You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty in your bed. The first thought to go through your head is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to end up in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a few things you can take a look at, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prepare 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty predicament.
- [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 nice when you need it most.
After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Operating:
- 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 another reason. If this occurs, flip the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
