What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Buellton Prior to AC Repair

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 find yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can check, as well as a few things you can do, to stay on your toes and have a plan for a scenario 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 predicament.
  • [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 could seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Operating:

  • 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 some other reason. If this is the case, turn the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
