After a Furnace Breakdown Check your Breakers Hopefully the problem is as simple as a blown fuse. A power surge may have tripped your breaker. If you notice that your breaker had been tripped, but you’ve flipped the switch and your furnace still isn’t working, give the team at Abilene Air-Tech Inc a call for furnace repair. Break into Your Supply Stash Now is the time you’ll be glad you compiled an emergency warmth stash. Put on those layers and try to continue being as active as possible to retain your body heat. Safety First We know you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be risky or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are intended for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they form carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all good heating options.
