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

It’s the coldest night of the month and you lay in bed shivering. The furnace hasn’t turned on. You dread the notion of getting out of your blankets and booking a furnace repair. Prior to finding yourself living this dreadful scenario, there are some things you can do to avoid and prepare 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 keep an emergency inventory of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a breakdown. Some good items to add would be a space heater, blankets and any winter weather wear. You’ll appreciate the prepping prepped when the day 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 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 Oak Point Heating and Air LLC a call for furnace repair.
  • Break into Your Supply Inventory
    Now is the time you’ll be glad you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Put on those layers and try to stay as active as possible to keep your body heat up.
  • 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 created 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.

Hopefully you won’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this chilly time of year, but if you do the pros at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC are ready to help. Give us a call at 940-202-1202 to book an appointment with us today.
