Tips to Help You Keep Warm When the Furnace Gives Out

The house is cold and you are shivering despite the fact that you know you turned your furnace on this morning. What’s the deal? Chances are there is an issue with your furnace here that needs to be addressed. The best option you have is to reach out for furnace repair in Killeen, TX.

It is likely that you are not the only person who needs furnace repairs in the area. Recent weather events have taken their toll on a lot of home comfort systems so it may be a little while until you can get the help you need. The question is, how do you stay warm? We can give you some great ideas to help you stay as comfortable and safe as possible until one of our technicians arrives.

1. Get up and active

We know it can be hard to feel motivated right now. But moving around can improve your mood and help you warm up too. Try that new exercise regiment you’ve been saying you were going to do since New Year’s Eve. Exercise or dancing helps you warm up and pass the time more quickly too.

2. Layer up as much as you can

Now is not the time to claim you can’t feel the cold. Now is the time to break out your thermals from that family trip to the mountains and combine them with your favorite fuzzy sweater and thick socks. Layering can help keep your body a lot warmer for a lot longer, making it easier to get by until your furnace is working again.

3. If possible, make something hot

Put the kettle on and make hot water for tea or coffee. Get some ingredients together and make a hot meal. If you have electricity at this time, now is when you want to use it to generate heat in unconventional ways. And as a bonus, all those warm drinks or foods will help warm you up from the inside out.

4. Stay together

If you live with one or more family members, now is when you should be enjoying some close quality time. Get out some blankets and gather in one room of the house. The close proximity actually has the ability to keep you warmer for a longer amount of time. Plus, if you can get people laughing or moving around together, this is a heat generator too.

Keeping your home warm can be tough right now especially as many of us struggle with power outages. It is our hope that you can use these tips to keep yourselves and your loved ones warm until we are able to assist in getting your heater back in working order.

If your furnace needs repairs during this time, don’t hesitate to contact us. Demand may be high but we will still do everything possible to help you as soon as we can. And when we do arrive, you can rest easy knowing we will get your furnace running effectively and efficiently again.
