You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating in your bed. Your first thought is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to leave yourself in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a couple things you can check, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ready and have a plan for a predicament like this.
Before You Experience Problems:
- Air conditioner service. Warm nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you have a better chance at averting a toasty situation.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It might seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be nice when you need it most.
After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Working:
- Check the circuit breaker. There’s a chance that the breaker to your air conditioner could have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this happens, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
