What to Do When the Heat Goes Out in East Bernard Prior to Furnace Repair

It’s the coldest night of the season and you start the day shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You abhor the thought of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this horrible scenario, there are a few things you can do to avoid and prepare for such a situation.

Before Your Furnace Goes Out

  • Schedule Furnace Service
    Regular furnace service and inspection gives your technician the opportunity to address any minor issues before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find an easily accessible area in your home to store an emergency stockpile of supplies to keep you comfortable in case of a breakdown. Some good items to have would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll appreciate the prepping prepped when the time comes that you need it.

After a Furnace Breakdown

  • Check your Breakers
    Hopefully the problem is easily fixed as a blown fuse. A power surge may possibly have tripped your breaker. If you notice that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at E.B. Air, LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Inventory
    Now is the time you’ll be grateful you put together an emergency warmth stash. Drape yourself in layers and try to stay as active as possible to keep your body heat up.
  • Safety First
    We realize you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be dangerous or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are designed for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they generate carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all safe heating options.
