You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating 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 find yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ready and prep for a scenario 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 cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It might seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief 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 might have been tripped by a power surge or for another reason. If this occurs, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.

No one wants to deal with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has quit running, but the probability is real if you don’t take the correct steps.
