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 find yourself in a situation like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a few things you can inspect, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prepare for a scenario 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 avoid a toasty morning.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Set aside 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 working. 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 is the case, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
