call. Instead you should clean or change out your filters so they are ready for the holidays and winter weather. When your system has a clean filtration system, your whole unit will function more efficiently and provide better indoor air quality.

Proper Weatherization

During the colder weather, cold air can seep into your home through cracks between windows and doors. When your caulking and weather stripping is sealed tight, you can stay warmer without raising your heating or electric bill. Our technicians at Edwards Heating & Air can check your home’s weatherization during a regular service call and inspect your unit at the same time.

Utilize a Programmable Thermostat

A great way to make your Thanksgiving more relaxed and comfortable is to invest in a programmable thermostat. You can program your thermostat to maintain a set temperature for different times of the day. When it is time to sleep or be away from your home, you can program your unit to operate on a lower temperature setting. Ask one of our technicians about additional benefits of installing a programmable thermostat in our home.

Last Resort Option

The last tip on staying warm this Thanksgiving is to invest in a new heating system if you experience either of these issues:

  • The age of your HVAC system is over 15 years
  • You are experiencing repeated breakdowns with your current system
