With many moving parts, heating systems wear down eventually. During the midst in winter, even in Las Vegas, having the heating system inoperable can be a major inconvenience. The heating system can simply wear down with time and use, or experience avoidable breakdowns due to neglected maintenance. In any case, due to the heating demands, some consumers may have a wait of up to 48 hours for professional assistance. Today, we at Air Supply Air Conditioning and Heating would like to offer a few recommendations on how to keep your home warm while waiting for repairs.
How to Stay Warm when Furnace Heater is Broken & Stops Working in Winter
1) The Sun’s Warmth. To help keep your space warm, use the sun as you wait out heating system repairs. Allow as much sun as possible inside your home during the hours of daylight. The rooms can be saturated by simply opening the blinds and curtains and letting the sun in.
2) Heat Retention. When the cold waves come through during the winter months, the nights can be unforgivingly cold. During the day, heat you collected inside with be with you during the night, which is an extremely useful application. After the sun has set, be sure to close the curtains and blinds. Proper insulation can really help you withhold the heat, even when your heating system is operating correctly.
3) Winter Mode Ceiling Fan. A ceiling fan has a setting designed for the winter months commonly. While in winter mode, ceiling fans’ blades will go in the reverse direction. To circulate the warm air throughout the various rooms, the ceiling fan pushes the warm air back down in the various rooms as the warm air that is rising upward to the ceiling.
4) Heat Stack Effect. When the warm air rises and ultimately escapes the cold air comes rushing in to replace the warm air as a stack effect. Usually, the tall or multi-story homes are the most likely to have problems. Gaps should be sealed up so that the cold air doesn’t get pulled in as well as from under your doors or your windows and combat them weather stripping to counter the stack effect. As you block out the cold air, and trap the warm air is your ultimate goal.
5) Use of Space Heaters. Heating up a decent sized room depending on the heater potentially, the space heaters or portable heaters are a fairly inexpensive solution. As a safety precaution in many homes, space heaters need to be carefully monitored otherwise, a fallen space heater can result in severe damage as well as fatalities. Additionally, flammable material should be kept away from the heaters to avoid tragedies. By keeping the door closed for the rooms, the space heaters are more efficient as they are designed to warm a single room. Never leave the space heaters on unattended and avoid closing the doors without keeping them attended.
