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

It’s the coldest night of the month and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You abhor the idea of getting out of your blankets and booking a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this awful scenario, there are a number of things you can do to evade and prepare for such a situation.

Before Your Furnace Goes Out

  • Schedule Furnace Service
    An annual 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 inventory of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a breakdown. Some good items to have 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 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 Alliance Team a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stockpile
    Now is the time you’ll be grateful you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Drape yourself in layers and try to stay 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 hazardous or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are designed 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 safe heating options.

We hope you don’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this season, but if you do the pros at Air Alliance Team are ready to help. Give us a call at 636-229-1544 to schedule an appointment with us today.
