Our team at Dunlow Mechanical wants to help you and your family stay warm. If your furnace starts to malfunction, you can turn to us to get the effective furnace repair services you need. We offer 24/7 emergency services to get your furnace back up and running as soon as possible, but we also want to help you be prepared for any situation. If you someday find yourself in a situation where you have to wait a day or more for furnace repair, you can use the following methods to keep warm in the meantime:
- Check your windows – A great deal of heat can escape through your windows, particularly if they are not properly sealed. If you have to wait for furnace repair, we recommend checking your windows for any air leaks and temporarily sealing them with tape.
- Draw your curtains – Similarly, drawing your curtains creates an additional barrier that heat has to cross before it can escape, meaning that more heat will stay inside with you.
- Gather in one room – Another way to keep warm is to have all your family members or housemates gather into the same room. Your combined body heat will help warm the air around you and keep everyone more comfortable.
- Close unused rooms – While you’re hanging out in the same room, close all the doors to the other rooms in your home. This will prevent heat from spreading into these empty spaces and instead keep it close, where it can do you some good. If the space you are gathered in is particularly large or open, you can hang sheets or blankets across doorways to create a smaller bubble of heat.
