You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty in your bed. Your first thought 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 arrange AC repair, but there are a couple things you can take a look at, as well as a few things you can do, to stay on your toes and have a plan for a predicament 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 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 cooler while your air conditioner is out. It could 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this occurs, flip 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 operating, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
