Having family over can be one of the most exciting, but also one of the most stressful parts of the holidays. To avoid any more headaches than necessary, we here at Altman’s Cooling & Heating want to provide you some helpful tips to make sure your air conditioning unit is running as smoothly as possible.

Schedule a Tune-Up

While we do stress a semi-annual maintenance check of your unit in the spring and fall, it can only benefit you by having another during the holiday season. Preventing problems before they can even start to happen will save you money in the long run. You don’t realize how much worse your problems will become when you don’t have a working system to keep you cool, so make sure to do your best to avoid that troubling situation. Consistent monitoring of the unit’s health should provide you with a flawless system that can keep you comfortable when you need it most, especially when the family gathers for holiday festivities.

Set Your Thermostat to a Schedule

Keeping your system from running on full power at all times of the day will allow it to do a better job and prevent it from burning itself out. Being aware of what temperature you’ll need it at during the day and night will also help relieve stress by indirectly putting yourself on a schedule. Any of our service members can show you how to do this during a scheduled tune-up.

Prevent Indoor Air Pollution

Florida’s humidity and almost year-round warm temperatures can make indoor air pollution a common issue. With impending guests and the holiday bustle, it is easy to track even more dirt and dust into your home than usual. Having the proper unit installed is an important part of preventing indoor air pollution. Contaminated air can easily lead to headaches, dizziness, congestion, and a variety of other health problems you shouldn’t have to be dealing with during your holiday season.

An air quality assessment from one of our service members can provide you with a high-quality vacuum filter as well as replacement of vents and parts that have been collecting too much debris.

Don’t give yourself one more thing to worry about this holiday season. Schedule your appointment with one of our service members in the Titusville and New Smyrna Beach, Florida areas today to let us worry about it for you.
