You have your snacks, you have your drinks, you bought the best football package, you have the big-screen TV, but is your home ready for the company? Though fall is finally here, it still feels like summer in North Carolina, and we are sure to have a few more warm days in our future. If you are inviting everyone over to your house to watch the next big game, 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 losing, but you need to keep everyone cool in the house while you are hosting the party. Here are a few Tower Tips for throwing a successful party.
Schedule a Fall Cleaning and Safety Check
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.
When the Day of the Party Arrives
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 all your guests leave, make sure you return your thermostat back to its normal setting. You do not want to wake up in the middle of the night freezing.
We hope these Tower Tips will help you host a victorious football watch party! As always, call us at 919-755-7957 with any questions you have or if you are in need of emergency service.
