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

November 04, 2015

It’s the coldest night of the month and you wake up shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You hate the thought of getting out of your blankets and setting up a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this dreadful scenario, there are some things you can do to avoid and plan 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 a handy area in your home to assemble an emergency stockpile of supplies to keep you warm 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 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 True Temp Heating & Air Inc a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stockpile
    Now is the time you’ll be happy you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Put on those layers and try to stay as active as possible to raise your body heat.
  • Safety First
    We understand 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 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 safe heating options.
