It’s time to deck the halls with boughs of holly! Or, if you’re feeling creative, you can deck them with HVAC paraphernalia.
Here are some ideas for HVAC ornaments you can make or buy to get you in the holiday spirit.
It’s amazing what you can create using a simple dryer vent. Start by gluing the two ends together into a ring. Spray paint it green and decorate it with a red bow and some pine cones. Now you’ve got an HVAC Christmas wreath!
If you’re feeling more ambitious, make three different dryer vent rings, each of slightly different sizes. Stack them up, biggest to smallest, and spray paint them white. Add a scarf, hat, some black buttons for eyes, and a corncob pipe, to make a snowman! You can even glue it to a white HVAC air filter so it looks like a snow scene.
If that’s not enough, make a few different dryer vent rings, all of slightly different sizes, and stack them up largest to smallest. Spray paint them green to make a dryer vent Christmas tree. The more rings you stack, the bigger your tree will be. Put a star on top, so it comes to a point, and decorate it with garland, ribbon, colored beads, or other types of ornaments.
Even if you’re not crafty, you can still join in the HVAC holiday fun. There are plenty of HVAC-themed ornaments you can buy. There are some shaped like A/Cs or furnaces. Others look like the tools you use to fix an HVAC system, such as hammers and drills, along with toolboxes, tool belts, and more, surrounded by leaves of holly.
And for the crowning piece, try a Galileo thermometer ornament. A miniature version of the 18th-century gizmo, designed to hang on the tree, it’s filled with balls of different colors and is sure to be the focal point of your holiday decor.
