  • Close Doors- One effective strategy to stay warm while you wait for heating repair services to be completed is to close as many doors as you can. Without functional central heating, you’re going to have to rely on your body heat and whatever other heat sources you have, such as a fireplace, and it’s much easier to keep one confined area warm than it is to try to heat the whole house this way. Closing your interior doors will prevent precious heat energy from going to waste in rooms that no one is using.
  • Dress in Layers- Another way to stay warm while you wait for our technicians here at Whitetail Heating & Cooling to finish your heating repairs is to use layers. Most people already know to dress in layers to stay warm more effectively, but you can also apply this same reasoning to other things like bundling up in sheets and blankets. Basically, the more barriers you can put between you and the cold air, the better–even closing your curtains at night will help prevent heat from escaping.
  • Huddle Up- Our third tip for staying warm while heating repair is in progress is to have your household wait it out in the same room, if possible. The more people are in a space, the more radiant body heat is available to warm it up, so even just sitting side by side will help you stay warmer.

We at Whitetail Heating & Cooling hope that these tips help you in the event that you’re ever in such a situation. Of course, when you call us for heating repair, we’ll make every effort to get your system back up and running as quickly as possible to spare you this discomfort.
