Energy Tips for Super Bowl Parties

Jan 29, 2021 | Heating, HVAC | 0 comments

Are you hosting a Super Bowl gathering this year? 

If so, we at Lancaster Furnace & Air Conditioning have some tips to help you conserve on energy costs while at the same time keeping your gathering a great time so everyone can enjoy the Big Game:

Throw a Backyard Tailgate 

If it’s warm enough on Super Bowl Sunday, and weather permits, fire up the grill and have your pregame festivities in your backyard. You can also build a fire if it helps. In any case, a Backyard Tailgate will help you save electricity used to operate your stove and oven and enjoy the late winter atmosphere like you would at a Buckeyes’ game.

Reduce Home Temperature

Kick off your special gathering by taking down the temperature a few degrees on your thermostat, or pre program your Smart Thermostat so it’s all ready to go. With food prep and extra bodies all revved up for the Big Game, your home will feel a lot warmer than usual. 

Create A Play-by-Play Menu

Don’t make the mistake of blitzing your guests with all the food before kick off. Stagger food offerings with a play-by-play menu that offers your delicious treats in waves, this way nothing goes stale or grows cold and less will be wasted overall.

Turn lights off in unused rooms

At most Super Bowl gatherings, everyone usually ends up in our living room glued to our largest flat screen TV. Except for perhaps the bathroom and maybe the kitchen from time to time, mosts guests don’t go into any other rooms. To save energy, turn off lights in these unused rooms and other areas and keep them off during the game.

Prepare food in advance

Whenever a host has to cook for larger groups of guests, like a Super Bowl party, it can heat things up in a dwelling. Because of this, we recommend hosts prepare their food ahead of time as much as feasible to prevent too much cooking from happening when the house is full of visitors. Essentially, we are looking to provide warm food without roasting ourselves out. To make this simpler, you can use warmers in an outbuilding or garage to keep food ready to go!

Remember to Recycle! 

Care about the environment? Aluminum cans add up when you save them, especially from a party. We suggest setting up a recycle container next to your coolers or trash cans so guests can set their empty beverage cans and bottles inside them to reduce waste and score one for the planet.

Furnace not performing so great?

Don’t wait for your furnace to call it quits in the middle of your big Super Bowl Bash. If you’re having home heating issues or HVAC problems, call Lancaster Furnace & Air Conditioning today at (740) 625-2320 or schedule an appointment now by clicking here!
