You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating in your bed. The first thing you think is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to find yourself in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and have a plan for a predicament like this.
Before You Experience Problems:
- Air conditioner service. Warmer nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avoid a toasty situation.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Set aside some room in a closet, drawer or another handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner is out. It may seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief 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 is the case, switch 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 operating, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
