Helpful Tips For Holiday Hosting

November 19, 2019

As the host, it’s your responsibility to take care of your guests. Along with providing delicious food and fun activities, you’ll also need to make sure they have a comfortable space to relax.

ADJUST THE HEAT

A resting adult male can give off up to 120 watts of energy, making the human body a perpetual heat-generating machine. Plus, hosting a large group usually means you’ll be cooking, which creates even more heat. Lowering the thermostat as the house begins to fill up can help maintain comfort.

COMMUNICATE WITH GUESTS

Make sure to check in with your guests to see how they feel. Many people are too polite to ask their host to crank up the heater. One person’s hot is another person’s cold, which means you might not be able to please everyone. It’s best to compromise on the thermostat setting. You can provide fans and extra blankets for anyone who might be too hot or too cold.

DECORATE WITH COMFORT IN MIND

Add a few soft blankets with Christmas designs as well as a few throw pillows, and your room will be full of holiday cheer. Upgrading your bedding in holiday patterns is another way to make the experience memorable for your guests.

INSPECT YOUR FURNACE FILTER

Having problems with your HVAC system during a gathering can be a major headache. Imagine having to send family members to a hotel in the dead of winter! Inspecting your furnace filter ahead of time can help avoid such a fiasco. A clogged filter will put more strain on your system.
