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

It’s the coldest night of the season and you start the day shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You dread the notion of getting out of your blankets and setting up a furnace repair. Before you find yourself living this dreadful scenario, there are a few things you can do to evade and prepare 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 issues 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 cozy in case of a breakdown. Some great items to add would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be grateful for the prepping 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 Cool Power LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Inventory
    Now is the time you’ll be glad you assembled an emergency warmth stash. Put on those layers and try to remain as active as possible to keep your body heat up.
  • Safety First
    We know you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be risky 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.
