You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat 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 predicament 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 check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prepare 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. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner isn’t working. It could seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 occurs, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
