KQ2 caught up with a technician at a local company as he made repairs.
Paul Workman from Barnes Heating and Cooling in Savannah says just this week they've answered nearly fifty calls.
The most important thing to remember in case you have problems is not to panic.
Workman says in case your heat does go out the fastest way to produce heat is to turn your heater to its emergency setting and turn the oven on for temporary heat.
The colder it gets, the more problems are expected.
It's always important to have emergency heating equipment in your home, as well as a flashlight and portable radio.
He suggests homeowners have their heating system serviced at least once a year to ensure it's working properly since it's the main source of heat.
Believe it or not a lot of the problems people face during winter months can be caught or prevented beforehand if the furnace is well maintained.
