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 leave yourself in a predicament 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 couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and have a plan for a situation 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 have a better chance at averting 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 cool while your air conditioner isn’t running. 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 may have been tripped by a power surge or for another reason. If this occurs, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
