With the holidays here, the December ritual of finding something unique for family members poses a puzzle that an army of elves can’t solve. Hold the socks with the whacky designs and skip the last-minute scarves. Leave the goofy battery powered sweaters in the bin and just say no to another bottle of celebrity perfume. Consider a climate comfort alternative instead!
Temperature Affects Every Aspect of Our Lives
At first glance, heating and air conditioning gifts may seem a bit unusual. After all, desert temperatures in December are moderate and delightful. However, when you consider how much time Arizonans spend indoors (over 90 percent in the summer months) and just how important temperature is to personal comfort, then it starts to make sense. If you’ve got someone in your life who’s always a little too hot or too cold, giving the gift of temperature control could be just the right move.
HVAC-Related Gifts – The Sleeper Hit of the Year
This year, why not give a gift that truly keeps on giving all year long. Consider these offerings for the temperature sensitive VIP in your life.
- Wi-fi Enabled Smart Thermostat – Creating a comfortable home environment starts with your thermostat. Because most thermostats are extremely reliable, homeowners rarely think about replacing them. However, new smart thermostats give you more control over your HVAC, allow you to heat or cool your home more efficiently, help you save money on energy costs and even let you adjust settings from your phone. Sounds like a great tech gift for dad that the whole family will enjoy.
- Ceiling Fans – If you struggle with heat during the summer, installing ceiling fans can make a huge difference. Ceiling fans not only make rooms more comfortable to be in, they also help reduce your utility bill. Though ceiling fans do not actually lower the temperature in a given room, they make you feel cooler by moving air across your skin. Ceiling fans come in a multitude of styles, shapes and sizes and will add value to your home.
- Cooling Mattress Pads – The recent rise of popularity in memory foam mattresses has brought along an unintended consequence. At night, as you sink into the memory foam, your body tends to generate more heat because there’s less air moving around your skin for cooling. Hi tech cooling mattress pads are the answer. This is a “cool” gift for anyone who perspires while sleeping.
- All New HVAC System – Depending on how old your air conditioner is, it may be time for an all new HVAC system. This is understandably a large purchase and would definitely not fit under the Christmas tree. However, the winter months are the best time to install a new system, so you’ll be cool and worry-free when the hot weather comes along in spring. If you’re not ready to replace the entire system, you can always get dad a new set of air filters just for fun!
