Keeping warm under a blanket when the heat is out

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

It’s the coldest night of the month and you wake up shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You abhor the notion 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 ready yourself 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 small problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find an easily accessible area in your home to keep an emergency stash of supplies to keep you comfortable in case of a breakdown. Some smart items to add would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be grateful for the prepping prepped when the time comes 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 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 Clean Air HVAC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stockpile
    Now is the time you’ll be happy you assembled an emergency warmth stash. Cover yourself in layers and try to stay 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 dangerous 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 good heating options.
