You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating 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 situation like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a couple things you can take a look at, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ready and prepare for a predicament like this.
Before You Experience Problems:
- Air conditioner service. Warmer nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avoid a toasty morning.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create 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 is out. It may seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy 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 may have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this happens, turn the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
