You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty 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 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 inspect, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game 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 avoid a toasty predicament.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner is out. It may seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this is the case, switch the breaker back on and you could 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 set up an appointment for AC repair.
