You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty 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 end up in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a couple things you can check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prep 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty morning.
- [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 comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t running. It could seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy 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 might have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this happens, turn the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
