It’s the coldest night of the season and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace has yet to turn on. You abhor the notion of getting out of your blankets and booking a furnace repair. Prior to finding yourself living this awful 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
Yearly 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 a handy area in your home to assemble an emergency stash of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a breakdown. Some smart items to add 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 could have tripped your breaker. If you find that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at Premium Air Services LLC a call for furnace repair.
- Break into Your Supply Stash
Now is the time you’ll be grateful you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Drape yourself in layers and try to remain as active as possible to retain your body heat.
- Safety First
We understand you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be hazardous 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.
