This is clearly a scenario that no homeowner wants to face—being home on a chilly day during the winter, with snow falling outside, when all of the sudden their furnace just stops working.
Ideally, you’d never face this kind of issue, because you’d ensure your heater was properly maintained. What we mean when we say this is that you should be scheduling professional maintenance for your furnace or boiler system once a year, and if you have a heat pump system twice a year. Maintenance allows our technicians to thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust your heater to make sure it performs as best it can. It also extends the lifespan of your heater and makes it a lot less likely that you’ll run into something like an emergency breakdown.
Still though, sudden breakdowns happen. When they do, we’re here for you! In the meantime, however, we’re sure you’d like to know how to stay warm while you wait for our techs to arrive.
