Repair

It’s the coldest night of the year and you start the day shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You abhor the idea of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this horrible scenario, there are some things you can do to prevent 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 warm 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 day arrives 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 Conditioning & Heating Service 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 retain your body heat.
  • Safety First
    We realize you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be risky or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are intended 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 good heating options.
