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

It’s the coldest night of the season and you start the day shivering. The furnace has yet to turn on. You abhor 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 some things you can do to avoid and plan 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 issues before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find an easily accessible area in your home to keep an emergency inventory of supplies to keep you comfortable in case of a breakdown. Some great items to include would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be happy you prepped when the time comes that you need it.

After a Furnace Breakdown

  • Check your Breakers
    Hopefully the problem is easily fixed as a blown fuse. A power surge may possibly 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 Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Inventory
    Now is the time you’ll be grateful you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Cover yourself in layers and try to stay as active as possible to retain your body heat.
  • Safety First
    We realize 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.

We hope you don’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this season, but if you do the pros at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC are ready to help. Give us a call at 361-214-1203 to set up an appointment with us today.
