3 HVAC Tips for Your New Year's Eve Party

You have probably already purchased the champagne and made plans for party games, but you might not be finished preparing for your New Year's Eve party just yet. To avoid having to worry about any heating-related concerns on the night of your party, do these things beforehand.

1. Give Your HVAC System Any Necessary Attention

By the time New Year's Eve rolls around, you will have probably already have been using your heating system for weeks. If you've noticed any problems with your heating system or if you haven't changed your air filter since you have started using your heating system, though, it might be time to show a little bit of attention to your HVAC system before the party. Have it tuned up if you haven't done so yet for the winter; then you can make sure your heater is ready for the party and start out the new year on the right note. Also, change your air filter if you haven't done so recently.

2. Keep the Doors Shut

If it's chilly on the evening of your party, try to keep your doors shut. Of course, the doors will probably be opening and closing when people are coming and going to and from your party, but if you set up places for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves indoors, you can both make sure that your guests are comfortable and relaxed during your party and discourage people from walking in and out and wasting energy from your heating system.

3. Adjust Your Thermostat before the Party

Think about the tone of your party, and set your thermostat before everyone arrives so that it will be at a comfortable temperature. If your guests are going to be showing up in cocktail dresses and other similar attire, for example, you may want to adjust your thermostat so that the temperature is slightly higher in your home than it would be on a normal evening when you and your family members might be dressed in warm pajamas and snuggled up under blankets.

If you're going to be hosting a New Year's Eve party for yourself and all of your closest friends, you don't want to have to worry about things related to your heating system. If you follow these tips before your party, though, you can make sure that your heating system is the last thing that you have to worry about when you and your loved ones are ringing in the new year.
