You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat 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 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 handful of things you can inspect, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prepare for a situation 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty predicament.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner isn’t working. It may seem bothersome 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 may have been tripped by a power surge or for another reason. If this is the case, switch the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to schedule 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 right steps.
