Keeping warm under a blanket when the heat is out

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

It’s the coldest night of the season and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You abhor the notion of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this awful scenario, there are some things you can do to avoid and plan 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 small 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 cozy 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 moment 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 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 Arrings A/C & Heating a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stash
    Now is the time you’ll be happy you put together an emergency warmth stash. Put on those layers and try to stay as active as possible to keep your body heat up.
  • Safety First
    We understand 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 form carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all acceptable heating options.
