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

November 04, 2015

It’s the coldest night of the month and you start the day shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You dread the idea of getting out of your blankets and booking a furnace repair. So you never 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 problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find a handy area in your home to keep an emergency stash 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 be happy you prepped when the moment arrives that you need it.

After a Furnace Breakdown

  • Check your Breakers
    Hopefully the problem is as simple 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 Cool Power LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stockpile
    Now is the time you’ll be glad you put together 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 risky or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are created 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.
