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 destined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a few things you can do, to stay on your toes and have a plan 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 avoid a toasty situation.
- [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 is out. It could seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief 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 might 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 tripped and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
