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

November 04, 2015

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 destined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay on your toes and prepare for a predicament 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [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 comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t running. It may seem annoying 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 might have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this is the case, switch 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 running, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.

No one wants to have an encounter 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.
