What to Do When the Heat Goes Out in Locust Prior to Furnace Repair11/04/2015 It’s the coldest night of the season and you wake up shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You abhor the thought of getting out of your blankets and setting up a furnace repair.

Before Your Furnace Goes Out Schedule Furnace Service Regular furnace service and inspection gives your technician the opportunity to address any minor problems before they become a major breakdown.

Some good 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 notice that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at Dynamic Comfort Solutions 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 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 designed for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they generate carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all good heating options.
