It’s the coldest night of the month and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You hate the notion of getting out of your blankets and booking a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this dreadful scenario, there are a number of things you can do to avoid and prepare 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 small problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find a convenient area in your home to assemble 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 be happy you prepped when the time comes that you need it.

After a Furnace Breakdown

  • Check your Breakers
    Hopefully the problem is as simple 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 Innovative Mechanical, LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Inventory
    Now is the time you’ll be glad you assembled an emergency warmth stash. Cover yourself in layers and try to continue being as active as possible to raise your body heat.
  • Safety First
    We know 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 acceptable heating options.
