As temperatures drop across the Kansas City Metro, homeowners are beginning to turn up the heat to keep their homes warm. While many opt for central heat throughout their entire home, a good percentage of people choose to save on costs, and use a space heater to keep their house comfortable.
There is nothing quite like winter in Kansas City. From the infamous Plaza Lights to ice skating at Crown Center, the city comes to life when snow blankets the ground. However, even the beauty of a Midwest winter cannot overshadow the bitter cold it brings each year.
The holidays are a special time of the year, where your home bustles with activity unlike any other season. From traditional family gatherings to parties thrown with friends, your home sees a lot more foot traffic during the month of December.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and the most chaotic for your household. Between decorating your home for the season, planning presents, and hosting guests from all over the country, your house can take a beating during the holiday season. Especially when it comes to your water consumption, your home can go into overdrive when company arrives.
A necessity to your home in the winter, your furnace is responsible for keeping you family warm during the bitter Kansas City season. However, while it can be a dream come true to snuggle up in a warm house, furnaces need to be properly maintained for safety and reliability. A lack of maintenance and safety check can result in operating your furnace unsafely and potentially with carbon monoxide being emitted into your home.
