It’s the coldest night of the month and you start the day shivering. The furnace has yet to turn on. You hate the thought of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. Before you find yourself living this awful scenario, there are a number of things you can do to evade and ready yourself 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 problems before they become a major breakdown.
- Stock up on Supplies
Find a handy area in your home to keep an emergency stockpile of supplies to keep you warm in case of a breakdown. Some good items to add would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be happy you prepped when the moment arrives that you need it.
After a Furnace Breakdown
- Check your Breakers
Hopefully the problem is easy to resolve as a blown fuse. A power surge may possibly 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 Air Service Co. a call for furnace repair.
- Break into Your Supply Stockpile
Now is the time you’ll be grateful you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Drape yourself in layers and try to continue being 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 created 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 acceptable heating options.
We hope you don’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this season, but if you do the pros at Air Service Co. are ready to help. Give us a call at 918-212-8943 to book an appointment with us today.
