How to Handle a Heating Emergency

Unfortunately, at one point or another, most of us will find ourselves in a heating emergency. Whether your heating system stops functioning for a few hours or a few days, it can be serious if temperatures dip low enough. It's best to familiarize yourself with what to do before such an incident occurs. That's why today we're going over how to handle a heating emergency.


1. Plan ahead

Plan now so that you'll feel confident and comfortable if and when a heating emergency arises. For some, this means investing in a back up heating device. However, remember that if it burns fuel, it needs to vent to the outdoors. If you need help setting up a secondary heating device, reach out to Rusk Heating & Cooling.

2. Conserve heat

Perhaps most obviously, dig out whatever winter apparel you have. If you have a heating emergency and no back up, then you need to bundle up to prevent hypothermia. During the day, let the sun in for natural warmth. South-facing windows are the best for this.

3. Keep a professional's number on-hand

Emergency service is available when you need it from Rusk Heating & Cooling. We understand that heating emergencies do not always wait until normal business hours. That's why we offer 24/7 emergency help! We'll come to your home at any time of day or night.
