Quick Tips for a Cozy Thanksgiving Holiday

December 17, 2023


Prepping for that Thanksgiving meal can be challenging—especially if you have a large family. In addition to cooking the bird, making those veggies, baking those pies, and decorating the table, you also have the home cleaning and prep work to worry about. We get it! At Blue Dot, we have families, too, so we understand the stress that is involved with hosting a big gathering. So, we’re here to help! As a Thanksgiving host, you need to concentrate on cooking and feeding your guests—not worrying about your comfort and whether your heating system will work. Before things get too chaotic, it’s a good idea to take inventory of your heating unit‚ especially if you’ve been concerned about its recent functioning. It’s the first step toward a successful holiday feast!

Do You Know The Signs of a Failing Heater?

Wondering if your heating unit is on the fritz? Here are five signs it might be time for a furnace replacement:

  • You are constantly calling for heater repair
  • Your system is over 10 years old
  • You notice warm and cold spots throughout your home
  • Your system keeps short-cycling (turns on and off frequently)
  • You hear strange noises or have noticed funny smells

Do these signs sound familiar? Give us a call for a heater inspection today!

Is It Time for a New System?

There are many things to consider before deciding on furnace replacement. If you’re fed up with constant heater repair and uncomfortable indoor temperatures, you’ll probably lean towards investing in a new model. But if you can deal with comfort that is subpar, you might decide to put off that investment for another year or so. If that’s the case, we suggest at least calling for a heater tune-up and discussing your options with one of our knowledgeable Blue Dot techs. But don’t forget, investing in a furnace replacement will do your home wonders in the long run. Plus, thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), now is a great time to save money when you purchase a new energy efficient system (for more information on the IRA, click here). A new system will:

  • Eliminate those hot and cold spots and deliver balanced comfort throughout your home
  • Lower your energy bills and heating & cooling costs
  • Improve your indoor air quality
  • Provide greater peace of mind knowing you have a reliable system

Still have questions? That’s why we’re here! Feel free to schedule an appointment with a licensed Blue Dot technician if you’re on the fence about a new system. We can evaluate your current situation and let you know your options.
