Don’t wait until winter HVAC emergencies strike to prepare to be proactive; you can form a backup plan now to ensure your and your family’s warmth in the case of a random furnace malfunction or prolonged power outage. It’s better to be prepared than to be sorry! So, follow this expert advice from your Troy Furnace & Air Conditioning family on how to anticipate any sudden winter HVAC emergencies. Protect your family’s comfort during those cold months that lie ahead! 


  1. Indoor Vents: Ensure your HVAC system runs in peak condition all winter long by leaving all interior vents uncovered and unobstructed. Don’t let furniture or other obstructions get in the way; when they’re unrestricted, you’ll see optimal performance! 
  2. Outdoor Vents: Be sure to keep a vigilant eye on the exterior vents of your home. as well during snowy weather. Snow and ice can block exterior vents, ultimately causing poor performance. So, it’s important to be proactive in removing any build-up from the vent surface when it snows to guarantee that your outdoor ventilation works optimally. 
  3. Gas Meter: When shoveling snow and inspecting exterior vents for ice during winter, don’t forget to take the extra time to inspect your gas meter too! Taking a few moments now can save you from a potential headache down the road, so be sure to brush off any snow or ice lurking on its surface carefully.  
  4. Windows: Don’t forget to keep your curtains and blinds shut when it’s especially cold outside or even during periods of snowfall; this simple action can help reduce heat loss in your home. 


  1. Generator: If possible, guard your family, possessions, and peace of mind by investing in a dependable backup generator. No matter the conditions that lead to an unforeseen power outage – whether that be due to inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances. Having a generator at hand provides you with much-needed assurance that you have electricity when it matters most. 
  2. Portable Heater: In the event of an HVAC emergency, such as a power outage, having one or two reliable portable heaters can be very helpful. Luckily, you can pick from a variety of models that all fit various budgets and meet your specific requirements! 
  3. Fireplace: If you own a fireplace, being ready for any emergency with a backup supply of firewood, lighters, and matches is highly suggested. You can ensure you are never surprised by a winter HVAC emergency by preparing your emergency stockpile. 
  4. Extra Blankets: Put your spare blankets to use! Storing them in an accessible container or basket is the perfect backup plan for those times you may need a little extra warmth. 
  5. Windows: If your home is without heat, you can combat the cold and keep icy drafts at bay by utilizing blankets or towels to insulate windows. Draping them over windows will help your house retain heat a tad more while your power or furnace is out. 
  6. Doors: Lastly, to preserve the warmth inside your home, be mindful of how frequently you open external doors. Remember that an influx of cold air will accompany every external doorway that is opened, causing energy to be wasted.
