It’s the coldest night of the month and you start the day shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You hate the idea of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. So you never find yourself living this horrible 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 small problems before they become a major breakdown.
  • Stock up on Supplies
    Find a convenient area in your home to store an emergency stash of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a breakdown. Some smart items to include would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll be grateful for the prepping prepped when the moment arrives 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 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 Air Houston Mechanical LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Stash
    Now is the time you’ll be happy 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 hazardous or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are created for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they create carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all acceptable heating options.

Ideally you won’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this chilly time of year, but if you do the pros at Air Houston Mechanical LLC are ready to help. Give us a call at 832-224-3887 to book an appointment with us today.
