It’s going to be extremely cold this week. A night with wind chills in the NEGATIVE 20s is enough to cause worry that the furnace may not be able to keep up. I want to share some tips on how to keep safely warm when the furnace is inadequate or you live without heat.
Here’s what you need to do or be prepared to do if it gets cold enough.
Block the draft.
Identify your heat sources.
Keep pets and people as warm as you can, especially extremities.
Be aware if it’s cold enough for water pipes to burst.
Be prepared to hoard up for a few days.
If you have the time and money to prepare before winter comes,
I hope this blog was helpful information to somebody. Stay warm out there.
