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 see that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at ACS Inc a call for furnace repair. Break into Your Supply Stockpile Now is the time you’ll be glad you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Put on those layers and try to stay as active as possible to keep your body heat up. Safety First We understand 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 form carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all good heating options.
