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

Repair

It’s the coldest night of the season and you start the day shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You hate the thought of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. Prior to finding yourself living this awful scenario, there are some things you can do to evade and prepare for such a situation.

Before Your Furnace Goes Out

  • Schedule Furnace Service
    An annual 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 an easily accessible area in your home to assemble 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 appreciate the prepping prepped when the time comes 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 see that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at House of Heating Incorporated 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 continue being 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 hazardous or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are intended 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.

We hope you don’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this winter, but if you do the pros at House of Heating Incorporated are ready to help. Give us a call at 888-384-3163 or, if it’s easier for you, set up an appointment with us online today.
