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

It’s the coldest night of the year and you wake up shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You dread the notion of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. Before you find yourself living this horrible scenario, there are a few things you can do to evade and ready yourself 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 small problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find a convenient area in your home to store an emergency inventory 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 be grateful for 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 notice that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Inventory
    Now is the time you’ll be grateful you assembled an emergency warmth stash. Cover yourself in layers and try to stay as active as possible to raise your body heat.
  • 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 intended for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they create carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all good heating options.
