It is never a great situation when you find that you need furnace repair in February. Even though spring isn’t too far off, you do not relish the idea of being cold in your home until then. There are a few feasible ways to deal with needing furnace repair, and also a few creative, albeit impractical ways.
1. Leave – You could opt to go stay somewhere else rather than deal with the furnace repair at the moment. If you have friends or family who would let you hang out for a couple months, that will get you to the warmer weather. It’s also a great time to head south, perhaps to take that Florida vacation you’ve been thinking about. This may not feasible, but it is a way to deal with needing furnace repair.
2. Alternative Heating – In order to hold off on furnace repair for a bit, you could invest in some electric space heaters, electric blankets, and warmer clothing. The chances are that you’ll pay more for these things than for the furnace repair, though– not to mention that these are not as efficient as a properly working gas furnace.
3. Call for Repair – There is a pretty good chance that the furnace repair is not nearly as expensive as you may fear. Before you opt for an impractical solution for dealing with furnace repair, at least get a quote so you know what you are facing.
