Has this happened to you? It’s a cold winter night here in Philadelphia, a light snow is falling, and you’re getting ready to watch a movie and eat a pizza with your family. Then, one of the kids complains that it’s cold inside. You check the thermostat, and sure enough, the temp is dropping, but your heating system isn’t kicking on. So, what should you do when the heat goes out? We offered some AC tips in a previous blog, and great news, many of them work for heating, too. Check that post or keep reading here.
Don’t panic when you feel that cold air. There are a few things you can check yourself that might get you back on track.
What should you do in the meantime? And what about an emergency like a winter storm? Start by conserving the heat already in your home. Place rolled-up towels across the bottoms of doors, cover windows, and keep doors to the outside closed. Bring all your activities into one room and keep that door closed as much as possible. Have everyone bundle up with sweaters and blankets.
You’re in luck if you have a fireplace, but be careful about using propane or kerosene heaters, as these can build up dangerous carbon monoxide in a closed space. Be sure whatever heater you use is rated for indoor use and crack a window while you use it.
