Having people over to watch the game? In North Carolina, we still have quite a few warm days in our future and though it is easy to set the thermostat to your liking when you are home alone, you want to make sure your guests are comfortable while they are cheering on their team. Not only do you need to keep your cool if your team is loosing, ? but you also need to keep everyone cool in the house while you are hosting a party. Here are a few tips on setting the thermostat for a house party and preparing your home in advance.
Before the Party
Before your party, it is a good idea to have a Fall Cleaning and Safety Check performed on your system. This way, you can make sure your HVAC is working properly, running smoothly, and quietly. At this time we will also make sure your heater is working for when those chilly days do arrive. A Fall Cleaning & Safety Check is included in our Peace of Mind Membership Plan. Our Peace of Mind Membership Plan is similar to a home warranty but better! We look for little things going wrong now to prevent big failure later. The last thing you want is your air conditioner or heater going out during the big game and we can make sure this does not happen.
The Day Of
On the day of the party, we recommend setting your thermostat between 60 and 70 degrees. Although you want to keep your guests cool, you do not want to adjust your temperature so much that it leads to a rise in your energy bill. Do your best to get a read of the room and try not to worry if one or two people complain about being hot or cold. It is probably going to happen.
After the Party
After all your guests have gone home and you are picking up around the house, don’t forget to return your temperature back to your normal setting. You don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night freezing.
We hope these tips will help you host a successful game day and cheer your team on to victory!
