Keeping warm under a blanket when the heat is out

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

It’s the coldest night of the month and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You dread the notion of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this awful scenario, there are a number of 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 minor problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find a convenient area in your home to keep an emergency stash of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a breakdown. Some smart items to include would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be grateful for the prepping prepped when the day 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 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 All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stash
    Now is the time you’ll be grateful you put together an emergency warmth stash. Cover yourself in layers and try to continue being 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 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 acceptable heating options.
