HomeBlog6 Tips for Staying Cozy This Holiday Season 

With the Thanksgiving turkey leftovers just about finished, the holiday season is creeping up on us. Are you all set?

At Reliant, we can’t wait to give our hard-working team a well-deserved rest and get together with our friends and family to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. There’s nothing quite like a warm and cozy home to make the festivities even more special. 

Here in Florida, where the average temperature hovers around 70°F during the day, the evenings can bring a welcomed chill. Many of us will be reaching for the heater and a sweater. That’s why now is the perfect time to ensure that your home is ready for the holiday cheer. 

So, today we’re sharing some top tips to keep your home warm and inviting during the holiday season. So, wrap up, and let’s get to it.


  1. Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Before your friends, family, and neighbors start arriving, it’s a smart idea to schedule HVAC maintenance. Remember, investing in the upkeep of your HVAC means it’s there for you when you need it. The last thing you want is for HVAC issues and everyone to start shivering around the Christmas tree. We love surprises at Christmas, but unexpected heating breakdowns are not fun for anyone. At Reliant, we can ensure that your system is running efficiently, providing optimal comfort for your home. Don’t wait until the last minute—plan ahead to avoid any unexpected issues.

  1. Adjust Your Thermostat

Make the most of your HVAC system by adjusting the thermostat to a comfortable temperature. We’ll leave it to you to debate what the perfect temperature is! A cozy home enhances the holiday atmosphere and ensures everyone stays warm, especially as the evening temperatures dip a bit.

  1. Seal Any Drafts

Now is a great time to check your windows and doors for drafts that might let in cold air. Proper insulation is key to maintaining a warm and inviting atmosphere. Let’s leave the icy conditions for those Holiday movies and keep your home snug. 

  1. Use Decorative Throws and Blankets

Have you started decorating your home yet? We can’t resist festive throws and blankets. Not only do they add a touch of holiday charm, but they also provide an extra layer of warmth for you and your guests.

  1. Enjoy Your Fireplace

If you have a fireplace, make the most of it during the holiday season. Nothing beats the ambiance and warmth of a crackling fire. Ensure it’s clean and in good working condition before lighting it up for the perfect holiday setting.

  1. Layer Up in Style

It’s time to get those Christmas sweaters out of the closet and stay cozy while looking festive and fun.
