If your heat goes out during a winter storm, you can keep warm by closing off rooms you do not need. In addition:

  1. Use only safe sources of alternative heat such as a fireplace, small well-vented wood or coal stove or portable space heaters. Always follow manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Dress in layers of lightweight clothing and wear a cap.
  3. Eat well-balanced meals.

Losing your heat when winters winds are howling is not pleasant. However, by following these simple tips, you should weather the storm more comfortably.
