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 end up in a predicament 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 avert a toasty predicament.
- [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 running. It may seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 may have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this happens, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
