What Is the First Thing I Should Check?

Checking your thermostat settings, your circuit breaker, and your batteries are the first three things that you should be checking. If you’ve checked those three things and cannot pinpoint the issue, then it is time to seek expert help. In the meantime, before help arrives, it’s time to start prepping your home to keep the warmth inside. And as always, give us a call immediately. Remember, don’t wait for the issue to get worse; then call Monroe Heating & Air day or night, seven days a week, including weekends and holidays.

How Can I Keep My Home Warm?

There are two things you can do to keep your home warm; act fast and call for help! To help keep your home warm, especially with low temperatures outside, our experts recommend pulling out some of those old recipes you’ve been meaning to make but never got around to. The heat from the oven will help keep your home warmer for longer. Also, check all of your windows and doors to ensure no open drafts are coming in. If so, you can roll up one of your old towels to use as a draft guard. Also, remember to shut any room doors you won’t be using. This will help keep the heat going in the areas you need it.

How Do I Avoid Cold Air from Coming In? 

The best thing to do is to be proactive rather reactive. If you are in a bind, you can always use household items to keep the air warm inside your home. This will keep you, your home, and your family safe in case of an emergency. Also, purchase use thick curtains, crack sealer, and draft guards ahead of time. This way, if a heat emergency does happen, you’re prepared for anything!
