Waiting for Emergency Furnace Repair
At AAA Heating and Plumbing, we know how daunting it can be when the thermometer dips to -50 degrees. We’re here to help you navigate these icy times with simple, effective tips to keep your home warm and your plumbing safe.
Smart Use of Alternative Heating
Space Heaters: Small but Mighty – Space heaters are great in a bind. Place them in central areas and keep flammable items away. Always supervise them.
Fireplaces: Cozy and Efficient – If you have a fireplace, now’s the time to use it. Ensure the flue is open for ventilation and never leave the fire unattended.
Oven Broil: An Emergency Option – In dire situations, you can use your oven for a short-term heat boost. Open the oven door and set it to broil. Remember, this is not a long-term solution and should be used cautiously.
Preventing Pipe Freezing: Act Now!
Let Faucets Drip: A steady drip in faucets can prevent pipes from freezing. It’s a simple trick but highly effective.
Insulate Pipes: Foam or towel-wrap exposed pipes, especially in basements or attics, to keep them from freezing.
Expect Longer Wait Times - We're on It!
During extreme weather conditions, AAA Heating and Plumbing experiences a surge in demand, leading to challenging work scenarios for our team. Despite these difficulties, we’re committed to providing timely service to all our customers. However, it’s important to anticipate longer response times due to the increased volume of service requests and potentially hazardous road conditions. We prioritize emergencies, such as lack of heating or burst pipes, and kindly ask for your understanding and patience if your situation is less critical.
To navigate these challenging times effectively, we advise you to stay proactive and prepared. Regular maintenance checks of your heating system can avert unforeseen breakdowns. Staying informed about local weather updates and warnings is crucial. Additionally, we recommend preparing an emergency kit containing essential items like blankets, candles, matches, a flashlight, and a portable charger. This preparation can make a significant difference in ensuring your safety and comfort during severe weather.
