With Halloween past us, it’s time to look forward to the holiday season here in Portland, OR. And that means friends and family members coming over to your house for a visit. When they arrive, you want to make sure they’re s comfortable as possible, which means ensuring that your home is kept cozy against falling temperatures here in Portland, OR. Now is the perfect time to let a trained technician take care of those issues, before you need to start cooking the turkey and setting up the decorations. Here are a few suggestions on ways to make your house comfortable for the holidays.

Schedule a Maintenance Session for Your Heater

A maintenance session takes care of all the little problems your heater may be experience, such as clogged burners or filters, loose bolts, or a problem with the gas line. The session will help your heater run more efficiently, as well as spotting any larger issues that may crop up during the holidays: giving you a chance to get them fixed before they interfere with your parties or get-togethers.

Install an Air Cleaner

Air cleaners remove dust, pollen and other contaminants from the air in your home. You can also purchase humidifiers to help combat dry air and/or UV air cleaners which kill germs that might spread from a well-meaning visitor into the home. They work in conjunction with your HVAC system and can even help it perform more efficiently in many cases.

Have Your Ducts Cleaned

Your ducts can spread dust and other contaminants through your home. In addition, build-up can slow down the flow of air, making it harder for your HVAC system to do its job. The same holds true for breaches or dents in your ductwork. A duct cleaning session can get rid of many of these issues, and a trained technician can repair any damage to your ducts.

Trust The Clean Air Act to help get your home ready for the holidays.
