You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat 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 predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a couple things you can check, as well as a few 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. Hot 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 situation.
- [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 cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It could seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be nice when you need it most.
After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Working:
- 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, switch the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
