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

It’s the coldest night of the year and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You dread the idea of getting out of your blankets and setting up 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
    Yearly 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 an easily accessible area in your home to assemble an emergency inventory of supplies to keep you comfortable in case of a breakdown. Some good items to include would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be grateful for the prepping prepped when the day 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 could have tripped your breaker. If you notice that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia 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 know 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 designed 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.
