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

It’s the coldest night of the season and you start the day shivering. The furnace isn’t running. You hate the thought of getting out of your blankets and scheduling a furnace repair. Before you find yourself living this horrible scenario, there are a few things you can do to prevent and ready yourself for such a situation.

Before Your Furnace Goes Out

  • Schedule Furnace Service
    An annual 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 convenient area in your home to store an emergency inventory of supplies to keep you cozy in case of a 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 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 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 The Frazier Company 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. Drape yourself in 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 create carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all acceptable 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 The Frazier Company are ready to help. Give us a call at 402-896-5900 to schedule an appointment with us today.
