It’s the coldest night of the year and you start the day shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You abhor the idea of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this horrible scenario, there are a number of things you can do to evade 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 an easily accessible area in your home to store an emergency inventory of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a breakdown. Some good items to include 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 easy to resolve as a blown fuse. A power surge may 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 Twin Air LLC 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 continue being as active as possible to raise your body heat.
  • Safety First
    We understand 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 intended 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 safe heating options.
