What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Orange County Prior to AC Repair

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 leave yourself 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 check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prepare for a situation 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 cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It might seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy 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 is the case, turn the breaker back on and you might 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.
