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 find yourself in a situation like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a few things you can inspect, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay on your toes and prepare for a situation like this.
Before You Experience Problems:
- Air conditioner service. Hot nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avoid a toasty predicament.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner is out. It might seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will be nice when you need it most.
After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Running:
- Check the circuit breaker. There’s a chance that the breaker to your air conditioner might have been tripped by a power surge or for another reason. If this happens, switch the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
No one wants to put up with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has stopped working, but the possibility is real if you don’t take the correct steps.
