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 situation like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep 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 predicament.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner isn’t running. It may seem inconvenient 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 a different reason. If this occurs, flip 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 running, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
