In St. Louis County, St Charles County & Jefferson County among all the festivities of this time of year, several vital tactics complement the holiday season’s jolliness and warmth. Hoffmann Brothers, your St Louis HVAC Contractor, reminds homeowners to add these items onto the holiday ideas checklist.

Bake safe.
Baking holiday cookies with the hearth oven crackling in the background is ambient and reminiscent of the season, as along as the home is not collecting an invisible poison, named carbon monoxide. Make sure the carbon monoxide detector is properly working, has not expired and contains updated batteries. Also, set the humidifier at the level recommended in the manufacturer’s instruction manual to reduce dry air. When the indoor environment consists of dry air, carbon monoxide coupled with poor ventilation, it is a recipe for combustion.

Practice preventative care.
Replace filters on a monthly basis. Maximize the efficiency of the home’s heating system, by replacing filters every four to six-weeks. Clean filters enable the furnace to perform better.

Don’t defer annual heating maintenance on your heating system. It is important to have it checked out once per year as the system deals with electrical components and gas. For the safety and security of your home and family this Holiday season, schedule your maintenance today.

Your plumbing and electrical annual inspections are just as important. The worst time to repair the home’s heating system, electrical breaker, or institute plumbing modifications, is during the height of the holiday season when the calendar is full and spending is at an all-time high. Prevent uncostly replacements during the holidays by being proactive and getting everything checked before the Holiday season begins! Join our Electrical and/or Plumbing Memberships today.

Economize on energy.
Set the thermostat five to seven degrees lower when the home is vacant for several hours. Consider reducing the home’s temperature during bedtime. Every degree—that the thermostat is reduced, represents a one-percent savings on the monthly utility bill.
