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

It’s the coldest night of the year and you wake up shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You hate the notion of getting out of your blankets and setting up a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this dreadful scenario, there are a few things you can do to avoid and ready yourself for such a situation.

Before Your Furnace Goes Out

  • Schedule Furnace Service
    Yearly 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 stockpile of supplies to keep you comfortable in case of a breakdown. Some great items to have would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll appreciate 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 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 Heating and Air Conditioning a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stash
    Now is the time you’ll be happy 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 intended 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.

We hope you don’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this chilly time of year, but if you do the pros at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning are ready to help. Give us a call at 770-450-1539 to schedule an appointment with us today.
