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

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty 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 end up in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a few things you can take a look at, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prep for a predicament 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner is out. It may seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 happens, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, 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 proper steps.
