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

It’s the coldest night of the year and you wake up shivering. The furnace has yet to turn on. You abhor the notion of getting out of your blankets and booking a furnace repair. Before you find yourself living this dreadful scenario, there are a number of things you can do to avoid 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 minor problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find an easily accessible area in your home to assemble an emergency stash 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 be happy you 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 County Line Mechanical LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stash
    Now is the time you’ll be grateful you put together an emergency warmth stash. Cover yourself in layers and try to remain 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 created 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.

Hopefully you won’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this season, but if you do the pros at County Line Mechanical LLC are ready to help. Give us a call at 717-216-0846 to set up an appointment with us today.
