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 set up AC repair, but there are a couple things you can take a look at, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep for a scenario 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 avert a toasty morning.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find 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 isn’t working. It may seem annoying 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 another reason. If this happens, 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 schedule an appointment for AC repair.
