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

It’s the coldest night of the year and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace has yet to turn on. You abhor the notion of getting out of your blankets and setting up a furnace repair. Prior to finding yourself living this awful scenario, there are a few 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 an easily accessible area in your home to keep an emergency inventory of supplies to keep you comfortable in case of a breakdown. Some good items to have would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll appreciate the prepping prepped when the time comes 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 find that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at D & D Heating & AC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stash
    Now is the time you’ll be glad you put together an emergency warmth stash. Drape yourself in layers and try to stay as active as possible to raise your body heat.
  • Safety First
    We realize 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 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 good heating options.

Hopefully you won’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this chilly time of year, but if you do the pros at D & D Heating & AC are ready to help. Give us a call at 720-316-1401 to book an appointment with us today.
