Energy Tips for Super Bowl Parties

Jan 29, 2021 | HVAC

With Superbowl Gameday a little more than a week away, football fans across the country are preparing for festivities.

Whether you’re a big pro-football fan, or you live with someone who is, Superbowl parties are a huge American tradition.  

Having said that, if you’ve ever hosted a Superbowl party, you understand how expenses can pile up quickly.

To help you lower those costs for your Superbowl get-together, we at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating present the following.

Keep the heat low

When it comes to gatherings during the winter, extra bodies in a home while cooking food can create a hotter home. As such, we encourage you to turn the thermostat down a few degrees lower than normal. As warm as things can become during a holiday party, your visitors are likely to end up appreciating this decision. Keep in mind all the excitement and movement associated with big football games. That’s if Sunday’s game is exciting, and it’s not a blow out.

Nevertheless, if turning down the temperature isn’t enough and it still feels a bit toasty, you can try turning it down more and if it becomes hot in a hurry. While you can always crack open a window as well, be mindful that opening up doors and windows sends heated air and energy right out the window, literally. This will end up costing you more in the end.

Keep lights off other parts of the house

At most Superbowl Parties, the people attending all tend to hunker down around a single television set, usually our largest flat screen, and apart from maybe the kitchen and bathroom people seldom venture off into other areas. This is a good thing, which we suggest utilizing to your advantage by keeping lights turned off in those other parts of the home, including any rooms that’ll go unused during your Superbowl gathering.

Cook ahead of time

Because cooking food is known to heat up a dwelling in a hurry, we suggest preparing food ahead of time as much as possible. With people showing up before kick-off and cooking going on around the same time, a house can overheat in no time. We realize you want warm food. You don’t, however, want to roast your guests. So prep ahead and use warmers in a garage or outbuilding!

Consider Your Air Quality

With all of your festivities and fun happening at once on Superbowl Sunday, it’s easy to overlook the quality of air in our dwellings. Indoor air quality is vital, and it’s known to become compromised during parties and gatherings.

Don’t let this happen in your home. If your home is prone to indoor air pollution or if you have any unusual odors lingering before or after the Big Game, call Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating today at 614-810-0075, or schedule an appointment now by clicking here!
